What direction do most people ride?

It depends on a few variables, we generally advise people to finish the ride at your car, that way, you do not complete a 40-mile day and still have to wait for a shuttle or endure a long ride back to your car. 

Parking your vehicle at Cumberland is always a good option because its free, no traffic easy in and out and on your last day, you get to enjoy the 25miles of downhill ride from Deal to Cumberland.

However, if you live closer to Pittsburg, it may make more sense to finish in Pittsburgh, and have a shorter drive home. Either way has its benefits.

What is your cancelation policy?

All cancelations incur a $50 reservation fee. For any cancellation up to 5 days before the scheduled shuttle, your fare is refunded. After 5 days, 50% is refunded. contact the shop for more information.

Where do we get picked up for the shuttle?

The easiest place to pick up is at the shop at Canal place, however, we are flexible and happy to pick customers at their Air BNB, hotel room or a different location. Ensure that this is arranged with us and confirm this when you receive your reservation notice.

How do I know you have not forgotten about me?

You will receive a confirmation email once the reservation is made; you will also receive a reminder email 2 days before your appointment and finally a few hours before the scheduled appointment. You can also always contact the shop directly to confirm.

Is there a set time for shuttles?

All shuttles are scheduled according to the requested times of the guests. We do not run on a set schedule. Let us know the time you want to travel, and we work to accomodate that.

How do you transport the bikes?

Depending on the size of the group and the vehicle in our fleet which is appropriate, for small groups, we use a hitch bike rack, roof rack or a combination of both.

For more cumbersome bikes, we are able to put bikes inside our big van or pull an enclosed trailer. Using a trailer brings additional cost.

Where do you drop off or pick up in Pittsburg?

We drop off of pick up anywhere within a 3 mile radius of Point State park. As long as it is close to Downtown, we can drop or pick up there. The only caveat is if the ride requires us to pull a trailer.

It is typically best for clients to ride down to Point State park and we can pick them up there.

Where do you drop off or pick up in Washington DC?

We drop off or pick up from Thompson Boat Center in Georgetown. This is next to Mile 0 of the C&O (2900 Virginia Ave NW, Washington, DC 20037). Sometimes we a re able to drop off and pick up at other locations, however, this is usually challanging due to traffic and other factors.
