4. Discussion on Courses

Tell us about your preferences for courses, such as if you like a steep climb or not, if you like hidden roads or not.  Also, tell us about rides that you regularly do.  Then, we can recommend courses you may want to try.  We can draw a course in ridewithgps.com.  You can download the course and install it to a Garmin or other GPS device.

 

5. Communication before the day of rental

One day before the ride, we will give you an e-mail to discuss the weather.  If you wish to cancel due to bad weather forecast, please tell us so. We will refund 100% of the booking fee for an cancelation because of bad weather.
