FAQ: Can we drink alcohol on the bike?

We encourage you to come up with ways for your group to get home safety after your experience. As you know no one should ever drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
how do we tip the guide?
We expect our staff to impress you from the moment you talk to us to set up your tour. Your guide graciously accepts cash or you can use the Cash App or Venmo App. The trip organizer traditionally collects the money for all the guests.
What is the refund policy?
Tours are only cancelled due to high wind or lightning during the trip. Refunds are issued to the credit card used to book the trip. Please be aware that once we refund the money to your credit card banks take up to ten days to release the money to you. That is out of our control.

Does bad weather prevent us from riding?
Weather is no problem for us, our large awning keeps guests dry. We have never missed a trip due to rain. The only weather exceptions are: lightning, strong winds, & snow and ice on the ground in the winter.
If severe weather does occur, which would make going on the bike dangerous, Buffalo Pedal Tours reserves the right to cancel the tour and offer the renter a rescheduled trip or store credit. No refund will be issued.
What if our pub crawl tour takes too long?
We are very good at getting back in time for the next group. The guide will tell you when to get back on the bike. If your group does not comply the tour renter will have a late fee applied to their credit card of $50 for each 15 minutes over the two hours.
You will be charged for any damage to the pedal bike during your trip. The tour renter will have the cost of the damage applied to their credit card.
Who’s in charge of the Pub Crawler?
Do I have to sign a liability waiver?
You should have a reasonable expectation that something could possibly happen. Signing the liability waiver is a requirement. Everyone should read the waiver before they sign it. We expect full compliance with the rules of the pedal tour and the rules of the road.
Should I be nervous about how fast this bike goes?
Not at all. The bike moves at the speed of a fast walk.
Can I make my own route for a Pub Crawler tour?
