Our top priority at Get Up and Ride is to ensure safety while having fun. Our Bike Skill Level index is a way for YOU to gauge how comfortable you’ll be riding on any particular tour. The more skill required the more comfortable you should feel riding on city streets. Novice is the easiest followed by Intermediate then Experienced. An Experienced Skill Level generally means you should feel comfortable riding on less bike lanes through more industrial neighborhoods and experiencing a little more traffic on streets with more potholes. Bike lanes and cycling infrastructure have come a long way in the last couple of years but there’s still work to do. Our guides will provide commentary and direction throughout the ride to ensure safety and let you know where we’re going and how we’re going to do it. Still not sure? Contact us and we’ll happily answer any additional questions!
