Full description

See San Francisco in an ecologically conscious way, while comfortably negotiating the city’s famous hills with your electric bike. With your all-day rental bike, cruise along the car and pedestrian-free waterfront of San Francisco Bay and ride along the city’s bike paths.

Enjoy a brand new fleet of bikes that provide an active way to experience San Francisco. Take the less-traveled routes through the city on a self-guided tour. Feel the e-Moto battery kick in as you pedal, propelling you towards your destination. The electric bikes have a range of 16-20 miles on a full charge and feature a full-comfort seat, hand shifters, and brakes. Bike through Golden Gate Park and along the coast, through the Headlands, into Muir Woods, or to Mt. Tam. Take a ride across the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito. From the bridge, take in the views of the bay, the ocean, and the San Francisco skyline.

Ebikes are the only way to go in SF , esp if you ride over the bridge to Saucalito. The hills are brutal otherwise. It’s great you can put the bikes on the ferry back. Lots of bike tracks which is good. The locals are pretty serious risers. Make sure you stay on the right hand side - or you will incur their wrath!

Our tour guide was great! He was funny, knowledgeable, and patient! The first spot was a bit of a challenge but I am out shape. He took some great pictures for us. The second site, was a hike and I decided not to pursue, however the views the experience and the tour guide made it all worth it! I would highly recommend!!

I rented an electric bike, because regular bikes were not available (I booked on the same day). I definitely do not regret it! The weather was windy, but with this bike it did not take any effort to bike the SF hills and the Golden Gate Bridge. The staff was very friendly. Overall a great experience!
