What Is Not Included?

This is a RENTAL/SELF-GUIDED TOUR ONLY, so you will not be accompanied by a tour guide.  For your own comfort, you might consider bringing a bottle of water or a sports drink and snacks. While we keep our tires and bikes in tiptop shape, flats happen. Flat kits are included for no additional charge. Just ask when you pick up the bike. If you do not take a kit and get a flat, we can direct you to the nearest bike shop where you can get the flat fixed.  We do not offer a pick-up service for broken bicycles. Please be careful while riding and shifting.
