The Thirsty Pedaler has a minimum height requirement of 5’3" for pedalers (the seats are not adjustable.) There is a maximum weight limit of 300 pounds for people on the bike seats. The back seat is perfect for those who don’t fit within the height and weight limitations.

The Driver. If you act in a dangerous manner, you’ll be asked to get off.

The renter. Only one person can be a renter and that person is the only person the Driver answers to.

What happens in bad weather?

We run rain or shine. Be prepared for all types of weather situations; it can be quite fun riding The Thirsty Pedaler in challenging weather. If there is dangerous weather, however, The Thirsty Pedaler has the right to cancel the tour before or even during the tour to protect the passengers.

If it does rain, we have a roof that covers quite well, and we do provide free ponchos!

Does The Thirsty Pedaler run all year?

We run from March through the end of November. However, give us a call and if you have a special event outside of these dates, we can make exceptions.

What times does it run?

It can run from 10AM- 11PM. Check our booking tab and it will give you our specific times each day. If there is a time you really would like and we don’t have it listed, please call us and we will try to fit it in to our schedule.

Can I bring food or drink?

You can bring your own non-alcoholic drinks and snacks and we have room for small coolers on The Thirsty Pedaler. Remember, no glass, please.

What’s up with the liability waiver and offering bike helmets?

Riding The Thirsty Pedaler can be a dangerous activity, just like riding any bike. You should have a reasonable expectation that you could possibly fall off and scrape your knee. We offer bike helmets because it’s prudent. You don’t have to wear one — that’s totally up to you. But you do take responsibility if you bump your noggin’. Everyone signs a waiver stating they will take responsibility for their actions and follow the rules.  Please print and bring with you on the tour.  Each person must sign a waiver.

How do I get in on the fun, and how do I pay?

Go on our Book tour/Reservations tab and you can pick your date and time and pay online with your credit or debit card. You can also give us a call at 502-354-8822 if you would like to speak to us. One credit card per reservation please. It would be too crazy if 15 people called with 15 different credit cards for one reservation.

What do I wear?

Wear clothes that will be comfortable for the outdoor elements, however wear what you want as long as you will be comfortable pedaling. Bring an extra pair of shoes if that would easier.
