The newest party bike in Lexington is the Thirsty Pedaler. What a way to do a pub crawl! They provide  a driver and the bike... you provide the party. This beautiful 15 passenger bike is equipped with a sound system and adjustable seats. Great for birthdays, bachelor or bachelorette parties, corporate events or just a night out with friends.

Do a two hour tour of downtown Lexington on one of two routes. About half your time will be spent pedaling, and the other half enjoying one of their partner bars along the route.

 Thirsty Pedaler What's New

Join the fun aboard the "Big Blue Pedaler" featuring brewery tours, family day tours, historic tours and much more. Check out their routes and their schedule and book a tour at www.bigbluepedaler.

You can book several seats, or the whole bike. Take a pre-arranged tour or create your own itinerary. You can also secure the Big Blue Pedaler for special bookings such as sporting events, wedding events, corporate outings or promotional rides.
