BIKES

Hybrid-Fitness

The cycling position is comfortable and semi-upright. These and similar electric bikes are the rental bicycles we recommend and supply for most riders. We use Trek FX2 or equivalent, and all sizes, including children’s, are available. They come equipped with water bottle, odometer, rear rack, trunk bag, high visibility vest, lock, pump, patch kit, and spare inner tube.

Carbon-Racing

Racing-style bicycles, with drop handlebars and brake lever shifters, these are fast, agile bikes. Most of our fleet is comprised of Trek Madone, Domane, or Emonda road bikes with full Shimano 105 components. Carbon racing bikes have a saddle bag only and are not suitable for a rear rack, or carrying a load. For that, please Aluminum Racing Bikes, or Hybrid-Fitness Bikes.

Trailer Bikes: Attach one to the back of any adult’s bike to turn it into a tandem suitable for children up to 4’ tall. They can assist you by pedalling, or can simply freewheel as you do all the work. They have no directional or braking control.

INCLUDED WITH EVERY BIKE RENTAL

 


KAYAKS

Single Kayak

Our 17ft long, 23″ wide single kayaks easily accommodate most adult paddlers and can carry expedition gear. The bow and stern hatches have large openings, and the bulkheads provide ample flotation. Rudders make directional control easy. High initial stability, excellent glide and outstanding acceleration contribute to their safety margin.

Tandem Kayak

This tandem sea kayak is unlike anything else available. Stable yet roomy, it features three bulkheads and two large hatches, a foot-controlled rudder, comfortable seats and generous deck lines. Designed for longer trips, it is a less tippy choice for two, and at least as fast as a single kayak when paddled well.
