Seattle Brewery Tours
& Pub Crawls
Brewery tours & pub crawls are a sure fire way to have a great time in Seattle. However, please be mindful of your surroundings and respectful of the establishments while on your route. Here's some common questions we've been asked before. If you think of any other questions or have any concerns, just get in touch.
Where do we meet?
All rides start and end at 4425 Shilshole ave NW Seattle, Wa 98107. We are just to the right of the 14th ave boat launch and across from the maritime academy.
Attention brewery tour riders: Please make sure your ride has been confirmed before showing up. You will be notified via email with confirmation and further instructions. The tour is not official until atleast 8 riders have signed up.
Does the Cycle Saloon supply food or beverages?
No. Riders may bring on any permissible food or beverages they wish. We’ve got LOTS of space in the inside roof rack.
Can we drink while on the bike?
Drinking while on the bike is not permitted by the Cycle Saloon under any circumstances. Contrary to popular belief, drinking on the bike is the same as drinking in public and carries all the same consequences under the law if your busted for an open container. Each rider takes full responsibility for their actions and conduct while on the Cycle Saloon.
How many people ride? How many pedal?
The Cycle Saloon carries 16 passengers, plus the driver. There are 5 pedaling seats on each side, plus one non-pedaling seat over the rear wheels. There is also a bench in the back of the Cycle Saloon that seats three, plus one standee spot in the middle for the “dancer”.
Who drives & who’s in charge of the Cycle Saloon?
We always provide a driver. Our insurance provider requires it. If you act in a dangerous manner, you’ll be asked to get off and find you own way home.
One person on each tour is the "renter" and that person is the only person the driver answers to. Can you imagine 16 people arguing about when to leave the bar? We don’t want our drivers getting in the middle of that!
What’s the earliest / latest I can rent the CycleSaloon?
Hours of operation are generally between 10am and 10pm, unless by special arrangement.
What’s the least number of people required to operate the CycleSaloon?
The CycleSaloon has been pedaled on the flat with a tailwind with three people pedaling, but it isn’t much fun unless you have 8 or more. For the brewery tour we need at least 8 peddlers, so your ride is not confirmed and credit card not charged until we hit the magic number!
What’s the fastest the CycleSaloon can go?
On the flat, the CycleSaloon travels at a maximum speed of approximately five miles per hour.
Can the CycleSaloon go up hills?
Little ones. The CycleSaloon was invented in the Netherlands, where it is very flat. Routes with grades greater than 5-6% for any extended distance may require riders to get off and push. None of the hills on our routes have required pushing (thus far….)
Does the CycleSaloon run all year long?
YES! Although the summer months are our busiest, we love to take cycle saloon rides any time of the year. Check our website and Facebook page to see off season specials.
Who can’t ride the CycleSaloon?
The CycleSaloon has a minimum height requirement of 5’3″ and a maximum weight limit of 300 pounds for each person on the bike seats. The back seat is perfect for those who don’t fit within these height and weight limits.
All riders must be at least 21 (unless by special arrangement) and provide valid identification. However, the Brewery tour bike has a few adjustable seats! So, those under 5’3 who like beer can finally have a chance at the pedals!
