What is required to take an e-bike tour?

 

All renters must wear a helmet at all times while they are riding the bike.

Our suggested minimum height is 5 feet tall and weight limit is 350 lbs.

While no experience riding an electric bike is necessary, guests must have a basic level of fitness and be able to confidently ride a standard bike. If it has been a while since you’ve been on a bike, we highly recommend you practice, even just once, before your tour. Stop by Pedego Electric Bikes at 185 Townsend Avenue for a test ride in our large parking lot.

Your safety is our priority, and if you don’t feel comfortable riding your electric bike at the start of your tour, we’ll offer you a full refund.

 

What is your tour cancellation policy?

 

Cancel up to 48 hours in advance for a FULL refund. We ask for 48-hour notice so that we may open up the tour to other people who want to ride/walk.

We will cancel tours if there are dangerous weather conditions, but we will ride/walk if there is a chance of inclement weather.

For cancellations due to inclement weather, we will issue a 100% refund or allow you to reschedule for another time that works for you. In the case of bad weather, our guide will contact you at least one hour before the start time to discuss your options.

If there is light rain in the forecast but none at the start of the tour, we will decide together at the time of the tour whether to ride/walk.
