If you’re looking to experience the very best in Oregon culture, you absolutely must try Cycle Pub! It doesn’t get any more Oregonian than this: a huge group bicycle that doubles as a pub. You’ll have to see it to believe it!
Big Bikes and Small Bikes
Cycle Pub is operated only as private group tours, so you’ll need a group of at least four to experience it. Sorry, they don’t sell individual tickets, and you can’t just hop aboard if you see it cruising around. All rides require advance reservations, and tours last two hours. Most riders will need to pedal, though the Big Bike, with seating for up to 14 guests, has a few non-pedaling seats. But you’ll need 8 people to do the legwork! Smaller groups are welcome to ride the Small Bike (also known as Cycle Round), which fits 4 to 6 people. These unique bike vehicles come equipped with cupholders (of course) and stereo systems, as well as a professional Bike Pilot and guide (who obviously will not be drinking).
Where Would You Like to Go?
The choice is up to you and your group! While a pub crawl or trip down the Bend Ale Trail is the obvious choice, it doesn’t have to be all about alcohol. There are many great places to visit in downtown Bend, including family-friendly destinations. Riders must be a minimum of 12 years of age, and if any in the party are under 21, there cannot be any consumption of alcohol aboard the bike. Our professional Bike Pilots will help you customize your itinerary when you check in for your tour, so you don’t need to make the plan yourself in advance. Let them know what types of attractions you’d like to see!
“Anything Goes?” Not Exactly…
While Cycle Pub can definitely be a great party, it’s not quite a free-for-all aboard the bike. In fact, due to stringent licensing requirements, there are some specific rules that riders must abide by in order to enjoy the ride safely. Only certain types of drinking vessels are allowed (obviously no glass), no hard liquor is permitted on-board, and no consumption of cannabis products is allowed either. Check the website for a detailed list of what to bring (and not bring), as well as make sure to plan for safe transportation of your group after your tour is over. Consider staying in a great downtown Bend vacation rental, so you’ll be able to walk home!
