If we have 100 tourists, 30 of them both have beverages and ride bicycles.
If 60% of the tourists riding bicycles do not have beverages, 40% of the tourists riding bicycles is 30.

The total members having bicycles can be calculated as follows:

If \(40\)% is \(30\) and \(100\)% is x, then x = \(30*\frac{100}{40} = 15*5 = 75\)

Therefore, 25 tourists have no bicycles and this represents \(\frac{25}{100}\) or \(25\)% of the tourists(Option C)
