Does the bike tour rides in the streets?
Yes, we are on city streets for the majority of the tour. Our route takes advantage of streets with bike lanes as much as possible, but there are times we will need to share the road with other vehicles. For this reason, we recommend that all riders are confident enough with their biking skills that traffic will not be a problem. Also, younger riders must have enough skill to follow in a single file line behind the guide, so they are not in danger of veering into traffic.
If I am pregnant, can I join the tour?
Unfortunately, due to the risk to both child and mother, pregnant women are not allowed to participate in our bike tours.
