Super Bikes

We rode from Union Square to Fishermans Wharf and on to the Golden Gate Bridge. Crossed it. Visited Sausalito and came back to to Union Square. A wonderful day trip. Bikes are in excellent condition and also 10 bikes at one time are no prob. as long as you book on day ahead.

New Favorite Way to Explore

This was my first time renting a bike to explore a city and I would love to do it again and again. Parkwide made renting simple, easy, and quick. If you have an extra day in San Francisco and expect sunshine I would definitely suggest renting a bike because San Francisco has great trails to see all parts of this amazing area!

Unique Way To See San Fran

Rented 3 ebikes at the Union Square. Awesome way to explore the city and ebikes make the hills manageable. My advise is that if you want to rent ebikes do it online and well in advance. The process of booking online was easy and the bikes were ready when we arrived with maps, helmets, and fully charged bikes.
