A New Way to Carol with the BierCycle Caroling Tour

“Oh the weather outside is frightful, but pedaling the bike is so delightful…”

Not how you remember the song going? It could be the new version you start singing if you embark on a BierCycle Adventure.

Year-round BierCycle offers group excursions through Stillwater on a 13-person bike, however, none sound quite as fun to me as the Caroling Tour. On this you’ll pedal through the historic downtown, bringing beer, wine, or cocoa to sip on, all while belting out your favorite holiday classics. There will be a tour guide to help steer, or, perhaps on this tour, help with harmonies, but the pedaling is up to 10 of you (the three seated on the back just get to enjoy the ride).              

The tour will only be offered two more dates this year—December 20 and 27—with two 35-minute tours heading out each day. If you can’t make one of those, don’t worry, you can book a private tour anytime and take BierCyle’s suggestion for an equally festive theme like Ugly Sweater Party or Winter Wonderland. And if you spontaneously get inspired to sing, whose going to stop you?

Info: $12 per person; registration required.
