The Big Red Pedicycle is a 16-passenger bike. This open air "tour bus" has seats lining both sides and a back bench for riders to sit on. Only instead of just sitting there, you pedal! Riders work together to casually pedal the Big Red Pedicycle around Philly and stop at historic sites during the day and popular pubs at night.

I just did this bike tour with a group of 11 girls for my best friend's Bachelorette Party and we all had an amazing time (even in the freezing weather)!! We booked a private bike for the Old City/Midtown Village Pub Crawl and it was perfect for what we wanted. We started at Silence Dogood's Tavern, then biked to another... More

Went in February with a few friends in town. Despite the cold, had an amazing time. The staff was very helpful, the tour guides were awesome and made some great memories.

What it comes down to, is it is what you make of it. If you and your friends you're pedaling with are fun, then you'll have a great time. If not, well then maybe it's not for you. The bars we visited were mediocre, but again-it was the group K was with that made the trip great.

Don't think that it's too cold to take a Big Red Pedal Tour in the winter. We had a blast on a January evening. Pedaling keeps you warm, as do the beverages at our stops. The guide Kyle was awesome. Looking for something different to do? This is it!

Our group of 5 women booked the old city pub tour to celebrate 2 of the ladies' birthdays. We were worried we'd be freezing and wore many layers, but it wasn't necessary. The pedaling (and laughing) kept us warm. We arrived at the meeting point and learned we were the only riders. We had a great time with our driver... More

Rode the bike with my bridal party so the bridesmaids and groomsmen could meet and hang out. It was an awesome time! So much fun. Expect to pedal, because that's the point of this excursion. You get plenty of time to grab a few drinks at the bars, but mind your time because it goes fast! It's a bar CRAWL... More

We took the Big Red tour and it was a total waste. Firstly, you must pedal the whole way and it is exhausting and very very slow. There is a tiny engine on the unit and it is pretty useless. In order to get anywhere ALL the riders must be fit able bodied to get it moving. We were planning... More

I was traveling solo and was quite a bit older than the rest of the crowd on the tour, most of whom were related to one another, but the young host and driver on the tour made a great and ultimately successful effort to bring me into the crowd. End result: a good time had by all, even me. Bars... More

I did the Old City pub crawl with several family members and we had a fun time. The only warning I'd give is to read their terms and conditions carefully. They say that if they cancel a tour due to weather, they won't give you a refund, just a raincheck. That's a horrible deal for out-of-towners who may not be... More

Great. Loved it. Always wanted to try this and had the opportunity. Although it was raining the day of the tour, we did not mind the showers, one boomer of a thunderstorm. Kept checking with Red Pedal to see if it was going to be cancelled. Reply was 'hardly ever cancel. We don't want to disappoint" It was safe enough.... More
