What time does the tour start and what if I am late? Since this is a guided group bike tour, we start right at 10am and goes to 1:30pm. Call the number listed on your ticket with any issues later than that.
How old do I have to be to attend an event? Since our tours will involve alcohol, we only offer our tours to adults aged 21 and over. Please bring your State Identification or driver's license to present to your tour guide upon arrival. Motor City Brew Tours follows all state of Michigan liquor/consumption laws.
Do I get to drink alcohol during the bike tour? This is a bike tour about Detroit history and not a drinking tour. We reward your day of exercise and education with beers at the end of the tour. We support responsible biking and do not encourage drinking during our bike tours, but have no problem rewarding it at the end of the tour!
How many tickets are available per bike tour? We limit the tickets to 20 per event. We feel this size of group is ideal for guided bike tours. This is a paid tour. The tour guides and staff are there to support the tour guests who paid for this experience.
How far do we bike and is it hard? The bike tour routes are 8-15 miles, on flat paved road surfaces. We will ride on the road, bike lanes, sidewalks and bike paths. The distance varies depending on the tour you pick. We will have a tour guide to set the pace up front and a person in back to make sure we all stay together. We ride a relaxing pace to help you learn about the history in Detroit, soak in the scenery and enjoy time with friends!
