You may also transport your rental yourself to your destination. We are also close to Stoneridge, Lynx Creek, and the trails starting off of Walker Road.
It is not very likely to run out of battery during a ride. However, it is not impossible. If you only use the electric throttle and don't pedal then you will deplete the battery much faster than normal and may have to pedal your way back on your own power. We recommend that you pedal just like a regular bike (using the pedal-assist function) and you will go much farther on battery assist.
