Bike rental rates for hybrid and fat (tire) bikes are $35 for two hours, $65 daily, $100 for two days and $325 weekly. Electric bikes, with speeds up to 25 mph, rent for $45 for two hours or $125 for 24 hours.

The group rides are scheduled for most Saturdays, year-round, weather and schedule permitting.
