Rental and Liability Waiver and Information

Rental Information and Explanation: 

A rental day is for the hours of the day the shop is open regular hours are 10-6pm Monday-Saturday, 10-5pm Sunday. Seasonal hours are reduced during winter months, Deceember-February, check our hours during these months as they different than during season. Rentals may be picked up at the time we open and must be returned 30 mintues before we close to avoid a late fee. If you return a bike late or after we close you will be charged for another day rental of the bike you reserved. 

Early pick up (the night before your rental day) or late drop off (the morning after your day rental) is usually available for an extra $25. Check with the shop to see if you can add this on. 

If we see that your bike transportation from the shop to the park is not suitable for the bike we will charge you to rent a suitable solution for your bike or charge you a bike delivery for a minimum of $25. We rent tailgate pads for $25 and bike racks with a hitch receiver for $25. 

All riders must sign the Release of Liability Form. Riders under 18 years of age must have forms signed by a parent or legal guardian.

Brown County Bikes advises and recommends all riders to wear the provided CPSC approved helmet. I acknowledge that I have been advised to wear a helmet and have been offered a rental helmet.

Refund/Cancellation Policy:
Payment will be taken against your credit card if you fail to show up (no refunds).

Cancellations within 30 days of reservation date will be charged in full. Reservations made within 5 days of pickup time are considered confirmed, require payment in full, and are non-refundable.

If you are reserving more than 30 days in advance 50% of your payment is required to confirm your reservation. If you cancel your reservation more than 30 days in advance a full refund is available to you. If you cancel your reservation within 30 days or less than your reservation date no refund is given but you get 365 days to transfer the rental reservation. You must use your rental transfer within 365 days of cancellation. 

A hold on your credit card will be placed when picking up the rental bike for the selling price of the bike. The hold will show up as a pending charge on your account. Once you return the bike in the same condition the hold will be lifted from your credit card.

If I do not return the rented equipment in the same condition as when rented, or it is lost or stolen, I will be charged full retail value for all repairs and parts, including cleaning. Charges will be applied to credit card on file or deposit when placing the hold. I understand that I am responsible for any damage to rental equipment, including damage resulting from transport.

I agree to accept AS IS the equipment rented, and I accept full responsibility for the care of this equipment. The parties agree that the equipment was inspected by both parties and that the equipment was in good serviceable condition. I agree to reimburse Brown County Bikes for any damage cause to the equipment. I have checked the bike I am renting and acknowledge that it is in excellent working order.
