Although Yelpers give Blazing Saddles a 2.5-star average and although some say the customer service was unsatisfying, Frommer's recommends the bike shop for tours, and TripAdvisors give it an average of 3.5 owl eyes:
- I never thought I would like this, hate heights, hate water, and hate lots of traffic but the expereince and thrill of riding a bike over the golden gate bridge is amazing. – mrcanfield3, TripAdvisor
- The bikes are well maintained, they come with a handle bar bag to keep small items and paniers with buggies so you can tie your bag on. The ride itself is pretty easy only 2 hills to cycle up and there not hard. our guide took reguar [sic] stops to enable us to take pictures and comfort breaks,plenty of rest rooms along the way. The bridge itself is very busy with pedistrains [sic] and cyclists sharing the same path, the views are amazing and well worth it. The ride into Sausalito is great all down hill. – Wilf2009, TripAdvisor
