By Errika Gonzalez
Looking for something fun to do this summer? We have the perfect idea for you, Buffalo Pedal Tours! Buffalo Pedal Tours is a fun way to experience the beauty of Buffalo with a pedal or cycle boat tour, while also enjoying a beverage, and the company of friends, family, or colleagues.
Buffalo Pedal Tours started in 2014 and quickly became one of the most sought-after activities in Buffalo. Tours are available seven days a week and operate through all seasons, so you can have a fun pedal tour any time of the year. They currently have six different bikes in rotation that can seat up to 14 people, and two large pontoon style cycle boats that can seat up to 18 people. They also have two sister companies that operate in Rochester and Syracuse.
Buffalo Pedal Tours offers a wide variety of different tours that are accommodating to all age groups so you can plan a fun night out with friends or a nice family event, the choice is yours. For a cycle boat tour there are two options: River History Tours and a Party Boat Cruise. The history tour is a fun way to learn about the rich history of Buffalo thanks to the educational tour guide. You will get an up-close look at the silos, naval ships, Buffalo lighthouse, and more.
Booking a party boat cruise is another fun way to enjoy the waterfront. You are guaranteed a fun time full of singing, dancing, and beautiful views. The boat does have a motor so peddling is not the main source to move the boat which means you can have a relaxing boat ride and pedal at your leisure.
For a pedal tour, you can choose from a Private Downtown, History, Art & Architecture, Canalside Pub Crawl Tour, or book for a special occasion and personalize your tour. The bikes have motors to assist with pedaling uphill, as well as a guide who is your “designated driver”. Depending on your tour you have the option to stop at two local bars, pubs, and or lounges to enjoy a beverage before you pedal your way through the city. Booking a history or art & architecture tour includes the opportunity to stop and explore different landmarks. The Canalside Pub Crawl is perfect for craft beer enthusiast, and you’ll be able to experience new restaurants and beer gardens. Have a special occasion to celebrate? Buffalo Pedal Tours can help with planning your event and a tour route that fits your interests.
Whether booking a bike or boat tour, each guest is welcome to bring two canned beverages, snacks, and a personalized playlist.
