Bike Rentals

The staff of Lizard Head Cycling Guides will do their very best to fulfill specific bike model, and component request but, due to the dynamic nature of our bike fleet allocation and the purchase of rental bikes by guests throughout the season, can not guarantee specific bikes or requests.

In the event a guest damages their rental bike, they will be reposible for all cost associated with restoring the bike to it’s originally rented condition. Such costs ARE NOT included in the cost of the rental bike. Lizard Head Cycling Guides reserves the right to charge the card on file for the cost of repair.

Each participant on the tour renting a bike is required to fill out Lizard Head Cycling Guides’ bike rental release. Liability forms will be available at the pre-tour meeting but can be reviewed ahead of time by clicking on the link below.

Custom vs. Private (Closed) Tours and Minimum Pricing

Custom Tour – A unique tour date and/or itinerary which may be offered to additional guest outside of the original organizers.

Private Tour – Can be a standard tour offering or a unique tour date and/or itinerary which is reserved specifically for the guests who book it and is closed to anyone outside of the group.

Tour Minimum Pricing – Is used to give guests the opportunity to go forward with a specific tour which has low enrollment. It is essentially the cost that must be charged by Lizard Head Cycling Guides to break even. Guests who have signed up for a tour date with low enrollment may opt to pay tour minimum pricing to ensure tour is a go.

Example: If the tour minimum for the Glacier National Park Tour is 6 riders and the cost of the tour $2,800. 4 riders can ensure the tour is a go by paying $4,200 each.

Tour A-Go or No-Go Decision and Minimum Enrollment

If at 60 days prior to tour start the trip minimum has not been reached, guests will be notified and may elect to utilize tour minimum pricing. If guests do not wish to pay tour minimum pricing, all monies may be transferred to a different tour or can be refunded in full. Lizard Head Cycling Guides will not be responsible for the cost of airfare or other travel arrangements. We strongly recommend purchasing “Cancel for Any Reason” Tour insurance to cover such costs.
