Experience the magic of Roanoke's winter hot spots on our e-bike tours, designed to keep you cozy and pedaling through the colder months. Whether we are by a crackling fire, sipping a hot beverage, or in a warm storefront, our tours showcase the best of the season!
We'll start at our shop, ensuring everyone is familiar and comfortable with our e-bikes before embarking on the Roanoke River Greenway. We recommend dressing in comfortable layers and bringing gloves that you can still operate bike brakes with, we will provide the e-bikes, helmets and hand warmers. Our e-bikes come with baskets for carrying extra layers or items purchased along the tour, so feel free to bundle up without worry!
Our journey begins down the greenway towards south Roanoke and the Crystal Springs neighborhood. Our first stop is Sweet Donkey Coffee, offering signature lattes, coffee, and delightful baked goods. It's the perfect spot to warm up and enjoy a cozy atmosphere.
Nearby, Crystal Springs Grocery Co and Yard Bull Meats provide opportunities to grab tasty treats or holiday gifts.
Next, we'll hop on the Mill Mountain Greenway, heading downtown for a stop at chocolatepaper, a star city favorite for fine chocolate and holiday gifts. A few blocks away lies 16 West Marketplace, a hub with something for everyone: coffee, crafts, food, music, and shopping.
Depending on time and daylight, we'll either make a short ride back to our shop or venture into the Grandin neighborhood on our way back. In Grandin, the Roanoke Co+Op and The Jolly Grape offer more opportunities for holiday shopping or indulging in treats.
The price includes e-bike rental and a guide. Please arrive 15 minutes early, prepared to ride, so we can cover bike instructions and keep the tour on schedule. We aim to return to our shop before nightfall, allowing you to enjoy the full experience.
