Here at The Oxbow we take the outdoors seriously, and we hope you do too. Sure, our indoor spaces and courtyard host a lot of action you won’t want to miss, but our big goal while you’re here is getting you outside to truly enjoy the rich landscape of this city. We’re talking 32 miles of beautiful, paved bike trails (in the city alone), two gorgeous rivers, and a gleaming oxbow lake. At some point during your visit, we want you out on those trails and out on the water, seeing our beautiful city up close.

We’re kind of proud of it.

With that in mind, included with your stay is full access to our fleet of bicycles (singles, tandems, and burleys), our awesome Surrey (a side-by-side bicycle car thing – you’ll love it), as well as kayaks, canoes, and tubes. In the winter, we toss in snowshoes, cross country skis, and skates, as well. We’ve got all the gear, maps, and instruction you’ll need for a safe and successful mini adventure. We can even help you get from point A to point B if needed.

Contact us for details or questions on borrowing outdoor gear, or to reserve something ahead of time to make sure it’ll be available.

OPENING NOTE: As we're just opening our doors in October of 2016, please note that the kayaks and canoes, as well as the large Surrey bike, will not be launched and available until the spring of 2017. However, standard and tandem bikes will be available throughout the fall!
