- How long is the tour?
Most tours are around 2.5-3 hours and 5-8 miles. Custom tours can be as short or long as designed.
Where do we start?
All tours start at 31 Washington St. The driveway is marked by our logo on the black mailbox. We are across the street from the Maria Mitchell aquarium. It’s a 3.2 minute walk from Main St; we timed it!
What is included with each tour?
With each bike tour you will be provided a bike, helmet, water bottle, and an energetic knowledgeable guide! If you already have your bike, that’s okay too! We will subtract the cost off your total.
Can I rent a bike from you?
We use our bikes for the guided tours only. If you would like to have a bike longer than our tour, we suggest renting one from one of the local bike shops, we suggest two here on our website.
Do you have apparel for sale?
Yes! We have our “Ride Bikes. Do Good” shirts and other merchandise for sale down the street at our sister company, the Handlebar Cafe.
What level of biking experience is necessary to ride?
All levels of biking experience are welcome on our tours as they are fun and easy going.
Can my kids come?
Yes and no. It depends on the age and which tour. Please call or email to make sure your children will be comfortable on our tours.
What should I bring?
You should bring your camera and a rain jacket (if there’s a chance). There will be lots of stops to take pictures of beautiful landscapes, historic houses, hidden gardens and ponds, and other moments that you won’t want to miss. We’ll take care of the rest!
How can I made arrangements for a larger group tour?
Give us a call and we will design a tour that will satisfy your group’s needs.
Should I tip my tour guide?
Not required at all. Gratuity is not included in the price of your ticket. While it is not expected, it is greatly appreciated.
How many people will be in my bike tour group?
We like to keep the tours small so everyone can enjoy all there is to offer! Our sweet spot is 10-12 people. We max out the capacity at 15 people. The larger the group the more tour guides will be added for your enjoyment and safety. If you’d like to do a private tour, give us a call!
I have my own bike, can I still take a tour?
Yes! This is common because a lot of people will have a bike for an extended period of time and will not need to rent another one. We reserve the right to refuse any bike that we believe does not meet our safety standards.
Oh no! It’s raining. Do we still ride?
We ride rain or shine! The activity runs regardless of weather conditions. In the case of dangerous weather conditions, we may cancel the tour.
Umm, I changed my mind, can I get my money back?
Unfortunately changing your mind or not showing up on time will not get your money back in your pocket. Our tours are non-refundable and can be rescheduled with 48 hours notice. In the rare situation where the seller is forced to cancel the event prior to departure, ticket-holders will be allowed to reschedule tickets (subject to availability), receive credit for a future event, or receive a full refund.
