Pedal Tour Fun

Driving pedal tour truly is the funnest job ever, sure not every group is perfect but the overwhelming majority are filled with great people. I love to see how much fun groups are having, you will never know how fun it is to high five someone walking on the street or when someone honks and wishes you a happy birthday because of the sign on the back of the bike. Going on a pedal tour is such a unique experience in so many ways and you need to try it for yourself! Anyone you know who has been on one will tell you what a great time they had. Just look at all the smiles on the photos we post and they will sell you more on a pedal tour then anything I can write here.

Bachelor Party Fun

The Route

Our only goal is to make sure you have as much fun as possible and want to go on another tour. You dont have to let us know what route you want to do until when we call you the Monday before your tour to walk you through the day of your tour and to find out what route you want to take.  The jist of how the routes work is that you pick one bar among a cluster of bars in an area then get on the bike and pedal to a different part of downtown and pick among that cluster of bars. Tours begin and end at our new garage space at 220 Herald Place. Be sure to remind people it is not Harold as in the name or Herald “street” which is somewhere far off. 220 Herald Place is where Press Room Pub is which is a great bar and restaurant where our tours commonly meet up before for drinks or end up going for food and drinks after. If you plan on eating after we encourage you to make a reservation because it is a popular place.

Area 1

Wolfl’s Biergarten lets you bring in your own food to eat

Area 2

Shaughnessy’s which is in the Hotel Syracuse

Area 3

Oh My Darling does $1 off drinks for our riders

Blue Tusk

Empire Brewing

Or Any of the other Armory Square Bars

Armory Square District features many amazing restaurants to pick between

Bring in your own food and snacks when you visit Wolfls Beer Garden

Pro Tips

At the beginning of every tour we tell the group that we are in a referral based industry. We want to make sure you have a GREAT experience and want to do it again. In fact when you book a tour it asks how did you hear about us and the number one response is a friend/family member did a tour.  From driving so many tours we have acquired a wealth of knowledge to pass on to our groups to make sure you have the best possible time. We realize that as the organizer of your group that you have the hardest job so we are here to try and make it as easy as possible on you. Here are some great pro tips to ensure an amazing tour. We have perfected how to have a perfect tour down to a science&lt
Before Your Tour
The organizer of your tour is sent a confirmation email that explains what we provide, where to go, when to show up, where to park and many other important things. A great idea is to forward, screenshot, copy/paste this email because everything everyone needs to know is in this and you will not have to say everything over and over. Also no one can say you did not tell me this or that, its just that they did not read what you sent them. On the day of the tour they can check against what you sent out instead of having to text/call you. If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out anytime via call, text or email.  We will call you a few days before your tour to walk you through how the day of your tour will play out. Read our other blog entries before this phone call and you will have a greater understanding of what to expect during your tour and see some great decorating ideas
What we tell you during the phone call the week before your tour
Your tour begins and ends at 220 Herald Place which is right by the awesome Press Room Pub. We need everyone to come early because we have pre tour stuff we have to do with your group. Your group will need to sign a waiver before we begin our pre tour spiel (they are printalbe on our FAQ section and also attached to your confirmation email) so print them out ahead of time and have your group sign them as they arrive. By completing this ahead of time it speeds up the boarding process, hopefully we are able to get everything done before your tour start time and we leave a littler earlier which is free bonus time out on the bike. Make sure everyone in your group knows not to tailgate in the street or parking lot before the tour. We do not want to get off on the wrong note because we have a great partnership with our landlord who owns Press Room Pub
If you are celebrating a birthday/bachelorette
Don’t forget the decorations, our Facebook page, blog and the gallery on this website have some great ideas from prior groups. You are able to bring your own food, snacks, appetizers and candy on the bike to celebrate. Just don’t forget the plates, napkins, knives that go along with it.   When decorating don’t forget to bring masking tape to use (no packaging tape or clear tape because we dont want the finish to get taken off the bike and cleaned up for the next tour) for ballons bring just a few and make sure they are on strings we cannot have tens of ballons blocking our view and when hanging things keep in mind you don’t want them to be in someone’s face. Signs on the back of the bike are a BIG Deal when groups make signs all the cars and people on the streets go wild,  they cannot be wider than a door tho (so they don’t cover our turn signals). Put holes in the corners and bring string/zip ties to hang them. Your driver will help you decorate, when the tour is done help them clean it up. NO giant penises ladies we don’t need a kid having to see that. Wolfs Biergarden lets you bring in your own food and snacks which is nice because you can set everything on a table and serve your food. Try to bring cupcakes versus a cake so you do not have to bring all of the serving utensils.  
