Private Group Tours and Rentals


Deposit in the amount of half of the total can be made upon receipt of invoice in order to secure the date and time. Number of riders, heights and balance must be submitted at least 5 days prior to the date of tour. No refunds will be issued for riders who do not participate after payment is made.



In the event of a group cancellation after payment is made, a refund will be issued less a 20% fee. No refunds will be issued if cancelled within 24 hours of the tour. Tours can be rescheduled, at no charge, based on availability.



Tours will proceed in light rain, fog, overcast conditions or cooler temps.  Riders should dress accordingly. Tours may be cancelled in more inclement weather conditions at the discretion of Golden Triangle Bike Rental. If a tour cannot be rescheduled due to weather, a full refund will be issued.


If the group has provided rider height information prior to the tour, the bikes, helmets and gear will be waiting and ready to roll.  In this scenario the fitting and prep process can take 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the group.  If heights are not provided, this process will likely take a minimum of ½ hour.  


Golden Triangle Bike can be printed and signed prior to arrival.  Print the waiver here.  Otherwise waivers will be signed upon arrival.


Helmets are required for all group tours and rentals


Any participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult or legal guardian.
