This tour uses ELECTRIC bicycles with pedal assist and throttle features which make going up hills and cruising the city a breeze. Because we travel by e-bike, we are able to cover a lot of ground with little effort! We include historic neighborhoods, landmarks, parks, art and theater districts, world famous graffiti alleyways, haunted houses, suffragette monuments, microbreweries and craft coffee shops, all while feeding you fun facts and historical tidbits about Denver's dark beginnings, heroines, body snatchers, underground passages and significant street names and the criminals they were named after.

To Celebrate our 6th season, we invested in brand new, top of the line e-bikes. We spent months investigating post COVID Denver. We talked to so many local businesses they know us by name. We drank too many coffees, beers and kombuchas, stayed out far too late on weeknights, and ate out way more than our doctors recommended. We explored in exhaustion both the day and nightlife scenes. You can rest assured, when we provide a recommendation, it is the real deal!
