Guaranteed Weather Protection for Cyclists Introduced Across North America
RentaBikeNow.com, North America’s only coast-to-coast bicycle rental network has implemented a “no-risk” reservation policy that allows weather cancellations of online bike rental reservations at any of their 240 participating bike shops. As part of their “Triple Online Reservation Promise” cyclists can cancel up until the scheduled pick-up day and time with no further obligation and will even receive their deposit back as a credit for future online reservations within the RentaBikeNow.com network.
Launched in early 2009, RentaBikeNow.com revolutionized cycling across North America by making it easy to find and reserve rental bikes before you travel. Now, they’ve done it again by removing the risk of reserving a bike in advance and facing inclement weather at pick-up.
“RentaBikeNow.com allows consumers to search in advance by geography, then review, compare and reserve the perfect bikes before they travel,” says company President George Gill. “Our new policy allows consumers to reap all the benefits of advanced reservations, without the risk,” he adds. The RentaBikeNow.com network has grown quickly and now includes thousands of available rental bikes across 188 North American cities.
Although the service is less than a year old, the website has undergone constant improvement to better serve customers. “This is truly a collective effort that has made huge progress due to user and shop feedback,” said company co-founder and system architect Ray Schuhmann. “As cyclists ourselves, we’re excited to help make North America more bike friendly.”
Other recent innovations include a powerful mapping system that’s available within the website’s “Route Explorer” tab. Through a partnership with MapMyRide, web visitors can easily locate good routes to ride before they travel and rent a bike -good weather pending, of course.
