Honestly- this is the most fun I have ever had on a tour! It was worth every damn penny and I plan to do it again next time I visit!! Our tour guide Faith, was so much fun! We learned a lot about the area, stopped to view art and take some great photos. The bikes are crazy fun!!!

This was my third and my wife's fourth bike-and-eat Rocket Electrics tour. Loved them all. Coopers BBQ and Via 313 pizza were my favorite stops this time. Highly recommended all around.
