Gilligans E-Bike Rental Shop Opens in Friday Harbor with ‘Three-Hour Tours’
From San Juan Island Chamber of Commerce
The San Juan Island Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Friday Harbor welcomed the new business Gilligans Island Style E-Bike Rentals to the community last Thursday with a ribbon cutting.
After purchasing a pair of E-Bikes for themselves, Jodie and Doug DeNure were hooked. They decided to share the experience of riding these pedal-assist electric bikes and Friday Harbor was the perfect place for the new venture.
Jodie DeNure is the owner. She opened the business with the help of her husband Doug, AKA Gilligan.
Married 36 years, they wanted to find something they could do while spending their days together. This has been a great experience for them so far and they are looking forward to a great summer here on the island.
“We offer 90-minute, half-day ‘3-hour tours’ (Gilligan’s favorite) and full-day rentals,” said the DeNures. “These are all self-guided. Maps and recommended routes are provided to avoid any castaways.”
The business offers two user-friendly models of Rad Power E-Bikes: A step-through model, one-speed with a throttle, and a cargo wagon seven-speed with a throttle. The cargo wagon can include child carriers, pet carriers, deck pads and safety bars for kids to ride.
Rentals include helmets and locks.
