Rental Bike Insurance:
Bike insurance is available for $15.00 flat rate for Multi-Day Tours and is automatically included in with all Day Tours. Insurance covers PARTS/FRAME replacement on 1 bike up to $500.00 (wholesale cost). Insurance covers damages incurred only while riding and does not cover complete bike replacement due to negligence while in transport, theft, a catastrophic crash or acts of God. Insurance must be purchased prior to your tour. If you decline rental bike insurance you are responsbile for the cost of any damages incurred while the bike is in your possession.
Using your own bike:
If you are bringing your own bike we strongly recommend you have your bike checked out by a reputable bike shop prior to departure. Have your bike tuned up and any worn-out parts replaced. Most bikes now have proprietary parts such as the derailleur hanger and we can't guarantee that our spare parts will be compatible for your bike. We highly recommend traveling with a spare derailleur hanger and other specialty items your bike may require for minor repairs. We carry a spare bike on multi-day tours.
You may ship your bike ahead of time to Rim Tours. Please make these arrangements with our office before you arrive. Make sure your name and the tour that you are scheduled for are written clearly on the label along with "Please Build" or "Please Hold". Rim Tours can also do the tune-up.
The tune-up charge will depend on the amount of work needed. Our assembly fee is $40 or $80 if we disassemble and box it up at the end of the trip as well. The shipping fees will be extra.
Camping Gear Rentals:
Sierra Designs, Black Diamond and Big Agnes tents, Sierra Designs sleeping bags, and Therm-a-Rest ground pads are available to rent. Tents rent for, depending on the size, either $35 or $45 per tour. A sleeping bag is $30 per tour. A ground pad is $10 per tour. If you need all three items for your tour, the cost is $65 for one person; $120 for two persons (using a 3-person tent.)
