Biking Tours

Our mission is to introduce visitors and residents alike to the wonderful bicycle trail systems that allow us to ride into and around Minneapolis.  It is no surprise that in 2013, Bicycling Magazine rated Minneapolis as the number one biking city in the country and we’d like to show you why.  As part of our tour, we make sure you are properly fitted with a provided bike and helmet.

Regularly scheduled rides take about 2.5 hours.  Tours start at $39 per person, which includes the bicycle, helmet and tax.  To view the schedule and register, click on the Zerve button or call us at 507-533-5348.  If you are interested in a private tour, just call or email us and we will arrange a ride that suits your needs!

We ask that all children under 16 years be accompanied by a parent or guardian and due to bicycle stock, we cannot take anyone under 4 ft 10 in.  

Bike Tours start from 115 Main St SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414, just north of the movie theater entrance, along the historic St Anthony Main.  Look for our sign in the window right below the 3rd Ave Bridge.  There is parking along Main St. or in the ramp and lot behind St Anthony Main at the intersection of 2nd St SE and 2nd Ave SE.

Bikes, Beers and Brothels

This bike tour highlights the historic entertainment areas along the Mississippi Riverfront in Minneapolis from the 1860's to the early 1900's.  We will share the hidden history of the Madams who ran the brothels within the former red light districts, the Liquor Patrol Limits, the history of beer production and the resurgence of micro-breweries, the Purity Crusades to clean up the city and politics.  This leisurely bike tour will make 2 stops at local breweries for limited beer or soda tasting.  At the conclusion of our tour, you will be able to enjoy a full glass of beer or beverage of your choice.  Each participant will be given a $6 gift card to Mattie's on Main, which offers local beers on tap, a full food menu and is located about 1 block from our starting point.

This tour will take about 3 hours and costs $49 (bike, helmet and tax included - $45.50 + tax).  This tour is recommended for ages 18+ and you must be 21 and older for beer tasting.  It will be offered 1 to 2 times per week.  To view the schedule and register, click on the 'Buy Tickets at  Zerve' button below or call 507-533-5348.

I love riding my bike in Minneapolis and thought I'd seen everything. Then The Fit Tourist showed me much more.
