Urban Bike Tours
What are they? Where are they? Why do one?
Whether you prefer to guide yourself, join a group, or customize your tour, bike tours offer a great introduction to an urban center. Exploring a city by bike puts you on the ground with the locals where you can experience the culture firsthand. Tours are styled in a range of ways. Some have a theme, such as historic sites or architecture, while others focus on local gems that are typically missed by the tourist’s radar.
Self-guided tours, such as those mapped out in pdfs by Nice Ride Minnesota, are great for people who like to wander at their own pace but appreciate some hints about the city’s architecture, wildlife, music and even an “I see dead people” tour!
