People at the bike rental center have veex extremely helpful, giving me all sorts of information, especially because I had a particular place I wanted to reach. Although I was pretty late, arriving around 6PM they still accepted my return. Thank you for an amazing afternoon ride!

Had a blast! So easy to see San Francisco on a bike. Rode over the Golden Gate Bridge and rode around Sausalito. Will never forget this amazing day using your bike rentals!

Thanks for your review! Your absolutely right, that parts San Francisco are very hilly, which is way we like to suggest routes that avoid hills. Such as rides along the Embarcadero, or along the National Park Bay Trail to Golden Gate Bridge. Of course, there are other great rides in San Francisco, but those two are the best for avoiding...

The actual bike ride is amazing, although I found out how bad of shape I have gotten into! The people at the counter were helpful at letting us know where to go and where to stop if we wanted to see certain things. The views of and from the bridge were awesome as was Sausoiito (we did the trip from... More

We completed our RV stop in SF by renting bikes for (unfortunately only) a couple of hours biking, but hey, biking is such a very convenient way of crossing a great city (and being Dutch not a pain ;-). Hopping from some of the great points at the various Piers with a cherry on the pie visit of the Golden... More

Great bikes at a great price, just be careful parking your car in this city. Came back to it all smashed up from a hit and run after biking!

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
