Frequently Asked Questions
Our power-assisted eco-friendly electric bikes come equipped with a motor and torque sensor that provides an extra boost when pedaling. Electric bikes will help you get up those San Francisco hills and cover more ground without any extra effort.
We recommend four favorite rides: Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, the former extended from Sausalito to Tiburon, City Coast and Parks, and exploring the Marin Headlands (can include Muir Woods, Mt. Tamalpais, Conzelman Loop & more). Recommendations are based on riding ability, distance, and time.
The most popular route, suitable for everyone- beginner, children & those who do not regularly ride- is Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito. Continuing onto Tiburon is also an easy ride but a farther distance. For advanced riders, we recommend heading up towards the Marin Headlands or Mt. Tamalpais. Please consult our staff during checkout to determine the best ride for your day of rental.
All kids have different riding skill levels. The good news is we have something for everyone! The baby seat can fit a six month old up to a sturdy toddler while the trailer is good for carrying 1-2 toddlers and their gear. Adults can pair up with a child, via tag-a-long or tandem bicycle: both are great for the budding cyclist who pedals only when inclined, but still feels the pride of the ride!
Absolutely! California helmet law is mandatory under age 18.
