Tips for A Great Ride

  • When the pilot calls “PEDAL,” passengers should pedal.
  • When the pilot calls “BREAKING” passengers should stop pedaling.
  • When the pilot calls “COASTING,” passengers may quit pedaling.
  • If doing a bar tour, bring CASH – preferably lots of ones!
  • Tip your waitstaff.
  • Dress for the weather! In summer, leave the flip-flops in your car and wear something that straps to your feet.
  • Avoid loose clothing that can get caught in gears i.e. wigs, long scarves, flowing dresses, etc.
  • Bring your hand held device to plug in and play your own music.
  • Wear the helmets we provide for your safety!
  • Take lots of pictures!!  These memories are worth it!!
  • And most of all, HAVE FUN!!!
