If inclement weather (rain and/or thunder and lightning) is forecast for tour time, you will receive notice of tour cancellation from you tour guide no later than 7:30 a.m. on the morning of the tour. In most cases, we will make that call the evening before the tour and send the cancellation notice out then.

Participants should be at least 13 years of age, comfortable riding a bike, knowledgeable of basic cycling etiquette and rules of the road, and capable of completing a 9-miile trip over relatively flat terrain (there are a few small hills). Keep in mind, this is a leisurely tour, not a vigorous training ride.

What should I bring/wear?

Riders should bring a multi-gear bicycle in good working condition, wear comfortable clothing and shoes, wear a helmet, and bring along a water bottle and any snacks you’d like during the tour. As a reminder, helmets are required by law for participants 16 years of age or under and we strongly encourage all participants to wear a helmet.
