How fit do I need to be?

  • Although the electric bikes will take all of the hard work out of your ride it is not a regular bike. It is heavier and can be tricky to get used to at first. The main requirement is that you be coordinated and fit enough to balance a 60 pound bike while standing.

  • Riders must have the physical coordination, reaction, and mental capabilities to control a bicycle and manage traffic, in addition to managing road conditions and sudden situations with respect to

    the laws and instructions governing bicycle use.

  • Persons with any mental or physical conditions that may make them susceptible to injury, impair their physical dexterity or mental capabilities to recognize, understand, and follow safety instructions—or understand

    the hazards inherent to its use will be evaluated on a case to case basis.

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, the main purchaser will get a text with a link to a customer portal where 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.
