Because of the layout and distance of this ride we may not have time to wait for riders who have issues with navigation, physical endurance, battery life or mechanical failure. If needed we can look or wait for you but not more than once or twice. In most cases we can pitch in and fix a flat tire or loose chain for you. But for anything else you might need to get non-EBIKETREKS assistance. So make sure your bike is in tiptop shape and fully charges and be prepared in advance for a friend or loved one to drive up and provide assistance if you continue to get stuck or lost. Sorry, but the trip leaders are NOT responsible for getting you home safely.]
    This trip is hella cool, as my granddaddy used to say. It has a ferry boat ride (buy tickets online), panoramic views of the Bay Area shorelines, sandy beaches (swimming!), and the chance to preview some island campsites for future ebike camping.
    Be sure to bring your BIKE LOCK.
