Stop At: The Flying Bike, 225 Coxe Ave, Asheville, NC 28801-4006

Join us on a fun-filled and informative bike ride around downtown Asheville! Meet us at our shop in the heart of the up-and-coming South Slope amidst the breweries, art galleries and restaurants that are making a name for this neighborhood. After putting the electric bikes to the test on a short ride up the slope, we will ride downtown past some of the unique local shops and businesses that make Asheville so different from any other city in the region.
• Our first stop will be at the amazing Basilica of St. Lawrence, a masterpiece of local architecture built by Rafael Guastavino, whose work is featured in Grand Central Station and the Biltmore Estate. We’ll have the chance to go inside and explore the impressive structure, which features the largest unsupported dome in North America.
• From there we will ride down the quiet streets of the Historic Montford Neighborhood alongside some of the most beautiful grand old homes in Asheville. We’ll then take the peaceful Reed Creek and Glenn’s Creek Greenways past UNC Asheville before starting the climb through North Asheville neighborhoods up to the historic Grove Park Inn. We will walk through the Inn and get a magnificent view from the Sunset Terrace.
• After heading back downtown, we’ll stop in Pack Square, where Asheville was originally founded. Here is a perfect vantage point to learn about Asheville’s history and its abundant art-deco architecture, the second largest collection in the country. Our final stop will be in the heart of the South Slope, where we will share about the recent history of Asheville, its challenges and triumphs

Duration: 2 hours

  • Richie taught us a lot about the city and surrounding area and made it a really fun trip! The bike is extremely powerful and even on the steepest hills I didn’t have to pedal and could use the throttle if I wanted. Add to your Must Do list!

  • A neat way to see Asheville and enjoy the sites and sounds up close. The electric bikes provide the chance to get as much exercise as you choose, but also the "boost" to get up the hill or just glide along and enjoy the scenery. The Owner is your guide, and creates a neat atmosphere of fellowship as he shows you the beautiful and historic Asheville area. Highly recommend the tour for you and your family!!

  • Guides were clear, caring, knowledgeable and fun
    They brought us to key points and learned more than previous tours
    I would say book