What to wear –
We have plenty of storage space on the bike for you to put your purses, jackets, gloves, food, etc. The driver stays with the bike while you go into the bar to keep your belongings safe. I always tell groups to overdress and be warm.  In the summer the biggest thing is proper footwear, NO flip flops or sandals while they may have a back on them and not be in danger of falling off exposed toes are dangerous. When the bike is moving the pedals keep moving so when your feet inevitably slip off the pedals we don’t want the pedal to come around and hit your foot. Don’t wear sundresses or skirts either as you can imagine you are sitting on a bike seat you will not be comfortable. Many women have told us we should let others know to wear a sports bra. Please bring a wristlet versus a large purse because all you need is your ID, cash and your credit card during the tour.
What to bring with you?
You do not need to bring a speaker we provide a speaker with a Bluetooth system for you to play whatever you want from your phone. You can bring whatever food, snacks, appetizers and candy that you want. While some food you will be able to eat on the bike while you pedal and others while you are stopped. Wolfls Beergarden is one bar where you can bring your own food into which is perfect for harder to eat foods like cake, chicken wing dip, salsa and dips etc. Some groups bring huge quantities of food, sometimes everyone brings only chips so coordinate what everyone is bringing. Cheese and crackers and vegetable trays tend to not be eaten. You are allowed to bring 2 alcoholic beverages per person on the bike this means 12 oz cans of beer, wine, cider, sparkling seltzers or mikes hard lemonade type drinks. NO glass and NO liquor which includes jello shots and mixed drinks in water bottles and NO boxed wine that you plan on drinking out of solo cups because with all the bumps it will spill all over. Let your groups know all of this because we strictly enforce these rules and you will have to return them to your car across the street.  Have everyone bring cash, it will make it easier for everyone to pay you back and when you go into the bar you will be on a time limit and when people open tabs it is a time consuming process to close them and we don’t want for you to be late. When you are late from one bar it eats into your time at the following bars. We don’t want you to have to dash in and have to rush at the last bar. Dont forget to tip your driver you will see how hard they work making sure you and your friends have a great experience, they do alot more than just drive you from point A to point B. People always wonder what to tip the driver and $5 a person is pretty standard unless people are rowdy and then throw them extra. They will let you know what the drink specials are at the bars you pick, call you ahead of your tour to walk you through how the day of your tour will play out, call to order food ahead for you, take group photos and watch over your belongings. The organizer collects the tip money ahead of time and gives it to the driver at some point before the end of the tour because at the end it is chaios. 
When you show up? 
Sign the waivers and when the tour before you comes back start rallying your troops to use the bathroom and close out there tabs. When the group before yours ends they do a last group photo, give them there bellongings and clean up the bike then your driver will come to find them. If you rent the 15 seat bike you have the Bud Light Bike, if you have the 13 seat bike you have the yellow one.  We ask that you show up early so that we can get everyone situated on the bike, take a group photo, go over information about the bike and put your belongings away before the tour begins. The BIGGEST thing you can do to speed up the process is have everyone sign the waiver ahead of time while you are having drinks or before then (they are printable under the FAQ section) Please listen when the driver is going over the information about the tour ahead of time. We understand you are here to have fun and are super excited but we need to make sure we let everyone know the safety rules and tell you how to have fun (read my wild stories blog) . As the organizer of your group we will take all the photos on your phone so you can chose what photos you want to send out to everyone else.  The bike has plenty of storage space for food and snacks, purses, extra clothing and room for a cooler. Now that you can bring your own cans of beer on the bike and wine in single serving plastic containers which you can find at your local liquor store. Bring two alcoholic beverages per person (12oz cans). NO Glass, No liquor which includes jello shots and mixed drinks in water bottles and NO growlers or boxed wine that you would drink out of a solo cup because with all the bumps that will make a mess. We cannot have this on the bike and if you try to bring it you have to bring it back to your car and then they will be mad because they would have just brought what they were allowed to bring.  On our way back at the end of your tour we will give you a 5 minute warning and a last chug before we need to dispose of your cans and get ready for the next tour 
Tour Dont’s

