Frequently Asked Questions About our Glasgow Cycling Tours

Answering your questions about Glasgow Bike Tours

We want to be as helpful as possible and to answer any common questions you might have about our range of bike tours in Glasgow. You’ll find the most frequently asked questions below (and the answers) – but if your question isn’t on the list, please feel free to contact us directly.

Where do we meet at the start of the tour?

We meet at Drygate Brewing Co., 85 Drygate. Glasgow. G4 0UT, which is a 12-minute walk from George Square in Glasgow city centre. See our Where We Meet page for more info.

Are your Glasgow bike tours difficult?

No, they aren’t difficult. We offer several different Glasgow cycling tours and they all use waterways and cycling paths that are, for the most part, completely flat. There are a couple of hills, but we avoid all of Glasgow’s steepest hills.

Do I need an e-bike?

Our advice is that unless you are injured or have a disability you will not need an e-bike, as the routes are mostly flat. If you decide an e-bike is essential, please get in touch and we can advise how to find one, as we don’t stock them ourselves.

What height do I/my child need to be?

Our small frame bikes will accommodate people of around 4’10″/147cm in height and upwards. The bikes have step through frames, so a shorter rider can step down to start and stop.

Do you provide the bikes and helmets?

Yes we provide a pedal bike and helmet. However, you are not obliged to wear helmets in Scotland, so the choice is yours. if you need an e-bike please get in touch.

When should I arrive for my bike tour?

We ask all clients to arrive no later than 10 minutes before their scheduled tour.

Do I need to reserve a place on a bike tour?

Yes, as spaces are limited, so you should always get in touch prior to a tour.

What number should I call if I am lost or late?

Please call +44 (0) 7786 683445 and we will be happy to help with directions to our meeting point. We will do our best to wait, but there are other people on a schedule to consider, so please be on time as we can only wait for around 10 minutes.

What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellations made more than 72 hours before your tour, will be eligible for a 100% refund (minus any 3rd party outlays). Cancellations made more than 24 hours before your tour, will be eligible for a 50% refund. Cancellations made within 24 hours of your tour, will not be eligible for a refund. If you miss your tour for any reason, we will try to re-schedule you on to another existing tour.

What happens if it rains?

We run the tours in all kinds of weather – unless it would be dangerous to do so. Remember to bring a waterproof with you, just in case.

Is there somewhere to leave bags or luggage?

You are welcome to leave bags with us in our locked store, but this is done at your own risk. Otherwise, bring only what you can carry on your person, to avoid contact with moving parts of the bike.

Can I bring my own bike on the tour?

Yes, you can, and there is even a £5 discount if you do!
