Love love love this place! One of the best spinning studios in Los Angeles. The owners Shirley, Steve, and Susan are great spin instructors. They really know how to get a room full of people sweating. They are reasonably priced, they provide parking with validation, and they make signing up for classes very easy. I have an unlimited membership for a year which cost me $100 a month and I find it very reasonable. Otherwise it is more expensive if you pay per class. They also have monthly deals and three-month packages. Your first class is free !

Seattle

We had a good experience here. They have good rates and the satff provided us a map w/ bike routes and walked us through which routes to take to see what we wanted to see around the city. Plus, you get 20% off when you check in on yelp.

Helmets are optional if you're 18 or older in SF, but I'd recommend getting them. I took a spill when I tried to cut across some cable tracks and my wheel got stuck and was super thankful that I opted for the helmet.

Each bike also came with a lock, pouch pocket to keep maps or whatever in, bell (which came in handy in crowded places), and a cable cord to secure stuff of the rack on the back of the bike.

There are a number of rental spots but we chose the one near the Pier and then rode over the Golden Gate Bridge which has a pathway. It was a great way to see a lot of the bay area. Once across the bridge, you can bring your bike onto the ferry to return to San Francisco if you don't want to cycle back.

I took this trip with my mom, and she turned out to be a little more adventurous than I did - we rode from SF, to Sausalito, to Mill Valley, and finally to Tiburon, where we took the ferry back. Needless to say, my legs were shaking, since the ride from Mill Valley to Tiburon is 90% hills. But it was a beautiful day, and the view crossing the Golden Gate (not to mention ogling at the multi-million dollar homes in Tiburon) is something I'll never forget.

I've driven over the Golden Gate Bridge maybe a hundred times, but the most memorable trip was when I rented a bike from these folks on the SF side of the bridge, then biked all the way across and over to Sausalito. You can grab lunch there before hopping on the ferry (with your bike) back to the city. Totally fun day trip!

I WAS AT ONE MUSEUM IN SAN FRANCISCO AND THE BIKES THAT I RENTED WERE STOLEN, I CALLED THE POLICE AND THE COMPANY TO REPOR THEM AND WHEN I ARRIVED TO THE POWELL STREET OFFICE THEY TREAT ME REALLY BAD AND CHARGED ME $2,600 DOLLARS FOR THE BIKE BECAUSE THE HAVE NOT INSURANCE!!!

THIS COMPANY SUCKS!

Taking a ride across the Golden Gate Bridge is breath taking. From our condo you ride on all private pathways and there is only a small uphill part (walk your bike)... and if you want more.... at the end of the bridge you can ride down into Sausalito (all downhill) and take the Ferry back to SF...
NOTE: Start your journey before 9.30am and avoid the crowds that walk across.
Blazing Saddles will sometimes have bikes to rent across from Safeway (3 blocks from apartment). Call them to find out more.

We rented a tandem bike and had NO idea how difficult the bike ride would be from Blazing Saddles across Golden Gate Bridge! The hills were what was so killer, and riding a bike for two was an extra challenge. However, we felt super accomplished once the ride was over and truly enjoyed the gorgeous views.

This is the way to view the Golden Gate Bridge, by bike. Blazing Saddles knows the area and the bikes. They'll provide you with a map and all the equipment you'll need. They'll even sell you the ferry ride back to San Francisco if you're heading out to Tiburon or Sausalito. It does require a bit of stamina to do this bike ride, so be prepared. A nice tip is that there are coupons in the tourist pamphlets you see around town.

the blazing saddles had me prepared to blaze the trails to the golden gate bridge.

their high tech advanced vehicles (ha!) come equipped with a paper map navigation system that routes you to the golden gate bridge, salsalito, the cruise, and back. the bikes are equipped with changeable gears, rear carrier with elastic straps, and a front pouch convenient for wallet, camera, and any small miscellaneous storage.

the representative were very helpful in explaining the route as well as different rental rates and options to return back to the rental station. we were given in advance the ferry tickets back from salsalito, in case that we want to take the ferry, but if you decide not to you can always return the tickets with no charge.

the representatives were also detail enough to note that the chains and gears might ruin jeans, so they rubber band the legs of your jeans to make sure the bikes do not ruin your clothes.

they were out of the 7 dollars/hr rental bikes and only had 8 dollars/hr rental bikes left, but they gave the bikes to us for 7 dollars/hr anyways.

the ride is not intensive but there are occasional uphill rides that takes extra muscle works, but once you get to the gg bride you forget about the pains and aches.

i highly recommend anyone visiting sf without a car to take the 16 miles roundtrip challenge to the golden gate bridge from pier 39 because it's one unforgettable experience.

A chain company but they work. They rent out all types of bicycle, give guided and self-guided tour routes and are located all over the city. The app is also cool containing the maps of the city and the tour routes.

You can get a 10% discount from Yelp. The service was mediocre, the receptionist didn't even apply my discount after $34 for two people for tandem bike riding. It was our first time, so that was memorable. There are other places for bike rentals but this place had more tandem bikes available. It's a great way to see the Palace of Fine Arts, Fort Mason, along the pier, and Golden Gate Bridge.

I see tourists peddling over the Golden Gate, pumping up the steep hills in Marin, and cruising around the hip Mission District on road bikes with Blazing Saddles bags strapped to the front. They keep their bikes tuned up and ready to ride. Plus, each bike comes with an easy to read, laminated bike-map that allows you to blaze your own trail.

With a handful of outlets in close proximity of each other, this bike rental place makes is easy and convenient to rent a bike for a few hours to a full day if wanted. During labor day weekend there was a wait at the outlet closest to the ferry building, but because of the other nearby locations we were able to go to a different location without a wait. The staff is really friendly and the bikes are kept in great shape. They can even suggest a route for you if requested. When the weather is right and you are with a good group of friends, there is little else that beat a bike ride across the golden gate and all the way into Salsalito. They can also help with ferry tickets if needed.

Well-located and well-regarded, BS is near Fisherman's Wharf and the Maritime Museum. Rent a bike from the friendly staff and head west through Fort Mason toward the marina, the Presidio, and the Golden Gate Bridge!
