What to Expect on Your Tour
Big SLO Bike is a 14-person pedal powered party on four wheels! A trained company Captain steers and operates the brakes, lights and direction signals. The Big SLO Bike is 16 1/2 feet long, 6 feet wide and 8 1/2 feet high, and seats 14 Party Guests around a center table under a rooftop. If you don’t believe us, check out some photos or book a tour for yourself!
Big SLO Bike runs rain or shine, please dress for the weather. Please note we have an over-sized roof cover protecting you. If severe weather does occur, Big SLO Bike reserves the right to offer a future credit. We are not able to offer a credit if the tour has already started. We do need a minimum of 6 guests booked in order for the tour to still go. We will do our best to accommodate you and offer alternate time slots.
Our drivers work hard to make your experience one to remember and greatly appreciate tips. 10-20% is customary for private tours. 18% automatic gratuity is added for corporate functions.

Yes! We encourage you to take as many as you like, and be sure to hashtag #bigslobike.
Nope! No alcohol is allowed on the bike so you are good to go there. Just keep in mind the places you’d like to stop for those riders who are under 21. Your Captain can suggest stops where alcohol is served and people under 21 years of age are still able to join.
Absolutely! We have a stereo system with an auxiliary cords and bluetooth as well as iPhone cables, so bring your own phone or MP3 playlist OR your guide will provide a great playlist for you. All music MUST be socially appropriate. On tours, our guides will control the playlist in order to accommodate all guests.

It is no more dangerous than riding a regular bicycle. With that said, all guests ride at their own risk and will be required to complete a liability waiver ahead of time. We do not provide paper liability waivers (to avoid paper).
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Please avoid flip-flops or any shoes that may fall off. Stick to tennis shoes or sandals with straps. Think of what you would wear if you were riding a bike…But we can’t stop you if you show up wearing high-heels, just be ready to pedal!
No glass is allowed. No alcohol is able to be open or consumed on board the bike. No kegs are allowed on board at any time.
Due to the size of the bike, we can’t have less than 7 people on a tour.

It’s called the Big SLO Bike for a reason, this bad boy tops out at a blistering 12 mph. The bike is also equipped with electric assist, which is used at the Captain’s discretion to maintain a safe environment.
This is entirely up to you. We suggest checking with your doctor first. There is always the back bench where you can make everyone else pedal for you. You earned it.
