Mountain Bike Demos

Today's mountain bikes are truly amazing, and a significant investment. We're big believers in giving customers an opportunity to demo prior to purchase.  We keep a deep fleet of demo bikes from Yeti, Transition, Giant, Niner, and Orbea, and you can launch your ride straight out our door.  Given the gravity of a new bike purchase, we like to make all demo reservations in person or over the phone to make sure we're setting you up for the best experience possible.  Demo fee is $100 for up to 24 hours and can be applied to a bike purchase from us.

TOURS AND PRICES

1/2 Day Marin County 

Marin is considered the birth place of mountain biking.  Let us craft a 1/2 day ride for you or your group, tailored to your liking - novice to expert and everything in between. 

$150 - $250 per person

Sonoma County Full Day 

To be candid, mountain biking in wine country is better than the wine.  More of an intermediate to advanced ride, with engaging trails, rocks, and roots to challenge you. Travel time to trail: 60 minutes.

$175 - $300 per person

So...How Does This Tour Thing Work?

Ideally, we like to start and end tours from The Lodge, or our SF store.  This allows us to set up your demo bike under ideal conditions, and make sure you have everything you need before we hit the trail.  Taking time to set fork and shock pressure, tire pressure, and fit, make a big difference. We have helmets, and most popular clip in pedals, as well as platform pedals.  Once the bikes are dialed, we'll load in our van and go.  Travel time to the trail head varies from 45 to 90 minutes (unless we're leaving from The Lodge).  Time permitting, we prefer to have a post ride libation.  We are flexible on timing, and try our best to schedule your tour around your schedule. More questions? Call or e-mail us - we love to talk about riding.

Santa Cruz Full Day Adventure

Santa Cruz is probably our favorite place to ride.  Just up from the Pacific Ocean, lie dense Redwood forests with twisty, loamy, flowy goodness to explore by bike.  Travel time to trail: 90-120 minutes.

$250 - $395 per person

Believe it or not, SF has breathtaking off road riding.  Granted, you have to mix it in with some pavement, but it makes for a special adventure, right out our City shop's front door.
