Fleet Week is returning to San Francisco! October 1-9 marks the 2017 Fleet Week and what better way to see all the sights than by bicycle? The event is expected to draw record-breaking crowds this year, so that means car traffic and parking will be extra challenging during this time. So, leave the four wheels at home and get rolling on two wheels.

Renting a bicycle from us at Blazing Saddles will allow you to breeze along the waterfront as you take in the sights on the bay as well as in the sky. The Parade of Ships is on Friday and you can ride along the Bayfront as the ships sail by. The Air Shows are Friday, Saturday and Sunday - though the Blue Angels usually start practicing on Wednesday and you can catch the unofficial action even earlier. Check out all the events here

Once the official events of Fleet Week conclude, you can keep rolling on your rental bike and take it all the other beautiful sights of San Francisco. Bike the Golden Gate Bridge all the way to Sausalito and then return on the ferry boat. Or, cycle through the car-free bike paths of Golden Gate Park and enjoy the many museums and gardens of the park.

We offer a special promotion for all military personnel and their families during Fleet Week, so head on into our shop in uniform (or with a military ID) and we’ll get you rolling with a FREE rental for each paid rental. For those civilians visiting San Francisco for Fleet Week, go ahead and reserve on our website and you’ll enjoy 20% off the daily rate.

Planes, Boats, and Bikes! Fleet Week San Francisco and Blazing Saddles are a perfect combination.
