Hi there We will be in Ottawa and looking to do some biking along the Rideau on Wed July 17. Do you recommend advance booking? Thanks.

I reserved online which made the checkout process faster; however it seemed like they had plenty of bikes so it's also probably OK not to reserve ahead of time. You don't have to prepay to reserve.

Hi I am interested in renting bikes when my 2 lady friends and I are visiting from BC in mid June. We are leisure riders and would need women's bikes with at least a few gears for hills. Does one need to reserve (or can we)? Do we need to bring helmets or are you still renting them with the bikes? Can one rent the bike and then lock it somewhere while you have lunch or whatever? What would be the cost including tax for a bike, helmet, and lock for each? Just wondering. Thanks.
