Frequently Asked Questions

Do you rent bicycles for people to take out and use on their own?

No I don't, there are several local bike shops and rental companies that rent bikes for personal use.

Several of the tours indicate that coffee and lunch are available, how does that work?

That can work a couple ways. We always try to plan for a food or drink stop before starting the ride, it's something nice to look forward to. Or, you may decide during the ride that you need to or would like to take a break to better enjoy the rest of the ride and the day. Either way, we often make a stop for food and or a drink but usually not both. Please bring money to make a food or drink purchase if needed.

Do you do special event tours?

Yes, I can plan a tour tailored to your group or event.

Can we meet at our hotel and start the tour from there?

Yes, if your hotel is near the tour route and doesn't add too much distance to the ride we can meet there for the start. If there is a fee for me to park at your hotel you will be responsible to cover that cost. Please ask about this when we plan our meet up.

Is there an age requirement for taking a tour?

Yes, all riders must be 18 years old.

What requirements are there for taking a tour?

You must wear a helmet.
You must sign a waiver of liability.
You must follow the leader's guidance.
This and other information is provided in the Pre-ride Briefing.

What happens if I find the tour too difficult or can't finish for some reason?

I'll make arrangements to get you back to the start. If it's a matter of the ride length or the pace of the ride, it's very easy to make adjustments in-route.

Do you cancel rides because of rain?

Yes, we'll cancel or postpone due to rain. Either you or I can make that decision. If you say cancel we will, and the same here, if I say cancel we will. Postponing is subject to available dates for both of us but either way, if we cancel, there is no charge to you. Something else I've done is to reschedule within the same day when the skies and roads clear.

What kind of bikes will we be riding?

San Marcos touring bikes, made in San Francisco by Soma. They're easy handling road bikes with comfortable tires, drop handlebars and bar-end shifters.
