This is not a bad thing, just something to be aware of, bike rental was cheap and painless, pay on return. Bikes were all in stock and ready for walk ins, check the saddle height and you are good to go.

Rent any type of bike--good selection. The map is provided--go as far as suits you. Very little traffic. Plenty of room on the road for cycling.

We rented high quality mountain bikes and enjoyed the 17-miles drive. Rental fees are high for a short period but much more reasonable if renting for 2 days. It is a great area for mountain biking!

Spent a morning with a great road bike and a good ride along the coast. Bay Bikes made it an easy process to rent, pick up, pay and drop off the rental. Everything was convenient and efficient. If you are looking for a good road...More

After our gruelling Golden Gate bike ride we learned our lesson for bike rental. This time we went electric and hired two e-bikes. What a fabulous invention !!! You still have to pedal and you can vary the electrical assistance so that alleviated my guilt...More
