James was in the market for a car when his manager at the Sacramento Hostel brought him to Practical Cycle in search of a more sensible transportation solution. James got a smoking deal on a used Pedego Electric Bike from our rental fleet. We also outfitted him with a Practical Package, which includes a basket, helmet, lock, and lights. Some recreational and fitness riders think electric assistance defeats the purpose of a bike, but the truth is that James' new e-bike actually defeats the purpose of a car.
The Sacramento Hostel is housed in a beautiful 19th century mansion, one of the few surviving Gold Rush-era buildings on Sacramento’s Merchant Row. A restored grand entry, vaulted ceilings, wood paneling, chandeliers, stained glass skylight, and fireplaces with original hand-painted tiles all add to the historic appeal of this uniquely refined hostel. During the warmer months, Practical Cycle serves a steady stream of Sacramento Hostel guests who receive a 10% discount on rentals.
