Does bad weather prevent us from riding?
Weather is no problem for us, our large awning keeps guests dry. We have never missed a trip due to rain. The only weather exceptions are: lightning, strong winds, & snow and ice on the ground in the winter.
If severe weather does occur, which would make going on the boat dangerous, Buffalo Pedal Tours reserves the right to cancel the tour and offer the renter a rescheduled trip or a refund.
What if our pub crawl tour takes too long?
We are very good at getting back in time for the next group. The guide will tell you when to get back on the bike. If your group does not comply the tour renter will have a late fee applied to their credit card.
You will be charged for any damage to the pedal bike during your trip. DO NOT sit or stand on the fenders, bounce on the seats or slam the tambourines. The tour renter will have the cost of the damage applied to their credit card.

A. The guide/driver.
