A biking tour lets you see the city you love through different eyes.
See the Twin Cities from a bike seat. You’ll find that “Bicycle Friendly” Minneapolis-St. Paul and surrounding metro boast an abundance of natural and cultural highlights. Bike paths offer picturesque river views (don’t forget to bring your camera), vibrant forays into the downtown districts and, obviously, a fun and fit way to experience the region.
For the perfect tour on wheels, try The Fit Tourist, a Minneapolis-based group offering individualized and group tours through the heart of the city. (If pedaling isn’t your speed, they have walking tours too.) In two to three hours, you’ll see hidden gems of the city along with natural beauty and architectural wonder.
Founded in 2011 by an avid biker, Minneapolis by Bike also provides bicycle tours of the city. Choose from a number of themes such as the Historic Tour, Bike & Brew Tour, Lakes Tour and more. All tours leave from their brick-and-mortar location in downtown Minneapolis.
Speaking of beer, we have yet another unique way to experience the nooks and crannies of the Twin Cities—with a beer in hand. PedalPub® and Traveling Tap are two unique tour services that allow you to see the city and socialize with friends while getting in some exercise. Hop on one of the 16-seater group cycling bikes and cruise through downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul, the University of Minnesota’s iconic Dinkytown, across the Stone Arch Bridge and more.
Not feeling the group tour vibe? No problem. Nice Ride MN gives you the flexibility to hop on a bike and create your own personal tour of the Twin Cities. Our bike share program is easy and affordable, and the bike stations are never far with nearly 200 dock stations. Just look for the lime green machines, or download the Nice Ride Bike Share app for extra convenience.
