San Francisco Bike Rental - Explore San Francisco on your own

Why We Love This Tour

Don’t let the hills scare you! This is by far one of the best and most scenic ways to cover some ground around San Francisco. One of the best ways to experience the Golden Gate Bridge is to bike over it and spend the afternoon eating seafood with a beautiful city view from Sausalito then bring the ferry back. Bikes are also an excellent way to explore flatter parts of the city like the massive Golden Gate Park or eating your way through the Mission District.”

Informative, Friendly, and Helpful

The staff were informative, friendly and helpful making the process very simple. They provided us with a map and showed us where to go. They also gave us the tickets for the return journey by ferry from Sausalito which we did not have to pay for if unused ($11). We biked the Golden Gate Bridge which was a lovely route, only 2 hills! Only downside was the fog over the bridge but sunny Sausalito more than made up for it. We were not expecting anything from Sausalito but it was a beautiful little town with shops, restaurants and galleries

Excellent Day Out

This is not be missed. The staff were incredibly friendly and the cycle routes were easy to use. There was plenty of time to take pictures on the bridge, and Sausalito was a lovely place to have lunch. Ferrying with the bike was easy and the staff again were efficient and friendly when returning the bikes. Excellent day out.
