Bay City Bike Rentals & Tours

Bike San Francisco Earns TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014

Details

Join Bay City Bike tour guides for an urban adventure from the seat of a rented bicycle or pedal off on your own for amazing views and lots of fun. They can even tell you the best way to get a view without tackling these famous hills (save that for the cable car ride.)

Golden locations

Pedal off on your independent tour from a location convenient to lots of do-not-miss sights. Four rental shops in Fisherman’s Wharf will start you off in the right direction for one of the most popular of all bicycle routes: a trip over the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito.

The newest Bay City Bike location is in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, right at the doorstep of Golden Gate Park.

Get the most out of your day -- four of the Bay City Bike locations are open at 8 a.m. seven days a week and the Haight-Ashbury/Golden Gate location is open from 9 a.m.

Guided tours

The choice is yours, a self-guided tour or an award-winning daily guided tour of San Francisco highlights accompanied by an expert. Guided tours by bike push off twice a day at 10 a.m. and at 1 p.m. to cross the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito. Leave two to three hours for coasting downhill into Sausalito, exploring the village, grabbing an ice cream and returning at your leisure. Half the fun is on the bridge and the other half is on the ferry which you’ll hop on with your bike for the scenic ride home. The 8-mile journey is recommended for everyone, including novice and children accompanied by adults.

At 11 a.m., the Streets of San Francisco takes off for a guided urban adventure featuring amazing views without impossible hills. This is a March to October adventure recommended for ages 13 who are accustomed to bike lanes and urban bicycling. Your 15 miles takes four hours, including lunch and a rest stop while you explore loads of top city sights.

From March through October, visitors can join Bay City Bike guides for a California Sunset Tour for all ages. Up to three hours long, it includes the piers, the waterfront and the Golden Gate Bridge. Put 12 miles on the clock for this fun and educational tour that’s good for all ages.

Self-guided tours

Suggested routes for the independent biker from Fisherman’s Wharf include great sights away from city streets such as Aquatic Park, the historic Presidio and Muir Woods National Monument, home to the giant redwoods. From Haight-Ashbury, take Golden Gate Park’s bike lines (one of the nation’s largest urban parks) to the Conservatory of Flowers, de Young Museum, California Academy of Sciences and more, or go right to the shores of the Pacific at Ocean Beach.

Rental choices

Choose the Bay City Bike that you like best from the broad range in the fleet. They’re accessorized with a front camera bag, rear rack, water bottle holder, locks, helmet and maps. Options include comfort bikes for all ability levels, two different lightweight performance bikes with up to 36 gear settings,  tandem bikes, kids bikes, tag-a-longs, trailers, child seats and the men’s and women’s electric bikes.
