Check out our General FAQs
section. Here you will find answers to your general questions.
When Are Your Santa Cruz Bike Day Tours Available?
Year round depending on weather conditions.
Full-suspension rentals can be arranged through one of the local shops. Please call us and we can help arrange rental bike options; please contact us with size, and style/model you are interested in and we’ll do our best to make it work.
What Type of Bike To Bring?
We recommend you bring a solid cross-country or all-mountain bike with you on this trip, with at least 4-6" of travel if possible. All types of mtn bikes will work but full suspension is the best option.
What Is The Weather Going To Be Like?
What you will need to bring depends of course largely on the weather you can expect on your trip. For the most accurate weather please check the Santa Cruz weather online a few days before your trip.
Do we need to tip our guides? If so, what is standard?
Show Your Appreciation - By Tipping Your Guides. Gratuities for guides are not included. The standard industry rate is 5-10% of the trip price, which will be divided between the LGA guide/support team. Please tip at your discretion based on the overall trip experience provided by our team.
