I highly recommend biking around Sacramento, and this is a great place to pick up a ride. They have basic cruisers, hybrids, and electric bikes. Very helpful in adjusting the seat on my rental and pointing me to the path along the river.

We rented two bikes here and rode along the trail. They provided us a map, helmet, basket, and lock. Simple service, friendly, and quick. It really was no hassle, and a good use of vacation time to rent bike from here.
