Do I have to have lights?
State law requires cyclists to have front and rear lights when riding at night. We'll provide you with both as part of your rental.
Do I need experience?

Please ensure that you are properly prepared for the riding you are going to undertake, with a good level of fitness and off road cross-county riding experience is essential.

Travel insurance is essential, with additional cover for Mountain Biking for five days or more, for cross-county riding, on off road tracks that are non-specific mtb trails.
What do I do with the bike overnight?
Bikes like to sleep indoors, just like people. If you're staying in a hotel, check with the bellhop, concierge, or reception to find out if you can take your bike to your room or if they want to keep it in their luggage room. Keeping the bike indoors overnight is the best way to avoid potential damage or theft.

Just keep cycling! You pay your rent on return, so you can keep the bike until you are done with it, unless you have decided to extend for longer than a week. By the way: long-term renters get a better rate.

Yes, we do. Groups of 10 persons get a 20% reduction when they pay all together. For longer periods than 2 weeks we offer special rates. Please contact us for details.
