This 2.5 hour tour involves five 10 min segments of EASY pedaling via our solar-powered electric assist motor in between four, thirty minute restaurant/sightseeing stops.
*Note: A minimum of 6 people needed to pedal the bike with a maximum of 18 people in total (10 seats have pedals & 8 seats do not). This tour requires a minimum of 6 people in order to take place. Pedaling effort is EASY TO MODERATE - no hard pedaling on this tour.
Meet outside of Founder's Hall (6 Prince St., Charlottetown, PE C1A 4P5) 20 MINUTES BEFORE THE START OF THE TOUR for safety overview & Pedal Bus road rules.
- After a quick debriefing about the Solar Pedal Bus, we will pedal our way for a quick trip to our first stop - The Floating Food Court at Peak's Quay where passengers can enjoy the outdoor patio and will be treated to a delicious beef slider & ice cold beer.
- Next we will hop back on the Pedal Bus and travel up to Richmond St where we will stop to take in the sights & sounds of some live music and quick shopping OR go into the Confederation Center of the Arts to see the Model Parliament where the signing of Confederation took place & the Art Gallery OR the Basillica Church.
- After taking in a bit of history/culture/music, we will circle our way down to The Olde Dublin Pub for delicious local PEI mussels and local beer or red/white wine. *Note: Those with shellfish allergies can choose to have an alternate TBD.
- After fueling up (with delicious food, not gasoline because our ride is powered by the sun!) we will pedal our way up Queen St. to Kent St. and over to Hopyard where you will have one of their ever changing menu items and sample 2 local beers or red/white wine or a alcoholic "fancy" drink (or fountain pop).
After Hopyard, we will make a very quick stop into Craft Beer Corner by Upstreet (immediately beside Hopyard), where you will be able to purchase beer & other goodies to take with you on the Pedal Bus, for enjoyment AFTER the tour is over, as we make our way from Kent St. over to Prince St with some easy pedaling slightly downhill back to the starting point of our tour. While at Craft Beer Corner, you may want to go to the bathroom for a "very cool experience". We know those words are not ones you expect to hear together, but seriously - fun stuff! :)
