FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Answers to some common questions

Location

We meet outside the Reviere cafe/SFWheels bike shop. If you take the N Judah street car it stops right at the corner of Cole & Carl, about 3 doors from the cafe. If you take an Uber or cab, allow for traffic. Parking is tough in Cole Valley, so allow plenty of extra time if you drive. While it is permit parking, you will be fine leaving your car parked for the time we are out.

Things You Need

I provide water, helmets and locks. You need to dress warm, wear pants that are narrow at the ankles and bring money for ice-cream! Bring a camera, or camera device. We stop for pictures!

You Will Need to Ride a Bike

You should be comfortable on a bike. We don't ride in traffic very much, but we do ride around cars. I will give you tips and pointers on safe riding.

Trip Preparation

To rent our bikes you need to provide an ID and a credit card. We won’t charge the card, but it works as your deposit.

Things to Know

E-bikes or pedal-assist bikes make the hills of San Francisco a joy! They have a range of about 20 miles, and plenty of power for our hills.

It’s San Francisco, not L.A., not Vegas. Wear layers! It gets cold, it gets warm (not often) and it gets breezy. Wear narrow ankle pants so you can pedal. 

You should have basic bike skills. The e-bikes do the work, but you will be safer and happier if you have some experience.
