Your health and safety is our top priority.
All of our realities has shifted in light of the pandemic and we’re taking extra steps to ensure your wellness, comfort, and peace of mind. Here’s how our policies, processes, and offerings have evolved with the times.
Dandyhorse’s cleaning and safety procedures exceed relevant Covid-19 guidelines published by the WHO and the CDC.
How we clean our bikes
Our bikes are thoroughly cleaned after every ride. This includes power-washing with hot water and fully disinfecting all touchpoints (handlebars, top-tube, grips, saddle, front bike bag, etc) using a 99% isopropyl alcohol solution. This means you get the most sanitary bike in the business, one that is likely dramatically cleaner than your bike at home, without the harmful chemical residues found in products like Lysol.
How we clean our helmets
All helmets are fully cleaned and sterilized using a 99% isopropyl alcohol solution inside and out after every ride. We also regularly wash the pads. Again no harmful chemicals and the cleanest helmets in the business.
Hand sanitizing station
We have that liquid gold! Use our touchless pump if you’re ever concerned about cleaning your hands before or after the tour (we have a sparkingly-clean bathroom too so you can wash up with soap and hot water). Your guide also has a bottle of hand-san should you need a touch up along the ride.
Shop cleaning procedures
We clean our shop thoroughly every day. This including disinfecting our iPad check-system after every guest, and property cleaning all surfaces (including tables and seating) after every tour group.
Shop air purification
Breathe easy! Our shop is protected by a HEPA filtration system that continuously filters out 99.95% of the germ, dust, and grime particles in the air.
Get that extra layer of protectin. We have free, extra-strong gloves for you. Black, latex-free, hypoallergenic, and we have sizes to fit all riders.
Social Distancing & Our Bike Adventures
Our bike adventures naturally allow for proper social distancing in an open-air environment. Biking naturally allows for a bit more space and a truly expansive, head-clearing experience we all need now. We’ve also debuted a slick wireless system so your expert guide can share awesome insights while giving a little bit more space.
