    Skill Level & Safety

    We characterize this tour as moderate. Physically this ride is easy.

    Moderate = you should be confident and comfortable riding a bike with good balance and bike handling skills. Don’t worry, our bikes are easy to ride and we give you plenty of time to get comfortable before departing.

    Notes about this tour and why it’s moderate: the ride requires that you navigate several hills, some of which are steep. Our bikes are well suited and safe for this terrain. The ride also follows quiet back roads and official bike routes the entire time, but you will have to share the road with cars at times.

    Safety: We take safety seriously. There is an extensive pre-ride safety briefing and we provide the best quality helmets.

    Questions: If you have any questions about the difficulty of this tour or if it’s right for you, please contact us, we’re happy to help!

    PS If you’ve never ridden an electric bike or it’s been a while since you’ve biked we recommend a spin on SF’s electric bike share. It’s also a fun way to get to our shop!
