    Stop: 2 hours -
    Join us on a fun-filled and informative bike ride around downtown Asheville! Meet us at our shop in the heart of the up-and-coming South Slope amidst the breweries, art galleries and restaurants that are making a name for this neighborhood. After putting the electric bikes to the test on a short ride up the slope, we will ride downtown past some of the unique local shops and businesses that make Asheville so different from any other city in the region. • Our first stop will be at the amazing Basilica of St. Lawrence, a masterpiece of local architecture built by Rafael Guastavino, whose work is featured in Grand Central Station and the Biltmore Estate. We’ll have the chance to go inside and explore the impressive structure, which features the largest unsupported dome in North America. • From there we will ride down the quiet streets of the Historic Montford Neighborhood alongside some of the most beautiful grand old homes in Asheville. We’ll then take the peaceful Reed Creek and Glenn’s Creek Greenways past UNC Asheville before starting the climb through North Asheville neighborhoods up to the historic Grove Park Inn. We will walk through the Inn and get a magnificent view from the Sunset Terrace. • After heading back downtown, we’ll stop in Pack Square, where Asheville was originally founded. Here is a perfect vantage point to learn about Asheville’s history and its abundant art-deco architecture, the second largest collection in the country. Our final stop will be in the heart of the South Slope, where we will share about the recent history of Asheville, its challenges and triumphs

Additional Info

  • The electric bikes will take all of the hard work out of your ride. We routinely have riders that span the spectrum of age and fitness. The main requirement is that you be coordinated and fit enough to balance a 55-pound bike. A training and practice session is provided at the start of each tour. For people that would like to go on the tour but are not able to balance a bike, it is possible to arrange a ride on the back of one of our stretch cargo bikes that will be driven by another person in your party.
  • Legally, you must be 16 years or older to operate an electric bike. Guides reserve the right to request proof of age of any rider. Riders should also be at least 5 feet tall to operate their own bike. Guests younger than 16 may ride as a passenger with an adult in their group on the back of one of our cargo bikes or in a child seat (for children ages 1-6 or up to 48.5 pounds).
  • Tours are subject to favorable weather conditions. If there is light rain in the forecast but none at the start of the tour, we will decide together at the time of the tour whether to ride. We will provide rain ponchos and rain covers for the storage bags on the bikes to protect your belongings. If canceled due to poor weather, you will be given the option of an alternative date or full refund.
  • This experience requires good weather. If it’s canceled due to poor weather, you’ll be offered a different date or a full refund
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 7 travelers
Cancellation Policy
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.

This is the best bike tour for anyone who thinks they are not strong enough to make it up the hills in Asheville. Electric pedal assist bikes gives you a boost to ride with confidence and ease. We had a great group to tour with and our guides watched out for our safety as well

The guide Anna explained how to operate the bikes clearly as the group was all novices. My wife fell down on her first try, probably from operator error but the gravel parking lot may have been a factor as well. After the fall, it was noticed that the chain had been dislodged.

An amazing bike tour filled with lots of information, beautiful scenery, intriguing history and two kind and friendly guides. Loved this so much and I highly recommend it to anyone going to Nashville, or even living here already. I learned so much in such a short amount of time.
