What Reviews Say

"Go ahead and book this! You wont't be sorry! When you can make 10, 64 year old women happy, all at the same time, you may  have witnessed a miracle in the making.  Our bike trip was so much fun. Eric was full of energy, informative and patient! We  had some nerves going in since most of us hadn't been on a bike in the last decade, but in less than 5 minutes we felt like pros. We were zipping up and down the streets and learning all the while. Eric knows a lot about Wilmington and its history and he made the tour fun.  Please DON'T SKIP THIS TOUR!  It was the highlight of our stay!"

Book Quickly!

Tours are booked on a "First Come, First Serve" basis.

All tours are initially scheduled simultaneously, to give as many options as possible.  However, once a particular tour is booked, all other tours scheduled for that date and time are removed from the calendar. I am a local, small, veteran owned, one person tour company and I am booked almost everyday, so don't think about it, just book it! Be sure you don't miss out on your tour!

 

If you don't see availability for your desired date/time, just give me a call or email me, and perhaps I can work something out.  I have magic like that!

We are proud to announce a new partnership with 3 Wheel Therapy!

Using a custom built TRIKE, 3 Wheel Therapy is a non-profit providing bike rides to individuals who are unable to ride a traditional bicycle due to a loss of coordination, balance, disability, or fear.

If you have a loved one with whom you'd love to share a tour, and they may need the assistance of 3Wheel Therapy, please contact me with at least 2 weeks notice to coordinate.  

The TRIKE rider will ride for FREE! A voluntary donation towards 3 Wheel Therapy is suggested.

Tour Highlights

How it all Works

  • After you book your tour, you will receive an email giving you the meet up location for your tour.

     

  • Once you meet up with your tour at the designated location, your guide will talk you through bike safety, etiquette, and general precautions for the tour.

     

  • Your guide will then escort your group to multiple locations around downtown Wilmington and beyond, including 2 breweries and a few great photo stops along the way.                              

  • Cruising around town on our E-bike is so easy.  But don't worry, our bikes ride more like a traditional bicycle as opposed to a motorcycle, so as long as you can ride a bike, you’ll be able to use the E-Bike. Each E-bike comes equipped with a storage bag on the bike to carry personal items, "to go" beer,  etc. Again, there’s minimal exertion with the E-Bike so you don’t have to wear athletic clothes, just something you can comfortably ride in. Be advised that we strongly discourage flip flops for this tour. 

     

  • Our guided tours let you enjoy a leisurely ride around Wilmington while still giving you enough time to enjoy the brewery scene. The actual time spent riding the E-Bike is between 2.5-3 hours and covers a distance of around 12 miles.

     

  • To give everyone the best experience possible, we limit our tours to groups of 2-12
