CAN WE PAY THE DAY OF? I AM SORRY ALL TOURS ARE PRE-BILLED THE MONDAY PRIOR. FOR A PRIVATE TOUR, IT GOES ON ONE CARD. WE CAN NOT SPLIT PAYMENTS ON PRIVATE TOURS. ONLY EXCEPTION WOULD BE IF YOU DO ONE CASH PAYMENT for entire tour AND HAVE IT ALL COUNTED AND READY BEFORE THE TOUR. WE STILL NEED A CREDIT CARD ON FILE, HOwever. you must notify us at time of booking that you want to do this, or it will be auto-billed the monday prior. no exceptions and no split payments. sorry.
PRICING- WEEKEND PRICES ARE $405 FOR A PRIVATE AND $32 FOR A SEAT ON A PUBLIC TOUR (PLUS 6% SALES TAX) WEEKDAY TOURS ARE $355 FOR A PRIVATE AND $30 FOR A SEAT ON A PUBLIC (plus 6% sales tax)
waiver- everyone must sign a waiver located on the waiver tab on our website. it is much faster to do it before your tour because it may take time out of your tour for everyone to do their waiver. our office does have a kiosk however if you are unable. (our office is only open weekends)
can i join late? if you have one person who can’t get there on time, they may join the tour in progress, but they must fill out a waiver and let the driver know.
can under 21 yrs old ride? no, i am sorry.
Can We bring Alcohol?
Yes. you can bring alcohol, but nothing glass. IF YOU BRING GLASS YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO BRING ON BIKE. PLEASE PROVIDE YOUR OWN COOLER AND ICE. ROLLING COOLERS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR EASE OF TRANSPORT.
do you sell or serve alcohol? no, sorry it is against state law.
Can small groups rent through The Thirsty Pedaler? Yes we do public tours, we will need a minimum of 6 to go whether you have six in your group or we can put multiple groups together to get our minimum. You will receive an email confirmation if we hit our minimum. If we don't, the tour will not go .
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE? I would arrive about 20-25 minutes before your tour starts. you will have to park in a garage or on the street, so please make time for that. on weekends the office will be open and you will need to check in before you can get on the bike. if it is a weekday tour or the office is closed, the bike will meet you in front of gordon biersch restaurant about 10 minutes before tour time.
I can't find where you are located? We are inside of 4th street live NEXT TO T-MOBILE INSIDE THE GLASS DOORS. if the office is closed, our bike will be right in front of gordon biersch about 15 minutes before tour time.
office hours- our office is mainly open on Friday evening and Saturday. we only open the office during tour times, so it can vary each week. please call if you have questions.
How does the route work? We start and end our 2 hour tour at 4th street live and stop at up to two bars along the way. You get to choose, or your driver can help you, what bars you would like to stop at Drink Specials are listed on our website.
Any tips for a good tour?
Yes a good playlist goes a long way. Also you want to be time efficient at your stops so instead of each person individually buying their drinks. Have one person collect $15 or $20 from each person and order the whole group's drinks at each stop. You will be happy you did.
TIPPING DRIVERS? OUR DRIVERS WORK FOR TIPS, SO A STANDARD TIP WOULD BE $3-$5 PER PERSON.
What is the cancellation POLICY? Cancellation requires 10 days before your tour for a full refund. IF YOU CANCEL WITHIN THE 10 DAYS ON A PRIVATE TOUR, YOU LOSE YOUR $100 DEPOSIT. ON A PUBLIC TOUR YOU ARE CHARGED $10 PER SEAT. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHARGE THE FULL AMOUNT IF YOU CANCEL WITHIN 24 HOURS.
WHAT IS THE RAIN POLICY? We have roofs on the bikes, so if it’s mild or medium rain you won’t even notice. We even offer free rain ponchos. If it’s severely thunder-storming, we can delay the start time, issue a rain check or refund, determined by The Thirsty Pedaler. Tours are never cancelled due to weather more than 2 hours from the start time.
lost items- we are not responsible for lost or stolen items. our drivers do their best to help the customers, but please make sure not to leave gift cards, phones, sunglasses, etc.. on the bike. thank you.
