The e-bikes were in great shape, and we had a blast riding around Asheville. He showed us several routes we could take, and it was great being able to ride at 20mph uphill if we didn’t want t pedal as much. Highly recommended!
This was the best part of our trip to Ashville. We brought our six year old daughter and the owner ensured that the paths we took were both fun and an amazing experience for all of us. The bikes were in great shape and all around, I highly recommend you try it.
Torin took my husband and me on a tour today and we had a fantastic time. He is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Asheville and we learned so much. It was a wonderful way to introduce us to this city.
I especially appreciate Torin’s attention to our safety and comfort. The Flying Bike tour is a must do!
My husband and I took a tour with The Flying Bike. It was one of our favorite things we did our entire trip. The owner guided our tour, and when the other party he catered our ride to us. We loved seeing the sights and had wonderful conversations with our guide. I would love to come back with the rest of the family and do it again. The only suggestion I would make is do it at the beginning of the trip. You pick up a lot of helpful suggestions on things to do and places to see in Asheville. Thank you, Toren!
My tour with The Flying Bike was fantastic! There really is no better and more fun way to learn about and see the city than by biking around. The tour was very informative and the guides were super nice and made sure everyone was having a great time. If I could I would absolutely do this tour again – thank you Flying Bike!
Our group of 7 traveled all the way from Sewanee: The University of the South in TN to experience this bike tour among other sustainable attractions in the fun city of Asheville. Torin was a pleasure to coordinate with, he worked with our tight schedule, and a few scheduling hiccups to create a personalized tour for our students that highlighted several of the municipal sustainability efforts. He provided us with the opportunity to connect with two awesome community organizers and shared a new view of the city he was considering adding to the tour. Riding the electric bikes was a thrilling experience and a great way to tour the city despite the foggy/misty weather. 10/10 would recommend!!!
We had a great time today seeing Asheville and learning its history. Our guide, the owner, was very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. He did a fantastic job teaching us how the bikes worked and made sure each of us was comfortable operating the bike before starting the tour. We have been to Asheville many times, but I learned and saw so many new things, it was great!! You can pedal as little (as little as zero effort) or as much as you want, so all skill and fitness levels can enjoy together. I highly recommend this tour to anyone, whether you are new to Asheville, or just want to have fun riding an electric bike and learning more.
My husband and I have toured cities via walking tours, small charter vans, Segways, horse-drawn carriage, etc., but by far this was the most delightful and interesting tour we’ve taken. The peddle-assist electric bikes made going up Asheville’s many hills a breeze and allowed us to exert as much or as little energy as we wanted. Our tour guide was full of fascinating details and took us to places around town that I would have easily missed. He had terrific archival photos with him of how Asheville and its iconic buildings used to look, and that enhanced the day even further. We were lucky enough to have a perfect 60-degree sunny day and the whole experience was magic! Always felt safe. Would HIGHLY recommend.
My girlfriend and I lucked up with some warm weather in February and booked a tour during our 1-year anniversary getaway in Asheville. As we walked up to the meeting point, I could see the bikes ready to go and the owner, Torin, was standing nearby. Torin walked up with a big smile and introduced himself. We picked out some helmets, went over some formalities, and then discussed the bikes and its features. After a quick overview of the bikes, we had a chance to get a feel for the bikes in the parking lot before we embarked on the tour. Torin was very personable and full of knowledge; he pointed out things that I would have never noticed. He is that “cool school teacher” bringing life to what some would consider “dull material”. We had several stops at some awesome places and even had the ability to walk around and take pictures (Torin offered to take some photos for us to help avoid those awkward selfies). He provided water and stops for bathroom breaks. Bikes were easy to use, built to accommodate people of different shapes, sizes, and age. Bikes include governors so you do not whiskey throttle into a wreck. Will definitely book again! Thanks, Torin!
Torin took us on a great tour of Asheville. Very informative and scenic ride. Electric bikes are awesome! I have some knee issues and I had no problem with the hills due to the electric bike. Book your tour, you won’t be disappointed.
