Each Coastal Cruiser provides seating for two small children in the front, features independent pedaling systems and gears, as well as a colourful canopy to keep you shaded on your ride.
Rent your Coastal Cruiser for $40 per half-day from Stanhope Campground. Call 902-672-6350 for more information.
