Frequently Asked Questions
We've got you covered...
What is the Pedal Parlor? / How does it work?
Round up a group of fun friends and come check out our pedaling pub crawl tours. Bikes can fit up to 16 people.
We will meet you, you hop on board, then we drive (you pedal) to 2-4 bars and we spend 20-30 minutes at each bar and pedal to the next one!
ALL TOURS ARE 2 HOURS LONG
We got you covered, sober yet fun driver provided.
Can we do it with less than 16 people?/
Whats the difference between private and public tours?
Yes! You can do it with less than 16 people. To run a tour we require 8 people minimum. (Make sure the 8 are willing and able to pedal!)
If you book by the seat, it is possible you will be paired with another party. Don't be shy, make new friends!
If you choose the Private Party option you will have the whole bike to yourself and can have up to 16 people.
How much does it cost?
It will be between $15 - $22 a person, depending on the day of the week and group size.
We now take deposits!
You now don't have to pay FULL price upon check out for a Private tour.
DEPOSIT POLICY: We will hold a Private Tour spot with the amount deposited. Deposits are NON-refundable; however, they are transferable 3+ days before the tour time. There is a deposit convenience fee of $40 added on to the original price of that tour time's full price. (E.g. $280 + $40 fee + tax). The whole price is SET no matter how many people show up to your private party. The remainder of the balance can be paid over the phone prior to the tour date OR upon arrival.
What alcohol do y'all serve?
We DO NOT serve any alcohol! It is against SC state law for a vehicle (or gigantic bike) to serve on public roads. This is not uncommon. Only about 5% of party bike companies in the U.S. can actually sell you beer on the bike. We promise you will get plenty to drink at our awesome bar stops! : - )
Note: See "Special Event" section below.
