2nd time I have hired a bike from Mellow Velos. They were extremely helpful and accommodated me with a bike when it seemed that one was not available. Excellent quality, personal service and a pleasure to hire from. Highly recommended.

We arrived without a reservation and Vince and Sandra took great care of us. Bikes were clean and well maintained. Very knowledgeable and provided options for routes, lunch stops, and provided clear and printed instructions. Very friendly and customer service oriented. Highly recommend!
