FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Is It and How Does The Bike Work?
The Tiki Themed Party Bike is a 14 passenger, pedal powered bicycle/vehicle. The Fresno Pedal Company conducts guided tours throughout the Tower District and the Historic Downtown Fresno area. 10 out of the 14 seats have pedals to propel the Party Bike forward. It's also equipped with a back bench (with no pedals) that is capable of seating two people. The average speed is 5 mph and tops out at a blistering 7 mph!!!! The Fresno Pedal Company will provide a designated (sober) driver and tour guide to take you on your ride in a safe and professional manner.
Drinking on the Bike!?!
Yes! Alcoholic beverages are allowed on The Fresno Pedal Company Tiki Bike. All participants must be 21+ with current/valid CA identification card or passport that must be presented at beginning of the tour or shuttle. We are not allowed to serve you, but no WORRIES!! You can BYOB and pedal to plenty of great watering holes to wet your whistle!!! The Fresno Pedal Company can only allow beer or wine (no hard liquor) in its unopened, original packaging. Glass containers are not allowed, but we will provide one disposable cup for each passenger. The Tiki bike is equipped with a keg sized barrel to store beverages.
How Do the Tours Work?
You have the option of booking individual seat(s) for the Tower District or Downtown Fresno Packages for a shared tour. There is a minimum of 6 riders to conduct these tours. When you book one of these packages, you have the option to vote for the 2-3 destinations you would like to ride to. We will be at each establishment for approximately 30-45 minutes (time permitting). Or you can reserve the entire Tiki Bike by booking the Funner-Est Private Party Package for any occasion. This option works the same way as the other two packages. The difference is that it's your private tour for you and your group. You don't have to vote, you choose your destinations, and if you're having fun at an establishment, you can stay longer if you'd like. Oh yes! You can also be the DJ and choose the tunes from your own personal phone/device while on the Party Bike!
The Fresno Pedal Company are also working on different tour options. Locations and the time of tours are subject to change.
