Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to our most frequently asked tour questions. Don’t hestitate to reach out with further questions. For a full list of tour FAQ, please go here.

Can I bring my kids on the bike tour?
We have individual bikes for children 4’6″ and taller; toddlers and smaller children can ride behind a parent or guardian in trailer carriers or trailer tandems that attach to adult bikes. Children must be able to operate hand brakes and be tall enough (typically 4’5″) to clear the cross bar in order to use their own bike. We reserve the right to switch a child rider to a trailer tandem if they are unable to safely operate their own bike.

What is included and what do I bring?
Bike tours include a comfort bike, helmet, a bottle of water, and a light snack. Segway tours include the Segway rental, helmet, bottle of water, and a light snack. Bring a camera, wear seasonally appropriate clothing (not too loose), and wear closed-toe shoes.

When should I arrive to the tour?
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your tour time (20 minutes prior if you have booked a burley or trailer tandem). Participants arriving after the tour departure time risk forfeiture of their tour seats.

How safe are the bike tours?
Safety is our number one priority. Each bike tour begins with a safety and bike usage talk. The tour route takes place on paths, trails, and sidewalks. We provide helmets (which all tour participants must wear) as well as reflective vests and safety lights on our evening tours.

What if it rains?
We reserve the right to cancel tours for safety concerns such as high winds, thunderstorms, excessive heat/cold, or other severe conditions. For both bike and segway tours, we will provide rain ponchos and go out in light rain. Our Segways are completely waterproof. If we cancel your tour, you may reschedule or request a full refund.

What is your tour cancellation policy?
We reserve the right to cancel any tour. Reservations may be rescheduled at any time, depending on availability. Refunds for cancelled tours are available with 48 hours’ notice. Credit card refunds will be assessed a 10% service fee. Cancellations requested with less than 48 hours notice will be issued a full credit which is fully transferrable and never expires.
