We’ll be closed on Thanksgiving but open on Friday, the 29th 10am to 5pm.
We are open 10am to 5:00pm Wednesday through Friday, 10am to 5:30 Saturday and Sunday; usually closed Mondays, Tuesdays and very rainy days.
We are located at Pier 40, near AT&T Ballpark (home of the Giants), at Townsend and the Embarcadero. We are NOT near Pier 39 or Fisherman’s Wharf. [Even numbered piers are south of the Ferry Building (Market Street); odd to the north.] Microsoft’s ‘Bing’ erroneously lists us as being at Pier 15 because Microsoft has lost its way in so many ways.
The Bike Hut is run by the Bike Hut Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)((3) organization. Our mission is to promote cycling through youth training and providing affordable bike rental, repair and sales. We also try to recycle donated bikes and parts to reduce the waste stream.
We have mostly hybrid and mountain bikes for rent, but we also have some tandems, touring, road, cruiser, single-speed/fixie, tag-a-long, kids’ bikes and others.
Here are pictures of some of our rental bikes.
$6 per hour or $23 per day for adult hybrid and mountain bikes (plus tax = $25)
$7 per hour or $27.50 per day for adult road bikes (plus tax = $30)
$11 per hour or $37 per day for tandems (plus tax = $40)
$4 per hour for tag-a-longs or trailer or $15 for the day.
$3 per hour for kids’ bikes
$10 flat rate for baby seat rental
We have a few fixed gear and road bikes at this time, as well as good touring bikes with racks and panniers. Why spend $250 to fly your bike in when we can outfit you for a fraction of the cost. We also have SPD and other clipless pedals that can be installed by request. Touring bike rates are $100 for the first week and $10 per additional day. This includes racks, panniers, sleeping pad, lock, helmet, tax, and fixins.
Also available are baby seats, one Burley trailer and two tag-along attachments for kids. Please email or call ahead to give us time to set one up on an appropriate bike.
Rates include lock and helmet. We do offer significant discounts on multi-day and long-term rentals. Bikes must be stored indoors at night, so check with your hotel, et al., beforehand. Day rentals are for up to 24 hours. We don’t have a two hour minimum.
Long-term rates for most bikes are generally calculated as listed below:
$25 for 24 hours- tax, helmet and lock included.
$15 each additional day.
$75 for a week.
$125 for two weeks to a month.
$200 for two months.
Road bikes and special requirements additional.
Reservations are helpful but not required. Please email us at TheBikeHut@gmail.com with details of number in party and approximate heights and we will try to have the most appropriate bikes ready for you.
The west side of the Golden Gate Bridge is sometimes closed to bicycles. Cyclists may share the east side with pedestrians. Allow extra time to get to Sausalito and please be careful of/respectful to the understandably in-awe or in-a-daze pedestrians on the bridge. The Sausalito ferry is about $11, one-way.
The ferries in Sausalito do fill up, so try to get there early. The ferries dock in San Francisco at either the Ferry Building (about a mile away from the Hut) or Pier 41 (near Fisherman’s Wharf, about two miles away from the Hut), so it is best if you take whichever one leaves next. You might want to consider taking the ferry TO Sausalito and riding back. It is a bit of a slog up the hill from Sausalito to the bridge, but you do have the afternoon wind at your back from the bridge back to the Bike Hut.
