it is almost impossible to see all the things in SF without a bike. The service is very helpful and bikes are good. They offer tourist bikes but also tandems or mountain bikes. In 4 hours we made over 30km.

We walked along Fisherman's Wharf to this rental office, closest to the start of the bike trail to the bridge. That way you don't have to cope with biking on roads until you reach the bridge. All the rental places charge the same anyway. The staff were friendly and helpful and the bikes comfortable. Our ride to the bridge was... More

We rented our bikes at the Bike and Roll near the Hyatt at Embarcadero Center. This is a longer distance from the Golden Gate bridge than the rentals at Fisherman's Wharf and requires riding in traffic for a few miles (although there is a bike lane). The person we rented from gave very basic instructions on the route to the... More

My husband and I are a very active couple so what better way to get around the San Francisco Bay than biking it. The Bike & Roll Staff were super friendly and so helpful with getting us all set up before going on our adventure. We started off biking around Pier 39 and than strolled over to a couple of... More

We found these guys and all looked great, hired our bikes and had to give our credit card which they said was just an authorisation and would not be put through. Had a great ride over bridge, returned bikes and away we went. Checked credit statement that night to find the$200 was on there. After various emails they have not... More

Museum of fine Arts, then over the golden gate, and explore Sausalito. If your up for more of a ride explore... More

I was looking to get a nice, scenic bike ride in and found these guys outside the Hyatt Regency in the financial district, but they have various locations. It was around 4pm and I thought it was too late to rent a bike but they mentioned there was a drop off location on Hyde until 9pm which was very convenient!... More

Was a really awesome experience, it was my first time in SF and didn't know where to begin. I did the whole bike tour! Started at the Pier Building, Golden Gate, Redwoods and cycled through a couple of small american towns and took the ferry from Tiburon back to SF all for $32. Best value for money!

We rented two bikes from the Columbus Ave location, for one day. They asked us to leave a credit card for a deposit of $100 each. I did so, thinking this was a reputable place. We returned the bike that evening, but they still charged us the $200, without telling me, without calling my cell phone number that I left... More

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
