About Florida Fun Bikes
Florida Fun Bikes is a party on wheels. Think of it as a party bus, but better! Derrick Robinson and his fiancee Amber founded the company after going on bike tours in other cities. When they discovered that these large, pedal-powered vehicles have been popular in Europe for more than 17 years, they decided that Gainesville was in need of them! They are 100% eco-friendly and are a fun and unique group activity perfect for families, bachelor and bachelorette parties, friends, and more!
About the Tours
Each Florida Fun Bikes Tour is 2 hours long and you will stop at 2-3 places. When you’re with the company, you’ll usually get food and drinks specials at these spots! Each bike has room for 10 peddlers and 6 non-peddlers. Your tour guide will be your driver, making it fun and safe for everyone! While you can’t drink alcohol while you are on the bike itself, you can bring snacks, other drinks, and any props you think will make your excursion more fun.
How Much Does it Cost?
Florida Fun Bikes offer private rides for $300 Sunday through Thursday and for $350 Friday through Saturday. If you don’t have enough people to fill a tour, don’t worry! You can go on a Mix N’ Mingle Tour for $30 a person. You never know who you’ll meet in your group! Give them a call or book online to reserve your spot during your stay at Sweetwater Branch Inn.
