With cooler weather finally upon us, there is no better way to spend an afternoon than a bike ride with your loved one. Tour St. Pete offers an electric bike tour for couples through the beautiful St. Petersburg and is a must-do next time you are in the area. Couples will follow their guide through the many waterside parks, the historic downtown, and up into beautiful, more secluded areas of St. Pete. Take in the beauty of this wonderful city, feel the breeze in your hair, and learn a little bit of history along the way.
Although a traditional bike is a great, riding one of these electric bikes is an even better way to move around a city. With the option to pedal normally or get a little help from the electric throttle, this is the perfect tour for all couples.
The bike tour starts at the famous Vinoy Park
Couples will bike along the water, passing other bikers, runners, dog walkers, and yogis stretching in the grass. There is nothing more “St. Pete,” than Vinoy Park and is an ideal place to begin the ride. You will then continue down towards the Dali Museum, hearing unique stories of the area and discovering hidden gems along the way. Around this time your legs may be getting a little tired, which is why the e-bikes are so great. Twist that throttle and you’ll be flying again – moving towards more bayside parks and neighborhoods such as Tropical Shores and the infamous tree-filled, historic Driftwood.
Flip around and head back downtown, pedaling through the beautiful USF St. Pete campus as a shortcut. Next, a quick stop at St. Pete’s famous shuffleboard courts to hear some more history and hop back on your beloved e-bike. Ride through the busy bars and restaurants of downtown before making that last stretch back to Vinoy, riding blissfuly through Old Northeast. The tour itself is about 2.5 hours, which allows couples to really see all of what St. Pete has to offer.
Whether you are a local or visiting, it is guaranteed you will learn something new on this tour and have a lot of fun while doing it.
The tours are small, with only about 2-7 people in each group, which makes it intimate. You and your loved one will meet interesting new people that will make the tour even more worthwhile. The guide themselves are also friendly, knowledgeable of the area, and respectful of all bike paces and personal needs. And for only $53 per person, you can’t beat this bike tour.
If you or your loved one are worried about the e-bike, it is easy to maneuver and extremely safe. It looks like a traditional bike and rides like one too. If you have doubts however, you guide will make sure you are perfectly comfortable before the ride starts. And trust me, once you get started, the beauty of the city will immediately distract you from all fears.
