Wow! What an experience for this old fat guy from Texas! I was very hesitant about riding an electric bike on a 16 mile round trip over the Golden Gate Bridge! The Blazing Saddles employees were very helpful on getting us lined up with the bikes and safety helmets. John, our tour guide, was excellent. The ride by the shoreline and over the Golden Gate Bridge was a once in a lifetime experience fir all three of us! Worth the time and the expense. 👍👍

Riding the bikes over the bridge was amazing. It was a bit challenging going with a large group because several were new to bike riding which held us up a little. However we had a great guide who did a great job. I did not read anything in the information provided that we would be paying a 500 deposit when we arrived. I didn't bring a card with me for the ride however it friend did and it saved us. Just make sure you are prepared.

This was an amazing tour. The electric bikes are a must for a great experience. Our tour guide Jeremiah was awesome and very helpful. If you are booking during and post Covid ask questions. Ferry is closed, There is a cost for them to pick up bikes if you don’t bike back on your own. Also, bundle up if you are not use to cold weather 😊. Overall great experience

Hey Ginger, Thanks for the kind words about Jeremiah. We also think he's awesome! The ferries are scheduled to reopen soon, so next time you're in town, you can ride the ferry back!

Really enjoyed and tour guide good crack. Only thing was we came back from Sausalito alone and were not instructed how to navigate our way back to the return point. Found cycle lanes confusing and would have liked a little guidance. Didn’t spoil our day though.

The guides did a superb job preparing the riders for each phase of the trip. Daniel, our guide, was personable, easy going, and knowledgeable. All members of Blazing Saddles from check in to check out were friendly, courteous, enthusiastic, and helpful. I would definitely recommend this adventure.
