Denver City and Public Arts Tour
One of the best ways to see downtown Denver, this guided bike tour highlights historic and public buildings, architecture, sports stadiums, public art and parks.
Twilight Tour (summer only)
Watch the sun go down and observe the play of light on the city, all while seeing the same exciting sights covered on the Denver City and Public Arts Tour.
Bike and Brew Tour
See the major sights of downtown Denver, then add on the neighboring River North Art District (RiNo) for its mural-adorned alleyways and breweries. You’ll stop to sample craft beer at a favorite watering hole. Guests are responsible for their own beer tab and must be over 21 to sample the beer (though this tour is by no means limited to those over 21).
Historic Neighborhoods and City Parks Tour
Denver is full of fascinating architectural gems, which you’ll discover on this tour of its oldest neighborhoods. Your guide will also mix in some gorgeous city parks with spectacular views for good measure.
If you haven’t tried it yet, experience the childlike glee of an electric bike. Pedal-assist gives you a more natural feeling as it automatically applies power when needed, or kick in the electric power manually (using the hand throttle) when you need a little boost. Pedego lets you experience this firsthand with rentals at their Denver locations — or on a tour from their Boulder location (about 30 minutes northwest of Denver).
Best of Boulder E-Bike Tour
A friendly guide will greet you at Pedego’s shop in historic downtown. Then you’ll glide along the Boulder Creek path with options to see Boulder’s top sights: Boulder Canyon, the University of Colorado’s campus, the Flatirons mountains and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