Arrive Late
Try and steal glasses from bars/Bring drinks out of the bar to drink on the bike
Have a conversation with friends while your driver is giving pre tour instructions (you are just cutting into your bar time
Try to get your driver to drink with your group (every group has one person who will try)
Smoke cigarettes/cigar on the bike. As long as your group does not care about e cigarettes we dont care
Leave phones on the counter, when we hit a bump it will move whether it be 1cm, 1 inch or 6 inches we don’t want you to lose your phone
Forget the plates, napkins, cake knife, candles that go along with your food.</li>
Do Not Bring noise makers, we try our best to not make our neighbors angry at our noise
Drive Drunk.  Don’t be stupid and drive drunk. With Uber and Lyft no one has an excuse to drive drunk

Pro Tips

Slice limes for cans of Bud Light Lime and Corona
Don’t forget the water
Bring munchies to eat on the bike and food to eat in the bar on your route that allows you to bring in food
Control the music versus ask the group what they want to hear
Give your group a 5 minute warning in the bar. Finish your drink, dont get another drink, use the bathroom, close out your tab etc.
Make sure your phone has enough memory/battery for photos to be taken on it</li>
Bring a wristlet versus a large purse
For late night tours don’t try and over decorate because certain things will not be seen when it is dark out
Decide ahead of time what you want to do after your tour ends. Trying to get 13 people to agree on anything is hard, it is even harder after they have been drinking for 2 hours.
Call your uber ahead of time so they are waiting for you when you get back (we will let you know what time your group will be back at) Your tour ends 2 hours from your starting time so know to send your pick up for then
If someone cannot arrive on time they can meet us at the first bar and sign the waiver and join your group there

Thank you for taking the time to read this, now when you book a tour you will now how to party and have an amazing experience&lt

Bachelorette Party Pedal Tours

Bachelorette parties are by far our biggest bookers of pedal tours. We have gotten very good at showing them all an amazing experience while making the organizers job as easy and stress fress. Just follow our tips and your group will have just as much fun, if not more! You will have an absolute blast out with your girls on the bike as you cruise around the city. Decorating the bike will make your night be much funner and better when people know you are celebrating. Hanging signs, wearing matching shirts and decorating the bike are the most common things groups do for a bachelorette party. You will be able to bring your own cans of beer, plastic bottles or juice box things of wine and don’t forget the water and food. You are only allowed to bring 2 12oz cans of beer, wine, cider, sparkling seltzers and miked hard lemonade type drinks. You cannot bring glass, liquor which includes jello shots and mixed drinks in water bottles and box wine (you can bring the 500ml juice boxes of wine). Drinking out of solo cups is prohibited because it will spill all over everything when we hit a bump. Bike drinks are bike drinks, bar drinks are bar drinks. Your group is going to have a blast the only problem you may run into is guys trying to run and jump onto the bike to try and join in (which we do not allow and please do not encourage). Guests are allowed to join tours late after they sign the waiver but trying to jump on the bike while it is moving is dangerous and if they try and jump on they are in for a rude awakening from the driver. Besides spending quality time with your girls you have many other things to look forward to such as everyone in cars honking and cheering, people on the streets high fiving you and everyone everywhere taking photos/videos/snapchatting. We even have a tiara for the lucky girl to wear during her tour so make sure you let us know you are celebrating. The 830 and 11pm tour slots are the most common tour slots for bachelorette partys, to find a date and time that works for your group click the book a tour button on the top scroll bar and select the bachelorette party to find a date and time that works for your group. We also want to take a second to note we cannot have giant penises on the bike (straws which are super common are fine) and if you are playing some type of bachelorette game you need to run by your driver in the pre tour phone call what types of challenges are on it. No kissing cops or random people, dancing on bars or anything else that is going to get bars/people calling us up to complain about what you are doing.

