      Flying to San Fran in a couple of weeks and looking for a place to rent mountain bikes and suggestions for a premier "do not miss" trail… We are intermediate riders who ride primarily in the southeast near Asheville and North Georgia. Can anybody recommend a mountain range or national or state parks, say within 4 hours?? There looks to be a zillion trails on singletracks… hard to figure out the best one (s). Thanks!!

      Last time I visited San Francisco and rented a mtb, I used Bike and Roll – San Francisco.

      They had a good selection of mtbs, including a decent FS, trail bike (Gary Fisher Roscoe), which was my choice. The employees did a very good job of fitting me and adjusting the cock-pit for comfort.
      As for a ride, my brother-in-law and I rode across the Golden Gate Bridge and rode the Tennessee Loops in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Not very technical, but great views, and plenty of climbing!

      How far are you willing to drive for good trails?

      Here are a few great ones I was just out there a few weeks back and rode all of these, and more, but these were some of the best:

      Marin county:
      http://www.singletracks.com/bike-trails … ancho.html
      http://www.singletracks.com/bike-trails/china-camp.html (pretty near camp tam, not as good, but you could easily ride both of these in the same day).

      South:

      There’s a ton of riding here. You can do a really long day in the saddle, or several days of shorter rides.

      Even further south:

      One of the best trails in the greater bay area. Tons of jumps and drops, but they can all be bypassed if you’re not into that thing. Still, even if you bypass the stunts, the trails are pretty steep and technical.
