Rental Terms

  • Participants must read and sign the Release from Liability Agreement prior to rental.
  • A credit card and valid driver’s license or passport is required for rental deposit. Your credit card must be authorized by your bank as a deposit in the amount of $200 per bike ($400 performance road bike) and $50 for a bike rack.  Upon return of the rental items in good condition, we charge your credit card for the rental amount only; the deposit hold is released by us. NOTE: the Customer’s credit card company determines when the hold on funds is released; this is typically 2-7 days.
  • The renter must be 18 years of age or older to rent equipment. Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present to sign the Release from Liability for them. Children must be at least 1 year old, be able to sit up, hold their head up, and be able to wear a helmet.
  • Helmets and U-locks are provided for free with each rental. Helmets are required for all participants under the age of 18.
  • Bikes must be properly locked whenever they are not in the control of the renter. Participants are responsible for the rental equipment, from the time the equipment is rented until the time it is returned, including damage and theft of rental equipment.
  • Late returns are subject to overtime charges and late fees.
  • Participants must comply with all traffic laws and ride with caution. In California, bikes follow the same rules, regulations and responsibilities as do automobiles.  Please–no cameras and cell phones while riding; it’s just an unsafe thing to do.
  • For all bike rentals, a bike tube, pump, lock, handlebar or seat bag and local map will be provided. We’re also happy to share some tips on good trails, scenic routes and other cycling information. We have a few of our favorite rides posted on our website.
  • Bikes may NOT be taken to Burning Man; this will require a mandatory $250 cleaning.
  • Please return your equipment 15 minutes before closing time in order to allow time for check out. If you are having so much fun you’d like to keep the bikes overnight, please call us to let us know; we’d be happy to make arrangements for a longer rental. NEVER leave a bike locked outside overnight, as this is likely to bring a sad end to your wonderful bike riding experience.

Please review this Rental Agreement & Waiver, which you’ll be asked to sign when you pick up your rental.
