Wow! Loved this bike tour!! Could not have been better. Clearly our guide's (Leigh) knowledge of the local architecture, history and fun-facts was only second to her genuine desire for me to have a great time! Leigh brought the eclectic neighborhoods of Riverside and Avondale to life, showing me things from where the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd played to the Maxwell (house coffee) Mansion and Spanish-Mission styled church. The easily navigated streets made biking a breeze. Easily accessible from my hotel, this is a must see/do tour. You have not seen Jacksonville if you haven't taken this bike tour.
Took the San Marco tour with Leigh. Fantastic way to spend the afternoon. Excellent value - you get the bike, the helmet, water & snack, and a knowledgeable/friendly tour guide. San Marco is an easy physical ride - everything is flat. The highest point in the entire city of Jacksonville is only 40 feet above sea level. I plan to return and do one of the other tours.
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!
