Electric bicycles are a great way to make conquering the Presidio's hills easy and fun. Bay Wheels bike share brings dockless electric bikes to the Presidio, making it easier to explore some of the park’s sometimes steep 25 miles of terrain. Activated through the Lyft app, those over the age of 18 can use the app to find a bike in a safe location and use an e-bike as an option for getting to and around the park.
For the time being, there are no docking stations for the e-bikes in the park; riders can leave the bikes parked at a Presidio bike rack and enjoy their park visit. This exciting new partnership between the Presidio and Bay Wheels is in its first phase of the roll out. It’s currently the only e-bike sharing option in the park.
Check out Bay Wheels’ bike safety primer and remember the three Rs before operating an electric bicycle in the park:
- Road! E-bikes may only be used on roads in the Presidio and are not allowed on trails.
- Rack! When not in use, bicycles must be parked at bike racks – see this
bike rack map
- Respect! Do not leave bikes where they block roads, block access to trails or buildings and take care not to damage park features when locking bikes.
