Overview
Explore Philadelphia on a bicycle with a 3.5-hour tour of the city’s most beloved sites. Pedal alongside your guide as you loop through the city, and pause to take in the Philadelphia Museum of Art before riding a scenic river trail to Rittenhouse Park. Learn about Philly history and culture at Washington Square Park, the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, and enjoy a pace and route that’s tailored to your group’s needs. This small-group tour ensures a personal experience, and offers a fun, active way to visit Philly’s essential highlights.
What to Expect
Begin the tour in the Fairmount neighborhood of Philadelphia, about a mile north of Center City. You'll travel counter-clockwise around the city, with one of the first stops being the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Ride the Schuylkill River Trail down to Rittenhouse Park, stop over on South Street and the Italian Market, and then head over to Old City.

You'll stop to discuss the history of Pennsylvania Hospital, Washington Square Park, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and more! The way back is determined by the pace, skill level, and interests of the group. Large groups will have a "sweep" ride in the back - this is someone who can block traffic for the group, fix any issues that may arise on your bicycle, and make sure no one gets left behind!

The minimum age to book a tour is 18, but youth 14 and up are welcome to join as long as they are with a parent or guardian.
