Great Experience!

I learned more about Asheville on this tour than I've learned in the numerous visits I've made over the years. Our assistant guide, Ethan, was equally delightful and helpful. We highly recommend this tour - particularly THIS summer - when concerns about Covid-19 are paramount. This small business is making every effort (sanitizer, masks, touch-free waiver forms, etc) to provide a safe, highly enjoyable experience. 5+++!!!

We live here in the area and wanted to check out the ebike experience, which was awesome! These are top-notch easy-step-through bikes with throttles to add a boost when needed (like stopping halfway up a hill and starting back up again.) The people at the shop are great - helpful and knowledgeable, and the owner, Torin greeted us on our return, thanked us for our business, and invited us to return - which we will! If you're looking for a fun activity, definitely book with The Flying Bike!

Informative tour, exciting ride!!

E bikes are the best way to see Asheville without a doubt. They are quiet, smooth, and with minimal effort, you can cover a lot of ground in very little time. Torin and his staff are safety conscious. I felt cared for and looked after throughout the entire ride.