Decorating The Bike

Whether your tour is a birthday bachelorette or corporate outing, decorating the bike will make your pedal tour more fun. Not only does it make your photos better but when the cars and people in the streets see you are celebrating an occasion they react by saying happy birthday or things like that. Groups decorate to varying levels, some groups print special shirts and coozies, others go all out decorating the bike, others just put a sign on the back. The only bad decorating is not decorating because it only takes a few minutes and the decorations are super cheap
What To Do- Make a sign for the back of the bike, have the artist in the group make a sign on posterboard like the type you would for a school project back in the day. Now remember it can’t be wider then a doorway so that it doesn’t block our turn signals.  Also put holes in the corners and bring string or zip ties to fasten the sign to the back of the bike. Things like beep for the birthday boy or girl, you beep we drink or anything witty like that makes for a great sign that the cars will react to.  When bringing streamers only bring one color, some groups buy 3 colors and the cluster makes it look uglier then just 1.  Get the group to buy into a theme, whether it be tropical, 80s workout gear or everyone wearing different sports jerseys a theme birthday party will make for a funner tour.
What not to do- Dont try to hang things across the bike or by peoples knees, when we begin pedaling and the breeze blows them into peoples faces and interferes with their pedaling they will get annoyed and take them down. Don’t waste your money or time on decorations like this. Make sure any ballons you bring are on strings, if you try and tape them to the bike they will just blow away and since we do not litter we cannot have that happen. Remember we cannot have our vision compromised by too many ballons, 6 normal ballons is the perfect number.
Do not bring packaging tape</strong>! It will take the finish off the bike and is not allowed for decorating, bring painters tape so when we are cleaning off the bike at the end of your tour for the next group we can make sure we get everything off. Between tours the driver has to take group photos of your group, clean up the bike, get everyone’s belongings down and un decorate while also preparing the next group for their tour to start and helping them decorate, put everything away, get hooked up to the music etc. They can definitely use an extra hand getting everything cleaned up. 
Since decorating goes hand in hand with birthdays here would be a good time to talk about birthday cakes. Wolfs Biergarden will allow you to bring your cake, food, plates, napkins, candles inside to sing Happy Birthday as long as you are buying drinks. We recommend bringing cupcakes versus a cake so you do not have to worry about all the serving utensils.

Corporate Team Building Tours

What is the best type of tour?  When the boss pays for it! There is no better team building or corporate outing in the Syracuse area then going out on a pedal tour with your co workers. We have all different types of options depending on your offices alcohol policy. For offices that are fine with their employees drinking responsibly we offer our super popular bar tours. Bring your own beer, wine, sparkling seltzers, ciders, mikes hard lemonade type drinks and food and we are your tour guide and DD for the tour. If your office has a no drinking policy never fear we also offer architecture and history tours and food tours.
The architecture and history tours take you all around downtown showing off everything from Syracuse’s past in addition to telling you about what is going to be happening in the future. It makes 2 stops for breaks so you will have time to grab some food at a restaurant or to pack a picnic to eat on the bike. The driver who is also your historian will take tons of awesome group photos with Syracuse landmarks as your back drop
Our food tours take groups to 2 different restaurants where you will pre order food based off what time your tour will arrive so that as you arrive your food is coming out and you will skip the waiting. Your driver lets you know what time you will arrive and then you call it in a few days ahead of time. This is perfect for taking out of town bosses around and retirement parties.
We do a ton of corporate outings and they all have a blast! A great team building idea to do on the bike is for everyone to pick out one song and have it put on a mix on spotify, the group then guesses who picked out the song. So whether it is a group of fellow nurses or teachers or a sales team you and your group is in great hands with Syracuse Pedal Tours. No one will do more to make sure your group has a fun, safe and memorable experience then our team

