Is there a minimum number of riders required for booking?
Our Downtown Phoenix Art & Mural Bike Tours require a minimum of two guests. You may book as an individual, but please know that we may need to get in touch with you on the rare occasion that we don't have the required number of guests. We will offer the opportunity to change the date or can process a refund.
Can I use my own bike on the tour?
In order to keep the bike tours running smoothly, we only use bikes from the Grid Bike Share Program on our tour. There are many bike-share hubs along our route, allowing the opportunity to quickly and easily switch out a bike if needed.
Is there an age restriction on the tour?
You must be at least 16 years of age to participate and to check out a Grid Bike. The bikes will generally accommodate those that are 5'0" to 6'3" in height.
Is it safe to ride a bike in Phoenix?
We take safety very seriously and make sure that our tours will take you on the safest bike routes. We also provide safety instructions before each tour.
Do I need to be in good physical shape to ride on the tour?
Our Downtown Phoenix Art & Mural Bike Tours require basic riding ability, and you should be comfortable on a bike. The ride will be conducted at a relaxed pace of 8-10 MPH. There will be several stops along the tour, and we make every effort to cater to the slowest rider in the group. However, we do need to keep our time schedule.
Am I required to sign a waiver/release of liability?
Yes. All individuals participating in a bike tour with Phoenix Rising Tour Company must sign a release of liability, which will be supplied before the tour. If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian must sign for you.
What should I wear, and what should I bring?
Please bring a bottle of water (two during the warmer months) along with a bag to hold them in the bike basket, as they are not completely enclosed. Wear comfortable clothing, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Close-toed shoes are mandatory, as are helmets (please see question below).
Am I required to wear a helmet?
Yes. All participants must wear a helmet. You may bring your own or use one of ours, which is included in the tour cost. We provide helmet liners and sanitize after each use.
