Rental Terms


Participants must read and sign the waiver form prior to rental.

Security Deposit

We require a security deposit on all equipment rented.  A security deposit can be taken by debit or credit card authorization. (Credit card will not be charged unless equipment is not returned.)

Age Restrictions

The renter must be 18 years of age or older to rent equipment and present a valid driver’s license or passport.  Younger participants must have a parent or legal guardian present.


For the renter’s safety, a helmet is provided and renters under 18 years old must wear a properly fitted helmet at all times.


Participants are responsible for the rental equipment, from the time the equipment is rented until the time it is returned including damage and theft of rental equipment.

Riding Rules

Renters must agree to follow all traffic laws, signs, rules, and regulations while riding.  We ask renters to not use cellular telephones or operate cameras while riding due to the disruption to concentration it may cause.

Returning Equipment

Please return your equipment 15 minutes before closing time in order to allow time for check out. We typically close at 6 pm in the spring and fall and at 7 pm in the summer; please take note of our closing time before you depart. If you are having so much fun you’d like to keep the bikes overnight, please call us to let us know; we’d be happy to make arrangements for a longer rental.
