*READ CAREFULLY* Deposits, Payment, Reservations, Cancellation and Refund Policy:

We accept cash and all major credit cards for payment.
Late returns are subject to additional charges and late fees.
Damaged equipment is subject to repair costs as determined by Minneapolis By Bike.
If the rental period is extended, the undersigned authorizes Minneapolis By Bike to charge the credit card on file for monies due without the cardholder present.
If the bicycle(s) is returned in the condition in which it was lent, your account will only be charged the rental costs.
If the bicycle(s) is returned in with damages, your account will be charged for the damages incurred during the rental period.
Once the rider(s) agrees to the riding terms, is fitted and receives riding instructions, signs the rider agreement, and departs on the bike, no refunds will be issued.

If the bicycle(s) is stolen, your account will be charged $500 per stolen bike.

Cancellation Policy

If you cancel your tour or rental with more than 24 hours advance notice, we will provide a full refund of your cost. If you cancel your tour or rental with less than 24 hours notice, a $20.00 cancellation fee will be held. If you do not arrive to the tour prior to departure time, you will not be refunded your tour. You may reschedule your tour upon arrival or call to reschedule. If you are unable to reschedule you may use your retained payment towards a bike rental or a Self-Guided Tour (as bike availability allows).


Full refunds, prior to departure, are offered due to rain for both tours and rentals.

Weather Policy

Due to some of our equipment, in heavy rain, tours cannot be provided. During light rain, tours are possible. However, if it is raining within an hour before the tour and you would like to cancel the tour, we will offer a full refund. If you would like to wait to see if the rain dies down, we can wait up to an hour after original start time and provide the tour if it does stop raining an hour later. If it rains during our tour and the group desires to call it quits, participants will be charged based on the amount of time they participated in the tour.