What To Wear On Your Pedal Tour

Ladies in the summer you do not want to wear a skirt or sundress, remember you are sitting on a bike seat and it will be very uncomfortable. Bring a wristlet versus a large purse because you only need your ID and cash during the tour. Many women have told us to add to wear a sports bra to this section so we have. Please wear sneakers, it does not matter if your sandals have backs to them because when the bike is moving your pedals are moving and when your feet inevitably slip off we do not want the pedal to hit your foot when you try to catch the pedals again.
Men- In the summer wear tank tops/sleeveless shirts on hot days. Wear pants/shorts that have pockets that button or zip to safely secure your valueables.  
Footwear- make sure you wear sneakers and not flip flops or sandals. It does not matter if they have backs to them because when the bike is moving the pedals are moving so when your feet inevitably slip off the pedals and you have to catch the pedals we do not want for them to come around and hit anyone on their toes. We also do not want sandals falling off while we are moving because jumping off to get them is very dangerous.
Now that we go year round I wanted to give some suggestions about how to dress properly for all the seasons.For winter tours wear gloves because once your hands get cold your body will get cold and something to cover your ears because that is where your heat escapes. Between the pedaling and drinking you will be more than warm enough. In fact after a few bars most people leave their jackets draped on their seats while they go into the bar.

The bike has plenty of storage space for hoodies, jackets, purses, food, etc so that is why it is important that ladies bring wristlets so that we have room for all of those other things vs large purses taking up a lot of space

Reading Our Blog Entries = Successful Stress Free Pedal Tours

Thank you for taking the time to read our blog entries, we put the time into writing these blogs because we want to make sure your group has as much fun as possible. We have learned from experience that between reading the blog entries and the pre tour phone call if you just do what we instruct you to your group will have an amazing experience. From driving so many tours I get to see firsthand what works and what does not work and I want you to learn from past groups.  It all starts with the organizers communication with the group because we convey everything to the organizer and from there it is up to the organizer to pass it on to the group. We instruct the organizer to forward the confirmation email to the group because it says where to be, at what time, how to dress, what to pack, what to do and not to do.  Then the Monday before your tour we call the organizer to walk you through the day of your tour from where to park, what to pack, what route you want to do, decorating, what to wear and much much more. From there it is up to organizer to let the group know everything. As long as you do what we say you will be fine, the only time tours go wrong is when the organizer is too intoxicated.  
Pro Tips:Print out the waivers and bring them with you, as your group arrives have them sign them. What trips groups up is that everyone must fill in the day of the tour themselves, it is very tempting for the first people to fill in the date and everyone wants to draw an arrow through the other boxes. We need everyone to fill it in with the date of the tour, not the date you are signing it.
Bring a wristlet versus a large purse. You only need your license, credit cards and cash during the tour. 
Bring warm clothes to put on later in case you get cold, we have room for storage
Make sure you bring some type of food, snacks, appetizers or candy to munch on during the We provide a speaker and it has bluetooth capabilities so no need to bring a speaker or aux cord
We will take all the photos on the organizers phone, we like to begin taking the photos after everyone has had a few drinks in them. We will take a ton of photos so be sure to send them out to everyone.
No need to overdecorate. Examples bringing 10 balloons, 4  birthday banners, 3 color streamers. Decorating Ideas If someone is running late they can meet us at the first bar so they do not hold up the group. But when you ask how far away are you make sure you follow it up with “how far away are you really” because they are usually farther then they originally tell you
Please wait until you get on the bike to begin drinking the alcohol you brought. No tailgating in the parking lot pre or post tour. The Press Room Pub lets our guests park for free in their parking lot and is also our landlord so we count on you the organizer to pass this along to your group.
Collect the tip before the tour so people do not spend the money. The end of tour time is chaotic so do not forget to tip the driver either. 
Dont Be That Person
who brings glass 
who holds up the group from leaving one bar so they can smoke a cigarette/use the bathroom
says something smart to people we pass walking, biking or driving by. you may be anonymous but our business is not.
steal glasses from the bar
who makes a point to not pedal the whole tour (without a medical condition)
who asks “we have to pedal this?
does not listen to us about stuff falling out of your pants pockets and has something fall out
interrupts the driver during the pre tour speech, they are cutting into your groups time out on the bike so help the driver keep them in line
who calls someone riding past us on the bike a show off
so we tell the groups when we leave the last bar that any open beers have to be drank by the time we get back and you cannot take them with you. Please do not open a beer when we are a minute away from being back because it holds us up from beginning our next tour on time.

