{What is a custom tour?}

Rather than following one of our typical tour routes, a custom tour allows for some flexibility. If you’re an Art Deco enthusiast, we can tailor your tour to focus on the architecture that Asheville is renowned for. If you’re a foodie, we’ll be sure to add in our favorite bites in town. Sustainability tours and brewery tours have also been popular requests. Asheville has no lack of things to see and off-the-beaten-path adventures. Tell us about your interests and we’ll design a unique tour route that includes all of the sites we think you’ll love.


Time:

Available by request daily, year-round. It is recommended that you book in advance for any group tour to guarantee availability.


Meeting point:

We will meet outside the 3 bay garage. There is parking in the gravel lot for $3/day. You can also find free and metered parking on the surrounding streets.

Upon request, we can arrange tours to leave directly from your hotel or B&B. This is possible from most hotels in downtown, North and West Asheville, provided there is a safe route to travel by bike.


Duration:

Approximately 2.5 hours. Trip time can be customized to your needs.

Have a small group of 5 people or less, but still want to travel with only your party or design a custom tour? We can take care of you! Price will depend on party size and your requests. Please contact us with your needs, and we will make a plan to show your group an amazing time.

The Pedego Boomerang Plus is the lowest step-through electric bike on the market, meaning 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. We offer cargo bikes and child seats as well. Those who are not old enough to ride an electric bike on their own or do not feel comfortable doing so are welcome to ride as a passenger on another guest’s bike.


We provide:

Electric bike • Helmet • Cold spring water in an eco-friendly reusable bottle • Rear cargo bag with rain cover • Ponchos for unexpected rain • Optional front basket • Bike locks for optional stops
