Campus and Downtown

Please message us about your event and what it is you have in mind. We'd be more than happy to accommodate if we are not already booked!
Bringing Alcohol is always only an option, obviously not a requirement. We have a tour time of 9:00 AM, substitute with Coffee! BYOB (Bring Your Own Beer or wine)
You can bring your beverages of choice, including alcohol. If you can premix, mixed drinks before hand, that saves us a lot of time on the road! All drinks must be consumed from foam or plastic cups, which we provide!
We Do provide a Cooler, Ice and Cups! Upon arrival we will place all drinks into our on board cooler. We do this to save space inside the bike so we can maneuver to each rider conveniently.
Any beverage remaining after the tour, will be returned to the owner. If there is open alcohol remaining, the alcohol will be sealed and placed in a State approved sealed alcohol bag for legal transportation home.
The server on each tour has the right and responsibility to restrict serving alcohol to any passenger that shows signs of over intoxication or inappropriate behavior.

Any other reason a tour does not commence on its scheduled time, will always by default result in a reschedule upon a date and time selected by you.

All refunds must be requested by email or phone communication to verify whether you're looking to reschedule or proceed with a refund.
When booking our bike, you will have the option to purchase Tour Insurance for $25.00. Purchasing this Insurance package grants you the option of a Refund for the purchase price of the ride, on the occasion that the weather restricts the ride (heavy rains, severe cold, hail, thunderstorms, tornado). The Insurance is never reimbursed. If you decide to not purchase the insurance, in the event the ride is rained out you will be able to reschedule at a later open date. Tour Insurance does not cover cancelled tours due to lack of involvement. This insurance MUST be purchased the same date you schedule your booked tour. It cannot be added on later.
