You don't need to be a pro racer to enjoy a Paradise Bike Tours ride - we welcome all levels of riders. However, 75% of the tour will be on the road with traffic, so please be prepared to ride attentively.
How does this tour differ from your other tours?
This tour allows our riders the best opportunities to get great views of as many sights as possible. On this tour we will mostly be riding on the city streets alongside traffic, but we will try our best to stay on bike paths, when they are available. All of our tours offer state of the art equipment. Our tour guides are able to clearly communicate to our riders simple instructions as in when to cross streets, stop, go, etc. This equipment also allows our tour guides to provide historical information about each and every attraction. This equipment allows the tour to stop less frequently, so you can see more.
Will there be food and beverages served on the tour?
Paradise Bike Tours will supply each rider with a bottle of water and Gatorade before and after the tour. Please bring a sports drink or snacks if you would like them. We will probably not make any stops for food or drink during the tour.

Your tour lasts approximately 90 minutes.

What if there is rain or inclement weather?
The tour will run rain or shine, so please wear a raincoat or dress for the weather otherwise.
