Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. This was the first time I rented bikes for the afternoon and we had a great experience. The bikes are in great shape and for the most part comfortable. Definitely will go to this place again for my future bike rentals!

3 of us walked in to Bay City Bike on a Friday afternoon and we were immediately waited on and given bikes! We even asked if we could ride a double (2 seater bike) and they let us test it out before we did! We ended up opting instead for 3 single bikes only.The staff was extremely helpful with adjusting our seats and helmets. We were only in the area for the afternoon so we only wanted to rent the bikes for about an hour. They told us there was a two hour minimum, which actually worked out really well because it took us almost two hours to bike there and back. It was a really awesome way to see the bay area! I wasn't really looking forward to the bike ride, but I'm so glad we did it!

Great bikes and great service! Our family of four rented bikes to ride to Tiburon and take the ferry back. My daughter and I both got the Giant Rapid and we really enjoyed the bike - it was quick and light! I enjoyed it so much that I have been looking to buy one myself. My mountain bike seems so slow now! My husband and son got a tandem that worked out great. They had great bikes, great directions, friendly service (face it,bike shops aren't know for friendliness) and if you are from Germany, there are lots of German speakers. Highly recommended.

I come to San Francisco every year for a week. Also, I am an experienced cyclist. It's easier to rent a bike for a few days than to bring my own. When I found BCB I was looking for a higher quality bike and BCB had them at reasonable rates. This is my third year, second renting the Giant Rapid. This is a great bike at a very reasonable rate. BCB also changes the pedals to SPD clipless at no additional charge. I have always found them to be very professional and the bikes in great condition. Highly recommended for this type of use.

Great experience! We rented a tandem bike and rode across the golden gate bridge. The friendly service is what gave this company a 5 star rating!

I joined the guided tour biking from Fisherman's Wharf to Sausalito via Golden Gate Bridge. It was fun, the bike was good, tour guide was helpful, scenes are amazing.

We absolutely loved this part of our trip! We biked the golden gate bridge through The bay city bike tours. They have 3 different locations which made them easy to find. We actually found out about them through the Go card San Fran which let us use them for free as a part of the card. We got good directions easy to use bikes and lots of different bike options like motorized (which would've been nice with the intense hills), attachable kids and tandem bikes.

I have used Bay City Bike (Taylor St branch) several times now and every time I have received courteous and helpful service, once including a prompt turnout for a puncture.
The bikes are always well maintained and they also offer plenty of resource like maps and ferry tickets. Thoroughly recommended.

Two friends and myself took a bike tour with this rental company in SF. We are from the area. We enjoyed it, although hard for some of us :) The guide was patient and kind with us all, would highly recommend them.

The bikes we rented were good quality and well maintained. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly. The routes were well-signed and maps easy to follow. Would thoroughly recommend touring SF by bike.It's a wonderful experience.

Great Adventure. We did not have enough time to go to Sausalito but we did go over the GG Bridge and back. It was a perfect length without being too strenuous. Great way to cross the bridge if you don't mind lots of people to zigzag through.

We had a great day. Our guide, Per was very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the route and our stop in Sausalito. We kept our bikes for the rest of the day and based on information from Per we found a great route to ride around San Francisco exploring (of course we got lost, but, it made it even more adventurous. Didn’t hurt that the weather was beautiful, warm and sunny. Thanks.
