Can you accommodate large groups?

  • At this time, we are taking groups of up to six individuals on a tour, if you have a private group you can book all six bikes and do a self guided tour and it would be considered a rental. 

How fit do I need to be?

  • The electric bikes will take all of the hard work out of your ride. Riders can span the spectrum of age and fitness. The main requirement is that you be coordinated and fit enough to balance a 60-pound bike while standing.

I’m not an experienced cyclist. Can I take this tour?

  • We provide instructions and a short practice ride before every tour. If a rider is not able to balance or complete the practice ride confidently, that they accept a full refund and sit out the tour.

Are your tours safe?

  • Absolutely! We take every possible safety precaution before, during, and after the ride. Our bikes are bright and very visible on the road, and we provide helmets to all riders. Some of our bikes have flags on them and you can choose to wear a reflective vest. We take care of our bikes and inspect them before and after every ride. We also provide instructions and a short practice ride before every tour, along with a quick review of bike laws and signals. If a rider is not able to balance or complete a test ride confidently, they will be asked to accept a full refund and sit out the tour. 

Do I have to sign a waiver?

  • Yes, a waiver will be provided, and all riders must sign it before heading out on their tour. All customers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and that adult must sign for them. Once your booking is made, you will receive an email asking you to sign a waiver before your tour. Or you can wait and sign the waiver on location.

What happens if it rains on the day of my tour?

  • We offer a 100% refund if a tour is canceled due to rain. If there is light rain in the forecast but none at the start of the tour, we will decide together at the time of the tour whether to ride. We will provide rain ponchos and rain covers for the storage bags on the bikes to protect your belongings.

Will there be bathrooms along the way?

  • Yes. We make several stops during the tour that have bathrooms and there is a public bathroom along the ride. 

Do we go into any of the historic sites?
