This Bike & Brew Tour Is The Ultimate Washington Experience
Washingtonians are known for many things, and their love for exercise and good craft beer are two of them. And one amazing company in Seattle offers both, (almost) at the same time. If you’ve never taken a Cycle Saloon for a spin, we’ll give you a few good reasons to saddle up and go for a ride.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The Cycle Saloon is a 16-passenger pedal-powered structure, and it's magnificent.
This is exactly what it looks like -- you get to pedal your way through the streets of Seattle from brewery to brewery.
The bike saloon seats 16, and the company recommends bringing at least eight passengers.
Trying to pedal around with fewer than eight is just too much work.
Drinking alcohol on the bike itself is not permitted due to state law -- however, the company provides an official driver.
All you need to do is focus on pedaling in between beers. Also, you're welcome to bring plenty of snacks and non-alcoholic beverages onboard.
So how does it work? It's all pretty simple (and fun).
Pick your friends, set a date, and choose your tour. The routes focus on Ballard or Fremont breweries, and you can choose between public and private tours. You'll designate one of your party members to make the final decisions (imagine trying to get 16 people to agree on when to leave a brewery).
The Cycle Saloon is a great pick for birthdays, bachelor parties, and bachelorette fun.
It's also used for team-building fun with co-workers and groups of couples who are looking for a unique date.
Best of all, these fun-filled tours are pretty affordable.
Public tours cost just $30 per seat, and private tours are $360 total ($400 on weekends). Other than that, you'll just have to buy your own beer.
The Cycle Saloon operates year-round, seven days a week, from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
While summers are the most popular time to ride, you can rent your saloon anytime.
Address: 4425 Shilshole Avenue NW, Seattle, WA, 98107
