Bike rentals in Northern VA, GAP and C&O Canal bike tours, leasing programs, and corporate bicycle events in the northern Virginia-DC-Mid-Atlantic area.
We offer the area's largest variety of bike rentals - road, hybrid, mountain, tandem, kids, trail-a-bikes, trailers, bike touring/camping gear, and more. Daily, weekly, monthly, and lease options available. We support corporate "green" initiatives through a custom leasing program, and offer corporate group rentals for team building and social events.
Get Out and Go Tours will send you a prior year Great Allegheny Passage - C&O Canal TrailBook or TrailGuide FREE, if you will pay the $2.66 media mail rate postage, and like our page. I am clearing some space, and this is better than disposing of these valuable resource guides.
The books include a waterproof trail map, trip planning info, and many advertiser contacts (like us).
Payment may be by return check when received, PopMoney bank transfer, PayPal balance transfer, or Venmo, as long as it nets us the postage. You may also pick up one book for free. Message for details.

The family friendly C&O Canal tour was a success. A steamy, somewhat muddy success. Such a green August (and whole summer). Fall leaves are going to be amazing.
Afternoon Mt. bike ride at Salamander
What other bike rental source would take your 2230 request, and deliver a bike to your hotel by 2330, for your early morning enjoyment?
I have the best job in the world!

Our owner is at it again, and his wife is NOT gonna be happy...BUT, a #GEARSFORGOOD rider will be! Tom picked up a 52 cm Specialized CruX Expert cyclocross bike today, to fill in the size gap for CX bikes in the rental fleet, and someone will get to match to it for the Gears ride.
Needs a small amount of attention, like air in the tires and chain cleaning and lubrication, but this carbon fiber beauty will be rolling and in the rental fleet soon.
I was hoping it was a 54 cm, for W. Scott Wise to use on GearsforGood.com, but this is good too. #HFA #HFAGEARSFORGOOD2018
Excited to announce that the 2018 Gears for Good Tour will feature Gary J Hoffman (gjhoffman.com) in the Gazebo, for americana/country/bluegrass music during happy hour (1700-1830) on Saturday, September 22!

Twenty bikes and helmets delivered and ready to go for today's corporate group. If you want a fun team building event for your company, why not take a ride on the W&OD trail to Leesburg (Davis Mansion at Morven Park, Fireworks Pizza or Macdowell's Brew Kitchen in downtown, or Dry Mill Winery for a wine tasting)?
Happy 30th birthday, Chris. Hope your birthday ride celebration was as good as your friends' gift to you! Get Out and Go Tours appreciated being your birthday party bike provider.
Another great charity bike build is in the books at Salamander Resort, and the YMCA of Loudoun County is in receipt of the bikes for some needy families!
Today's bike build by the FUNSTERS at Salamander Resort & Spa benefits the Hemophilia Federation of America, for some of its youth. How cool is that?
Steve Long and Dana Brayshaw spoke about the bleeding disorders community, to the very interested and hard-working group.
Will work for Compliments!
Happy to receive such a nice note of thanks from a client today. We also delivered a group of bikes for Connections at MetroWest, for a corporate event in Vienna, VA, who called our service, "perfect."
That's a good day!
Another successful bike build for charity. The United Way received 8 bikes from this World Bank team "building" effort. We were happy to serve as build inspectors, to ensure safe and correct build results, before the donation.
Only one wheel nut was missing at the end, and I should have a spare.
And, the post storm views were wild.

Salamander Trail Ride (Private)
If you are ever at Salamander Resort in Middleburg, VA, the trails are invigorating. Especially memorable today, in the rain and with high streams.
Series of photos from HFA Symposium 2018, as we promoted Gears for Good. We got a lot of people up, onto the bikes, to ride for a bit.
Everyone at Symposium wants to ride Gears for Good. You should too.
Why not join the Go Team!?
The elevator at the #HFA2018 Symposium promotes Gears for Good (www.gearsforgood.com), the charity bike ride supported by GoTours, as do handout flyers. Do you like it like we like it? There was a lot of interest and buzz today and the trip is filling nicely. I predict that those who wait too long to register, will be denied entry this year.
Mr. Roberson (with one of our red, Trek 4500D rental Mt bikes) and friends are enjoying their spring break on the C&O Canal towpath, from Dam #5 to Whites Ferry.
Learn to bike now, practice this summer, and ride our charity ride in September. Contact Kelley Westenhoff to learn to ride.
I'm attending my first HFA Symposium, April 26-29 in Cleveland. I look forward to meeting many of the past Gears for Good riders, and to making a lot of new friends, and encouraging more people to join the ride this year.
It sounds like we can ride a trail right out of Cleveland while we are there!
Many have talked about including their children on the GfG ride, and we will explore a family friendly riding option, that includes kids riding part of each day.

Our season has officially begun. Paul and Sue are out on the C&O Canal. and Julie has a road bike out on the Washington and Old Dominion trail today. If you need a rental bike call us at 571-572-2453.
Some good things about the "off" season are that you can repair and recondition things.
Today, I put new tires on the trailer, which is just one of the trailer wish list items. It reminded me that the axles need to get greased, the fenders re-mounted, the lights re-wired, and in some cases, replaced, and we need to get the 'decoration' on it. All current season items.
We are re-vamping the website, and we are still rotating some of the bikes out of the fleet, for new ones.
Amidst it all, United Way received these five bikes, built, today. That charity work always makes me feel good.
News flash from Hemophilia Federation of America:
Gears for Good was so much fun, we just couldn’t wait for next year, so registration is now open for the 2018 National Ride on Sept. 21-23, 2018, from West Virginia to Washington, D.C. Join the ride TODAY!
Giving to Helping Hands through Gears for Good is a great gift!
It’s the perfect time to plan ahead, register for the ride, and encourage your friends and family to make a gift to your Gears for Good participation page as a holiday gift this year!
