Hi Brittany, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. I am deeply sorry that your experience with us was less than exceptional. Customer service is very important to us and we expect better of our staff and want each and every one of our customers to have a fun and hassle-free ride. I will be passing your comments on to management so we can make sure our staff is properly trained in our bike orientation. We are here to help troubleshoot any problem and apologize about your gear troubles. Please know in the future we are more than happy to swap out bikes that need maintenance. I do however want to assure you that we send our California Sunset Tour participants out with lights mounted on the handlebars. I am sorry to know that your guide didn’t turn them on for you. Safety is very important to us and I apologize again that we didn’t meet your expectations. I am glad to hear that you did enjoy your guide and bike tour even with your technical difficulties. Please know we are continually trying to improve our service, and your feedback helps us do so. Thank you for choosing Bay City Bike Thank you, Ashley

Great tour! Adam was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable about the city. We made stops at different points to learn about the city, rest, and take photos. He made safety a priority. Took about three hours. Would definitely do again and absolutely recommend.
