Bike the Bridge! At Blazing Saddles Bike Rental and Tours we want our guests to come away from a day on our bikes feeling as if they have just experienced the very best that our city has to offer. Whether it is a local resident enjoying our state of the art equipment or a visitor seeing the city for the first time, we encourage our riders to enjoy the bike friendly environment of San Francisco. Blazing Saddles was one of the first in the industry to develop a proprietary map of suggested routes and points of interest, and we have been a major pioneer in promoting cycling through the Presidio National Park, over the Golden Gate Bridge and into Sausalito and Tiburon. All of our seven locations in San Francisco have easy access to a car-free bike path that winds around the city by the bay. We have the largest fleet of bikes in San Francisco, including state of the art electric bikes, tandems and kids' bikes. We also have high performance road and mountain bikes for those who want to explore Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Mt. Tamalpais State Park. We rent bikes 365 days a year and are open at 8am every day. For those that want something more, we offer a daily tour with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. No reservations necessary.

Don't have much experience in renting bikes but this place was super. The staff was super friendly and most importantly super professional and prepared. If I ever have to rent another bike in San Francisco, I will definitely go back here !

Very friendly helpful people with reasonable standard bikes (24 gears). They tell you where you can bike to, and provide you with a ticket for the boat back from either Sausalito or Tiburon. The rids accross the Golden Gate bridge is good fun, and not that streneous. Lots of fun on a sunny day.

Well if you are lucky and get a clear day , then this is quite a ride. No need for great fitness , only a couple of short hills which you walk the bikes up. The views along the way are superb, across the Golden Gate Bridge then cruise down the hill into saucalito for lunch. We took the ferry... More

Firstly I see that there have been a few negative reviews, all I can do is give an accurate review of our experience which was first class. We are staying at the Argonaut, which by the way offers a few free passes for bike hire at Blazing Saddles each day, so it was the perfect place for us to hire... More

We hired two bikes with the intention of riding over the bridge and then exploring the surrounding city. Once we hit the bridge it became apparent there was an issue with my riding partners bike. The gears constantly slipped and if she tried to change the gears, well all hell broke loose. We made do managed to get across the... More

Overall it was a great experience...the weather was beautiful and visibility was amazing. I started the tour in Fishermans Wharf and biked over the bridge to Sausalito, and took the ferry back to SF. It was a great way to see the sites. **Be warned though...This is not an easy, casual ride as they advertise....this is a work-out, and its... More

People here are very friendly and very eager to make sure you have wonderful experience biking through San Francisco. They inform you of the best bike route to follow that leads you across the bridge, through Sausalito, and back. Prices were really good, and if you reserve online, you get 20% off. The bikes themselves, were a bit on the... More

Bikes were in great condition, came with a key and lock too. They give you tickets for the ferry back if you venture too far for ~$11 each if you use it. If you're fit enough I recommend going from the pier, across the bridge to Sausalito. Tiburon is too far but does offer good views if you're able. They... More
