  • Practical Cycle
    Want to get on a bicycle but feel intimidated by intense spandex-clad cyclists? Practical Cycle is the place for you. They call themselves a “Transportation Company” because they believe that bikes are more than just a tool for fitness. They are good ways to commute and they cut down on traffic and pollution, not to mention they’re fun. Practical Cycle offers bikes you won’t find many other places, including electric bikes, cargo bikes (good for carrying children or other large items), and adult tricycles. Practical Cycle also rents bikes, and has created a beautiful and handy bike route map of Sacramento. These guys are so great at customer service, it’s no surprise that they’ve been voted Pedego Electric Bikes’ Dealer of Year many times over.

Finally, mechanics wipe down revived cycles and hop on for a test ride, ensuring that all the gears, chains, and handlebar pompoms flow effortlessly for a smooth, pleasant ride.

  • Folsom Bike
    Folsom Bike’s experienced bicycle technicians rehabilitate cycles and pair horseless riders with trusty two-wheeled rentals. During basic tune-ups, pedal physicians pamper asphalt steeds from headset to hub, remedying aches from popping wheelies with derailleur, brake, and bottom-bracket adjustments and ensuring optimal tire pressure and bolt safety. Creaky cables relax under soothing lubes, and newly trued wheels make for rides smoother than a piggyback from a manta ray. During performance tune-ups, gear gurus raise the velocipedal ante with fresh cables, housings, and frame polish before resurfacing brake pads, overhauling brackets, and weaving handlebar streamers into aerodynamic cornrows. Both basic and performance tune-ups are typically complete within 24 hours.

  • Red Bike Tours USA
    Aside from the piercing, finely tuned whir, all that an onlooker standing on the side of a winding NorCal highway may discern is a vivid streak of crimson. If that streak were to be slowed down considerably, he might also recognize the famed Ducati insignia on the side of a bright red motorcycle as it rushes past—as well as the wildly ecstatic grin on the face of the rider. That grin is thanks to Red Bike Tours USA, a motorcycle rental company that deals exclusively in lightning-fast Ducatis and white-knuckle thrills. The company rents out the keys to the Italian super-bikes for a day at a time, and it rents out the bikes, too. Motorcyclists can opt for a Ducati Multistrada 1200 S and take it cruising over the San Francisco Bay Bridge, or go with a 1199 Panigale S and point its Oz Magnesium wheels in the direction of the snowy slopes of Tahoe. A 1200 GT, Sport Classic, and 20th Anniversary Monster 796 round out the fleet of high-performance machines.
