Looks cool! How does it work?
Bring your own beer (or wine), and we'll provide a sober driver and the good time! The Pedals & Pints vehicle is a 15-passenger bike bar used to tour the town. Riders pedal the bike around town, stopping at various breweries and restaurants to rehydrate and sample local suds and fare. Provided drivers ensure that your next get-together, company outing, birthday party, girls’ night out, bachelorette or bachelor party is a safe and memorable experience.
What days and times are tours available?
Tours are available 7 days-a-week during the following set, two-hour time slots:
How much does it cost and how long are the tours?
Standard bike bar tours are 2 hours long and cost $300 (about $20 per person with a full crew of 15). Bring a few bucks for parking! A complete tour schedule and availability can be found HERE.
How much should I tip our driver?
As you would with any other worker in the service industry, you can base the amount of your tip on the level of service. Nonetheless, the baseline standard of 15% to 20% as a tip should apply. If the service is noticeably subpar, a 10% tip may be appropriate; however, contact us to report any service issues that warranted a low tip. Remember, a tip of 20% should apply to the total amount of your tour rental. While it may seem generous to tip a driver just $20, Pedals & Pints rents for $300 per tour- so a 20% tip of $60 for excellent service would only be fair.
Where do tours start? Where do they end? And where can we go?
Standard tours will begin and end at Boise Art Collective Parking Lot (Lot 1A) on the corner of 12th and Front st. Boise 83702. If you park in the lot, make sure you pay! We ask that your entire party arrive 15 minutes prior to departure, allowing time to load the bike and go over safety rules and regulations. Tours are two hours and, barring any traffic issues or excruciating hills, the Pedals & Pints bike bar is allowed to venture wherever you’d like, within reason, of course. Your driver has final say of where your tour may go, and will provide a handful of recommended routes.
How many people are allowed on board? What's the minimum number that can pedal the bike bar?
In addition to the provided driver, 15 people are allowed to ride. There are two seats above the wheels that are not equipped with pedals – three others fit comfortably on the back bench (also, without pedals). To depart, a minimum of 10 riders is needed.
What if there are only a few of us? Can we still book a tour?
At this time, the simple answer is no. Since we need at least 10 riders to operate, scheduling individual seats is difficult and can create conflict between riders (if someone backed out, or if one group wanted to go here or there or listen to this music, for example).
What should I bring for my tour?
We provide the bike bar, driver, cooler and music. You are responsible for your own ice, decorations, and pub-friendly food like chips and pretzels and water.
What hours does the Pedals & Pints bike run?
Tour times are:
10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
1 PM - 3 PM
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
6 PM - 8 PM
8:30 PM - 10:30 PM
We schedule a half hour between each tour to assure we have enough time to off-board one group, clean the bike, and on-board the next.
How do I book and pay for a tour?
See the Book Now page. Navigate to your chosen date, then select from the remaining time slots. Simply enter your credit card information and pay in full.
Is it safe?
Yes. The Pedals & Pints bike rolls along comfortably at a rate of 8-10 mph. Liability waivers are required for all riders and can be found HERE.
Can I just print the waiver and bring it with me?
No. (But wait- here's a really good "Why"!): Since the Pedals & Pints bike already gets great fuel mileage, we like to continue to have as little impact on our world, so we've made it really easy for you to complete our Liability Waiver from any device that can access the internet! Simply click or tap HERE to complete!
What is the cancellation policy?
You may cancel 7 days or more from your tour date, and receive a full refund. You can also choose to move your booking to a future date with notice of 7 days or more. If you cancel your tour within 7 days of your scheduled date, half your payment will be forfeited.
Can I bring glass containers on board?
Glass growlers and wine bottles are allowed, but any other glass (individual glass containers) needs to stay off the bike. A couple growlers or wine bottles are a lot easier to keep from falling than a rack of bottles, and we may not be able to stop in the middle of traffic to clean it up!
