Bike Rental in San Francisco?(6 posts)

Bike Rental in San Francisco?outofthesaddle

I thought I had seen some suggestions before but I couldn't find the thread. I have a friend coming into town and he needs to rent a road bike in SF. Does anyone know of a shop that rents road bikes? Also, any suggestions for rides accessible to SF by bike?

I was just in San Fran, and rented a mtn bike, I rode over the golden gate to sausalito and back by ferry, great ride. The bridge was very busy with all types of riders. While I can't help you with a road bike, I can suggest the short ride over to sausalito, it was great, the bike shops had other routes all mapped out for you. I took this shot on my ride. 4 days of fog and one clear day.

There's a shop that's on either Mason or the next street after that between North Point and Beach Streets. This is near Fishermans Wharf.

Is he into doing serious riding or just slow easy pace?

As for routes, try the 49 loop, ride into Sausalito, Angel Island, or Golden Gate park. He can also go up Mt. Tam, Stinson Beach, Point Reyes and beyond supposing he's into more serious riding.

i'm thinking you're talking about Blazing Saddles... it's 40 bucks to rent a pretty nice Ultegra equipped Marin road bike.

Here's a link. (In terms of actually *shopping* at Lombardi's, people I know have mixed feelings.)

A little late, but perhaps it will help those searching next time....

For $50 they have Looks(-es?) and Santa Cruz available. They're mostly Medium-sized frames. I think the owner uses them for personal use.. but fairly good stuff on the component side.
