Dress to impress, as everyone will looking at you as you go past. Flat, enclosed shores are recommended – NO high heels or thongs/flip-flops (for your safety and comfort). Remember to dress for the weather – we have plenty of storage should you choose to bring a jacket or you need to shed some layers or you wish to bring a change of shoes.

Do I need to wear a helmet?

No but all participants must sign a waiver (Download Ride Waiver) – please download, print out, sign and hand to driver on the day of your tour.

Is pedalling difficult?

No – Glenelg is very flat so there are no inclines that can wear you out.  The light design & low gearing means minimal effort to get moving, however if the bike is full (16 passengers) pedalling can be more difficult due to extra weight.
