There is surely no better way to see the battlefield than by bike. For a start, it is safe and easy terrain, rolling but not steep, and the surfaces are beautifully smooth and quiet. Unlike a car trip, where you constantly get in and get out, cutting yourself off from the sights, sounds and smells of the open air, with... More

We decided to do this on our own, without a guide and so hired two bikes by the hour. We had lots of useful advice and a map. This suited us, as we were happy to do the reading and research ourselves and moving around the battlefield by bike added to our understanding of the terrain. When we got back... More

I have never visited Gettysburg prior to our weekend trip on October 18th. Initially from driving through the area, I was surprised by the expanse of the area and where the fighting took place. But going on the bike tour was such an incredible and educational experience, I would highly recommend this to anyone. We went with our Scout Troop... More

My wife and I took the Grand Tour on Wednesday (10/2), during the government 'shut down'. My first comment would be about the people at GettysBike. They were very professional and considerate and did everything with integrity. We discussed the situation before we started the tour and trusted them to do things right. We worked with Kelly on the business... More

We took this bike tour September 19 and couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. First, the customer representative Kelly and the guide Dean were professional, courteous, and friendly. First, Kelly made sure that we were equipped with good bikes.When I commented that mine wasn't shifting smoothly, she got me another bike right away. Our guide was considerate of... More

My husband and I took the 'Yanks' tour yesterday afternoon, we couldn't stop talking about how great it was! We arrived and found out we were the only 2 booked for the tour, Kelly signed us in and Bob got us set up with some bikes. He gave us a quick basic rundown of how they worked and some safety... More

Of all the tour options offered in the area, I am quite pleased that I chose this avenue. The weather was perfect, the guide extremely informative, and doing something totally out of the norm made the experience even that much more fun. Kelly was excellent at answering all of my questions prior to booking the tour, while our tour guide... More

We found this family owned business by "googling" bike tours of Gettysburg. Explored their website but did not complete my registration due to questions about rain cancellation, etc. Then I forgot about it, but thankfully they contacted me!!! What a fantastic tour, our guide (wish I could remember his name), was wonderful. We are from VA and the other couple... More

This was an awesome ride! The bikes and equipment were excellent, even better than my bike at home. The folks were friendly and informative. Rather than driving around the battlefield, I felt that biking enabled us to be a part of the experience. We took the Yanks tour and except for one hill, it wasn't too strenuous. My wife walked...

For the most part there is little traffic esp out of town. our guide Bruce was excellent. he was very knowledgeable and rode a nice pace. I great way to stay in shape as well. Our tour was almost 4.5... More
