When selecting an adult bicycle, you will have the option to add a 24-inch bicycle, a tag-a-long, a 20-inch bicycle, or a child's seat attachment.
We have had countless families and children of all ages on our bike tours. It's a great way to burn a little energy, take in the fresh air and spend time outdoors. All of our tours get off the beaten path and onto side roads, into gardens, parks, and forts. We know the safest path to make our way through town to ensure the safety of our riders and their children. If you have a question about safety, please call us. 603-969-1866. If you are unsure about riding with others, we offer private tours where we can go with the flow. Sometimes, we will need to pause to toss rocks into the river or stop for ice cream and other times all goes as planned.
For children uncomfortable riding on their own, our tag-a-long rides comfortably behind their parents up to 8 years old or 70lbs, we have tag-along tandem bicycles for children 4'0 - 4'8 feet. The child passenger sits on a seat and can pedal or coast. This is not an option for adults or anyone over the weight or age limit. The bicycle acts just like a regular bike with a 20-inch wheel, handlebars, seat, and pedals.
Toddler's Seat (1-seat)
We love families with small children! Please be an experienced rider with a child seat. We can accommodate toddler's with a frame-mounted rear bike seat. The seat has a harness, leg restraints, and a padded crossbar for added safety. If you're looking for a baby bike seat for an infant, be cautious. In addition to other safety concerns, a baby needs to have sufficient neck strength to hold up their head while wearing a helmet. We recommend waiting until 12 months old. Our toddler seat can accommodate children up to 40 pounds only.
Children's 20-Inch (2 - bikes)
A 20-inch bike is good for children that are 4'0” to 4'5” kids or 121 to 136cm and need to have about 22-25 inches (55-63 cm) inseam lengths. Ideal for those children ages 7 to 8 years. Brake: Easy-to-use coaster brake, simply pedal back to stop. We also have a 20-inch 14-speed with hand brakes.
Children's 24-Inch (1 - bike)
A 24-inch bike is good for children that are 4'5" - 5'1" or a 135cm - 145cm and need to have about a 24" - 28" inseem ( 60cm - 72cm. Ideal for those children 21-Speed for ages 9 to 11 years. Brake: Easy-to-use hand brakes.

PortCity Bike Tours has tag-a-long bicycles and an infant seat that is all easily attached. Bring the whole family on the guided bicycle tour. Kids just pay for the attachment and adults pay for the tour that includes a multi-speed comfort bike, helmet, and water.
Our Rail Trail Bike Tour is the perfect tour for families who do not want to ride entirely on city streets. You can also book a private tour.
Please call 603-969-1866 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We reserve the right to change a 20-inch bike to a tag-a-long if we believe the child will be safer. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
If you're unsure about your 6-9-year-old and up to 70 pounds, please choose the tag-a-long. It's basically a bicycle with the front wheel missing and the parent or guardian has full control.
