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.

Good rental company overall. Bike that are a little old, but it does the job. Negative point, almost all the helmets they provide do not fit the head properly. Be careful for an electric bike rental, they asked us for a 500 dollar deposit (debited) per bike. We were 4 (the deposits are not necessarily returned immediately). We simply asked that they keep our IDs for guarantee.

Cycling through San Francisco is highly recommended. Do that with an E bike because it is quite hilly and people with a normal bike were sweating a lot. By bike you can see a lot of the city in 1 day and of course the golden gade bridge is also really cool by bike. Always cycle somewhere, lock it up and enjoy your location wherever you are. Battery was sufficient for a good day. If you have max support all the time, the battery will of course last less. Cycling between traffic takes some getting used to and also pay attention to the 1-way roads. Helmet is mandatory and is included in the rental. Shop closed at 18:30 instead of 20:00 as indicated on Getyourguide.

One of the two half-loaded bikes stopped working, the return by boat was mandatory. Overall a nice experience with the e-bike to cross the golden gate and arrive in Sausalito, but for the inconvenience and the amount spent (NB: 800 € deposit x2 bike) GetYourGuide does not advise the amount for the deposit. It does not deserve the 5 stars
