San Francisco: Valentine's Day discount on tandem bike rentals

Los Angeles Times Daily Travel & Deal blogger

A bicycle built for two might make for a romantic spin around San Francisco. Bike and Roll offers a discount on daily tandem bike rentals for Valentine's Day -- and lots of suggestions on where to pedal. Maybe over the Golden Gate Bridge, which turns 75 this year?

The deal: Ride With Your Valentine on a Bicycle Built for 2, as the promotion is called, offers tandems for $45 a day instead of the usual $60. There's also a $5 damage waiver charge. Reservations are required, and the deal is based on availability. Bike and Roll has five rental kiosks around the city that are open 8 a.m.-6 p.m. daily in winter.

When: The offer is good Feb. 11-17 only.

Details: Check out Bike and Roll's self-guided routes around San Francisco and beyond. From the rental office at 899 Columbus Ave. in North Beach, you can take a 9-mile ride on easy terrain over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and return to the city by ferry. Another ride, about 25 miles one way, takes you to Muir Woods National Park before returning via ferry.
