Here is a press release from Pedal Anywhere. Let us know if you use it and how you like it.
PedalAnywhere is excited to announce a new partnership with Treat Street Bicycle Works (18th and Treat) in the Mission District to bring long-term bike rental to San Francisco beginning Monday, May 12.
Every day thousands of tourists and business travelers arrive in San Francisco, and each of them must choose how to get around. Many will rent cars, many will take BART and Muni, and still others will take taxis, Uber, or Lyft. Yet if these visitors want to make bicycling their primary mode of transportation for their visit, there are currently very few options available. Bay Area Bike Share is optimized for trips of less than 30 minutes, and traditional bike rental becomes prohibitively expensive over a period of days or weeks. With rentals from $109 per week and $199 per month, we exist to meet that unmet need.
“While many bike rental outlets exist to rent a bike for a day or two, our customer is different,” said PedalAnywhere founder Lucas Nivon. “They are visiting San Francisco and they bike commute at home, or they want more from a bike rental than either the short trips of Bay Area Bike Share or the tourist-friendly rentals at Fisherman’s Wharf.”
“Our customers simply want to bike like a local from the day they arrive to the day they leave,” says Treat Street Bicycle Works owner Ben Smith. “We’re excited to partner with PedalAnywhere to serve this new market by offering high-quality bikes from a few days to a few months at low prices.”
