Local recommendations & suggested routes provided

In addition to leading awesome tours, The Flying Bike is proud to rent out our fleet of Pedego electric bikes. If you would like to explore Asheville on your own or want to extend the amount of time with our electric bikes, we do a limited amount of rentals or “self-guided” tours each day.

Rental Details

Price:

$62/bike for a half-day
$82/bike for a full-day

Rather than following our usual private tour route, a custom tour allows for a bit of flexibility. If you’re an Art Deco enthusiast, we can tailor your tour to focus on all the Art Deco architecture that Asheville is renowned for. If culture is your thing, we won’t miss out on all the art studios and breweries that inhabit Asheville’s diverse neighborhoods. Tell us about your interests and we’ll design a unique tour route that includes all of the sites we think you’ll love.


Availability:

Daily, between February 15-December 15


Pickup/drop-off location:

Pick-up is outside the 3 bay garage. Our shop is easy walking distance from downtown Asheville. If you’re driving, there is parking in the gravel lot for $3/day. You can also find free and metered parking on the surrounding streets.

Weather contingency:

In the event of inclement weather, we will contact you an hour before your scheduled rental to see if you’d still like to ride. If you decide against it, we can reschedule your rental for another time/day or provide a full refund.

For your safety and enjoyment, we do not ride in heavy rain, thunderstorms, or snow. If the weather is questionable, we will contact you at least 1 hour before the tour to discuss your options.

The Pedego Boomerang Plus is lowest step-through electric bike on the market, which means it’s easy to mount and comfortable to ride! With both pedal assist and throttle power, it will help you up those Asheville hills! The best thing about this bike is you can choose how much pedal assist you’d like, so you can get a workout or relax and let the motor do the work for you.
