Full description
See San Francisco in an ecologically conscious way, while comfortably negotiating the city’s famous hills by electric bike. With your 24-hour rental bike you can cruise along the waterfront of San Francisco Bay, free of all the car traffic on the streets and the foot traffic on the sidewalks, and follow along the city’s exclusive bicycle paths. Bay City Bike has a brand new fleet of bikes that provide a healthy option for experiencing San Francisco. Take the less-traveled routes through this spectacular 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, and hand shifters and brakes. Bike through Golden Gate Park and along the coast, through the Headlands, into Muir Woods, or to Mt. Tam. Take an exciting ride across the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito. From the bridge you’ll marvel at the majestic views of the bay, the ocean, and the San Francisco skyline.

All good!

After about 2km we had chain damage on an e-bike. Unfortunately we did not make any further calls by phone, but I returned to the rental station with the error-free bike and it was immediately helped and we were able to get a replacement bike at the next station about 300m away. A trip over the bridge is highly recommended. We are back to Sausalito and by ferry (we bought the tickets in advance at the rental station). All in all, everything was good, at first very annoying with the damage to the bike, but it was also easy and uncomplicated to help. In general, I would always recommend a printed voucher for the smartphone ticket, as some of them cannot do much with it and so they have something in their hand

Great experience!

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!
