Our experience with Bay City was HORRIBLE. The staff was very unorganized and just made up prices on the fly. We had a groupon which bought us to this place but while other customers were coming to rent bikes the day price ranged from $30-70...More

Good: Cycling was something you should experience if weather is good Bad: Bicycles was not powerful. Maybe OK for safety, but not speedy. Advice: Check ferry timetables in advance. It may be changed without notice.

They do not verify email before using it. Apparently they take any email you give and then use it for marketing purposes w/o verifying that it's yours. Very annoying if you are the owner of the email.More
