DO WE ALL NEED TO PEDAL?

For Public Tours: Although we do have some non-pedaling seats, all riders must be willing and able to pedal at all times or must leave the tour and will not receive a refund. (We have no motor, only you!)

For Private Tours: If you book the bike, there must be a minimum of 8 people willing to pedal. There are 10 pedaling seats on each bike and 6 non-pedaling seats.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

All PedalPub® tours are two hours long . On Friday and Saturday, the cost is $420. Sunday through Thursday the rate is discounted to $375. The renter pays the full cost of the tour at the time the reservation is made.

Mixer / Public Tours are $33-$38 per seat.

HOW MANY PEOPLE DOES IT HOLD?

You can have up to 16 people maximum in your group. Sorry, but no exceptions to that number. You can’t have 17.

There are 10 pedaling seats, plus two seats over the axles that are non-pedaling. The bench seats three, plus one standing spot in the middle for your ‘bartender’. We recommend a minimum of eight people to rent the PedalPub®.

If you don’t have 8-16 people in your group, please check out our Mixer Tours!

IS THE ALCOHOL INCLUDED?

PedalPub St Pete does not and cannot provide any alcohol.  Per City ordinance, alcohol may only be consumed while ON the PedalPub–not in the building or parking lot.

You can bring beer in cans or plastic. You can also bring hard lemonade, hard cider, seltzer, and boxed wine. No glass.   

We recommend bringing no more than two to three cans per person.  (You’ll be making 2-3 stops at bars and breweries.)  

Also per City ordinance, hard liquor is prohibited, including pre-mixed bottles, cans, pouches, or jello shots.  

SHOULD I BRING A COOLER?

Yes.  Please bring your beverages (on ice) and snacks (if you wish) in a small or 6-pack size cooler. Two to three beverages/person is perfect!

WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?

We go out in all weather, RAIN OR SHINE, so plan your outfit accordingly! If there is a severe weather warning, the pilot will determine if it’s safe to continue.

If the Pilot needs to cancel your tour, you will be issued a rain check.

CAN I RENT MORE THAN ONE PEDALPUB®?

Yes, we have three bikes and can handle groups of up to 48 people.  They can be reserved on our website–just make new reservations for each one.

Plan carefully though, and make sure you have enough people for each bike. Please refer to our cancellation policy.

WHO CAN RIDE? WHAT ARE THE PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS?

Pretty much any adult-type person!  All riders must be at least 21 years old.

The bike seats can hold up to 300 lbs. The bench and bartender positions have no restrictions.

For Public Tours:  Although we do have some non-pedaling seats, all riders must be willing and able to pedal at all times or must leave the tour and will not receive a refund.  (We have no motor, only you!)

For Private Tours:  If you rent the entire bike and have enough people (at least eight) to pedal during the tour, you’re good to go even if you can’t pedal!  There are six non-pedaling positions on the bike.  You’ll just have to talk your friends into sweating/pedaling for you!

We have had pregnant women, blind people, and even a 94-year-old ride with us!

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL?

Our cancellation policy is as follows:
• More than 30 days out – you can reschedule, or get a 50% refund.
• 14 – 30 days out – you can reschedule only, no refunds apply.
• Less than 14 days out – no refunds or rescheduling will be allowed.

WHAT ARE THE RULES?

City licensing requirements hold us to a standard. The pilot will go over the rules and behavior expectations at the beginning of your tour. Most of these are outlined on the waiver. If you act in a dangerous or unruly manner, you may be asked to leave, and could be charged the behavior violation fee.

We want to be good neighbors as well as help you to have a great time!

WHAT ARE SOME TIPS FOR A SUPER FUN RIDE?

Bring a small cooler with your beverages & ice.  Two to three beverages per person is perfect.  (You’ll be going into bars and breweries.)  Bring a snack, too, if you wish.

Bring CASH – preferably lots of ones!  Some bars don’t take credit cards.

Be patient! Our bars and breweries are trying to serve all of you at once, PLUS their regular customers. Order all the same kind of shot or pitchers of beers to help things go smoothly.

If you want a bunch of different stuff, have one person place the order and have one person pay for the entire order. It takes a long time to run 16 different cards.

Follow the Pilot’s directions and stay on time.

WHAT'S THE WAIVER ALL ABOUT?

Just like riding any bike, riding the PedalPub® can be potentially dangerous. We offer bike helmets for your safety. You don’t have to wear one – that’s up to you. You take responsibility if you bump your noggin’ or behave badly. Click the yellow button below to review a copy of our waiver
