Our family (mom, dad, 4 young adults ages 17-21) spent 5.5 hours with Keith on the biking and paddling tour. It was one of the highlights of our Northern Michigan vacation. The e bikes were awesome. Our fitness guru in our group chose not to use any assist and got his workout in while I had no qualms using "high assist" on some of those steep hills! Each person could use as much or as little assist as desired and we all enjoyed the ride. We covered about 17 miles on bikes total, stopping first at Tandem Ciders for a tasting there and then 45 North Winery, where lunch was delivered. You can order whatever you like at each stop (you pay, of course) and you place your lunch order (included with the tour) with the bike shop before leaving. They bring it out fresh and the food is delicious (vegetarian option included). We then biked to a beach where we were met with our choice of kayaks or paddle boards. You can give any non-water friendly items to the crew and they will put it in the truck to drive back with them (phones, shoes, etc). The paddle portion is about 1.7 miles on Suttons Bay and while it is pretty calm, it can be a bit of a challenge for those inexperienced with paddle boards. But Keith was amazing through all of it. He often paddled back to the stragglers in our group and made sure everyone was safe and making progress. We never felt rushed with him and enjoyed his stories of local lore and personal tales. The equipment rented to us was top-notch and we were blessed with perfect weather. Some of our group got wet, others did not, so be prepared to potentially swim in the bay on the paddle portion. Bathrooms are available at the bike shop and at both stops (cidery and winery) and water was provided with a souvenir bottle that fit in the bike. A small carrying pouch is also attached to the bikes so you can bring a small purse, sunglasses, etc. Keith took pictures of our group (unprompted) for both the bike portion and during the paddle part, which I so appreciate, and texted them to me at the end of the journey. The tour is not cheap, but if you factor in the equipment and time spent with a private tour guide, we all felt it was worth the splurge. Having someone be our leader mitigated any arguments within our group and kept the harmony flowing. That, in my opinion, is priceless!

Jordan and the entire team were fantastic to work with and very helpful. The route was covered clearly before the ride and very easy to follow and they were available to assist with everything from wine pickups to help with directions (If needed). I would highly recommend this to anyone and will be doing it again in the future. The extra $ for the electric assisted bikes is very much worth the money.

Very scenic trip. The E-bikes were amazing and really helped with some of the steep hills. We weren’t expecting much for my bag lunch but the sandwiches were made at a local sandwich shop and everything was fresh and tasted phenomenal. Will definitely recommend and do again.

Our group of five rented bicycles to ride the TART trail and the entire experience was great! Everyone I dealt with from the gentleman who took our reservation to the interactions at pick up and drop off were fantastic. We really appreciated being refunded the portion of time we didn’t use. The bikes were good of quality and easy to ride. Helmets were provided. I would definitely use them again and highly recommend as well!

What a perfect Day! We did the self guided wine tour with e-bikes. Every detail was taken care of -- bikes were great, staff were knowledgeable and friendly, weather was gorgeous, and lots of wineries to enjoy. It was the perfect way to enjoy the stunning scenery and explore the area. Definitely a 5 star experience.
