We are CLOSED for the month of November and we re-open on December 1st operating from 9:30am to 4:30pm. We have 4 BIG DEALS to offer customers starting December 1st until the end of February … just in case anyone needs a little extra encouragement to get on a bicycle.
Our guided tours continue to be intimate group sizes of 2-8 people and, based on the feedback from our enthusiastic customers – we are the top bike tour company in town on Trip Advisor – we will just keep on doing what we do, all year long.