Since decorating goes hand in hand with birthdays here would be a good time to talk about birthday cakes. On each route we have a stop that will allow you to bring your cake, plates, napkins, candles inside to sing Happy Birthday. Don’t forget everything that goes along with the cake. Bringing a full cake is burdensome so we recommend bringing cupcakes. Not those tiny cupcakes tho because they are all frosting and make a mess.

Alcohol and Food

You are allowed to bring 2-12oz cans of beer, wine, cider, sparkling seltzer or mikes hard lemonade type drinks. NO Liquor or Glass that does include jello shots and mixed drinks in water bottles. We go over the alcohol policy every step of the way so there is no confusion. Idk why some people think we do not enforce the rules that we work so hard to communicate but we do. We encourage you to bring some water as well, everyone is thinking drink, drink, drink but they will drink that water and appreciate that you brought it

What is nice about our tours is that our bike has tons of storage space for food, snacks, purses and that the first stop Wolfs Biergarden allows groups to bring in there own food and snacks. That works out in your favor because you can bring sub trays and appetizers inside. Otherwise trying to eat on the bike means chips and cookies and things like that. Chips and salsa/guac/humus and cookies and brownies are the foods that we see groups eat. Vegetable trays and cheese/crackers tend to get neglected so avoid spending the money/time/effort bringing them.

Music

The bike features an awesome blue tooth speaker for someone to be DJ off of. Delegate it to whoever is not a big snap chatter and/or who has Pandora/Spotify premium. Pro Tip have the DJ sign up for the one month free trial for commercial free listening during your tour.

Team Building/Corporate Tours

What is the best type of tour? When the boss pays for it
There is no better team building or corporate outing in the Syracuse area then rallying the office and going out on a pedal tour. We have all different types of options depending on your offices alcohol policy. For offices that are fine with their employees drinking responsibly we offer bar and brewery tours which work the same as a private pub crawl. You pick the route, bring your own beer, wine and food and we are your tour guide and DD for the tour. If your office has a no drinking policy never fear we also offer architecture and history tours in addition to food tours. The architecture and history tours take you all around downtown showing off everything from Syracuse’s past in addition to telling you about what is going to be happening in the future. It makes 2 stops for breaks so you will have time to grab some food at a restaurant or to pack a picnic to eat on the bike. Our food tours take groups to 3 different restaurants for a different course that they pre order at each. This is perfect for taking out of town bosses around and retirement parties. We do a ton of corporate outings and groups love going out on a tour, we commonly hear “a few people in our group aren’t bar people” and what we have seen from our experience is that they have no problem whatsoever going into the awesome bar/restaurants that we take our groups to and that they have just as much sipping a water as the people drinking beer do. A great team building idea to do on the bike is for everyone to pick out one song and have it put on a mix, the group then guesses who picked out the song. So whether it is a group of fellow nurses or teachers or a sales team you and your group is in great hands with Syracuse Pedal Tours. No one will do more to make sure your group has a fun, safe and memorable experience then our team

The Start Up Phase

Starting a new business and moving across the state to a new place required much back work to find out if Syracuse was ready for a second pedal tour business and the answer is YES! I spent 2 days walking all around downtown to map out the best routes to minimize hills and to make sure groups will get their “pedals worth on the bike” I came away super impressed by the architecture and have been reading up on the history of downtown Syracuse as well as the  buildings which our tour will pass. Thank god for Google and the Syracuse Public Library!  Being able to tell our bar tours about the architecture and history of the buildings we pass is one of my favorite things about doing the bar tours in Buffalo and Rochester.  All of the bar owners have been super receptive to becoming partner bars which offer our riders specials on food and drinks. With that being said groups get to pick where they want to go.  At the moment the photos on the website are from Rochester because I want groups to see some awesome decorating and all the smiles on peoples faces. As soon as tours start in Syracuse they will be replaced THAT DAY! I always tell people smiles don’t lie and when you look at the photos under the gallery you will see what a fun time groups have.  I look forward to taking you, your family/friends/co workers out this year!
