Hello there, pedal enthusiasts! I’m Ken Szal, the visionary behind Buffalo’s one-of-a-kind pedal party tour business. At the sprightly age of 57, I embarked on this exhilarating journey in 2014, swapping my social worker hat for a captain’s cap. Why, you ask? Well, retirement wasn’t about slowing down for me; it was an opportunity to speed up the fun and create something truly unique for the vibrant city of Buffalo.
Having dedicated my career to serving the developmentally disabled as a social worker, retirement was a chance to shift gears and explore life from a different perspective. Buffalo, with its rich cultural tapestry, was missing something—a distinctive and lively way to explore the city. I envisioned a pedal-powered adventure that would add an extra layer of joy to the already festive atmosphere of Buffalo.
And so, in 2014, I founded Buffalo’s first pedal party tour business, pioneering a concept that was as refreshing as a summer breeze by Lake Erie. Nine years later, we continue to pedal our way through the heart of Buffalo, bringing people together for unforgettable experiences.
Retirement wasn’t about kicking back; it was about finding fulfillment in unconventional ways. The pedal party business became my passion project, a way to spend time that was anything but ordinary. As the pedal mastermind, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting incredible individuals from all walks of life, creating special memories one pedal at a time.
Sure, it hasn’t been all smooth sailing—or should I say, smooth pedaling. Balancing the business with my love for concerts and parties has been a bit of a juggling act. Yet, here we are, nine years strong, and the challenges only make the victories that much sweeter. The constant evolution keeps things exciting, and the reward lies in the smiles and laughter echoing through the streets of Buffalo.
As we celebrate nine years of pedal-powered joy, the journey is far from over. We remain dedicated to providing Buffalo with a unique and thrilling way to explore the city. Our commitment is unwavering, driven by the passion to make every tour a memorable adventure.
Whether you’re a local looking for a new way to experience Buffalo or a visitor seeking an unforgettable adventure, hop on board and join the pedal party! Let’s make memories, share laughter, and pedal our way through the vibrant streets of Buffalo.
Cheers to nine years of pedal-powered fun and many more to come!
