*The escorted bike ride or a leisure bike ride on your own are not suited for a child who is 10 years old or younger. For all bike rides, we strongly recommend that Gusts be in shape, know how to ride a bike, have ridden a bike recently, and know that the bike ride will take place on a solid surface, gravel and cobblestones, through towns, along the river, near traffic, crossing streets, etc. Bike trails are no on grass. PLEASE NOTE: Guests wishing to bike on their own can visit the Cruise Manager to reserve a bicycle. There will be a couple of "junior" bikes onboard that are suited for a 9-year-old to 12-year-old child, depending on their size. However, the Cruise Manager will need to see in person any child under 9 years old or any small child, since small-sized bikes and helmets need to be outsourced. Also, since we always put safety first and try to prevent accidents, if the Cruise Manager determines that a child shouldn't ride a bike, he or she will give that child other activity options..
