Beautiful Winter Ride in the Historic San Marco district! I had some extra time while on a family visit in Jacksonville and picked e2ride out of the internet. A great choice as Leigh knows quite a bit about environmental issues (bioswales and river-keeping) as well as the history and local interest of the many buildings in the San Marco neighborhood. I particularly liked the part of the ride along the St. John's River. As it turned out I was the only participant on my 10 am tour - I got special attention for sure - I am also grateful that the tour was not cancelled because there was only me. I will definitely return and visit some of the other areas of the city on my next visit using e2ride.
FANTASTIC INTRODUCTION TO JACKSONVILLE! I had a wonderful tour of the San Marco neighborhood on a beautiful sunny December Sunday - my hat is off to Leigh for her energy, enthusiasm, and passion for cycling and for telling Jacksonville's story! Highly recommend a bike tour as a way to get to know this beautiful city.
Loved It! What a great way to spend a beautiful October afternoon! I took the San Marco tour with Leigh several years ago before we moved to Jacksonville. We have since moved to Jax, and returned with a friend to do the Riverside/Avondale tour, and plan to eventually do them all. Leigh is very knowledgeable and shares a tremendous amount of information about the local community, architecture, and history. She's also a great host/tour guide, providing water and snacks for the trip and taking group pictures. Leigh fits each bike to the rider. The bikes are great quality, comfortable Trek bikes, and after this trip I plan to buy one for myself.
A great way to learn about the area, while getting a bit of exercise as well. Well worth every penny paid for this tour!
Thank you Lee for accommodating me and my friends on such short notice. We enjoyed the bike tour... Definitely, the best choice for us to see so much of the city in a short period of time. We got to see downtown (old and new) and got to see some amazing wild life along the way - Dolphins and "Bald Eagles" too - FREEDOM!!! I personally enjoyed all the historical references... and oh yeah great Trek bikes. Would 100% recommend. ALOHA, Michael
Five Stars! The Riverside/Avondale bike tour is a great way to see some of the nicest neighborhoods in Jacksonville, up close and personal. Riding - with some well-spaced stops, we heard interesting stories of history, architecture and residents. Leigh is well-prepared with cold water, snacks and other miscellaneous comforts as needed. We appreciated her friendly interaction with the neighbors who have come to know her tour.
We only had one free day in Jacksonville; it was fun to spend 3 hrs. of our day getting to know the city while exercising and meeting a new friend. Thanks, Lee!
