Frequently Asked Questions
Q - Wait, WHAT? What’S A “PACIFIC PUB CYCLE”?
A - The Pacific Pub Cycle is a 14 person bike that helps folks explore an amazing diversity of hot spots. You can taste and sample beer, wine, spirits and small bites within the super eclectic Whiteaker/Brewery District of Eugene, Oregon. We steer and you peddle! Your energy moves the bike (with the occasional electric assist) and we stop at three spots during your two hour tour.
Q - Do we drink on the bike?
A - Short answer: No. Pacific PubCycle gets you from drink to drink, but no alcohol is allowed on the bike itself. We encourage you to have a drink while you are gathering with your group at Eugene Wine Cellars, and then it’s beverages and bites at each of the three stops along your tour. You can also tie a bow on your super fun time by gathering again at Eugene Wine Cellars before you say good-bye for the night. Drinks are not included with the tour, so bring some fun money.
*Please have a designated driver or use cab service, Lyft or Uber. NEVER drink and drive.
Q - Marijuana is legal in Oregon. Does that mean we can smoke or vape on the bike?
A - No. That is against the law because it is in a public place. Not allowed on the bike. Please, no tobacco products either. There are plenty of breaks for that, if you wish.
Q - HOW DO I GET ON THE BIKE?
A - There are two ways:
Single seats -Click on the “book now” button and choose “Join the Ride” to reserve your seat on the bike at $35 per seat. There needs to be a minimum of eight people to make the thing go. Once eight people have reserved their seats, it’s happening! Up to 14 seats can be sold for each tour. It’s a great way to meet new people and to rally your friends and family. Everybody can go to the site and buy their own seat. Easy Peasy!
Private bike rental - As long as you have a minimum of eight people in your group you might as well just rent the whole thing for a three stop, two hour tour. -Click on the “book now” button and choose the “Group Tour” option. It’s best (and easier to peddle) with more people. Go ahead invite your crew. We can fit up to 14 riders.
Q - WHAT HAPPENS IF NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE SIGN UP FOR MY TOUR?
A - We need to have at least eight people booked for a tour to happen. Trust us, teamwork makes the dreamwork. If the tour you chose is looking like you don’t have enough people, get the word out! We recommend you post, tweet, snap, whatever gets you to that magic number 8 (or more up to 14!). If still no dice, no biggie. We will help you choose another night and give that a try.
Q- CAN I GET MY MONEY BACK?
A - Sorry, there are no refunds. You can, however, just pick another day and time for a tour. Because it’s sort of a seasonal thing, it’s easier to fill the bike during the warm months. Another option could be to gift your seat to a friend as a gift. We can help you problem solve.
Q - DO YOU HAVE TO BE 21+ TO RIDE ON THE BIKE?
A - No. But for now, you need to be at least 18+. There are plenty of options for those not drinking! We offer tours with stops that offer Housemade sodas, kombucha, pinball, snacks, ice cream, and more!
Q - CAN I DO THIS AS A FUNDRAISER?
A - Heck yeah! We would love to help. Just e-mail us and we can explore options.
Q - WHAT IF IT RAINS?
A - It’s Oregon. It rains and we like it that way. Not to worry, the Pacific Pub Cycle is covered and will keep you mostly dry. Just bring a raincoat. All tours are rain or shine. (Sorry, no refunds)
Q - WHAT SHOULD WE BRING FOR OUR TOUR?
A - You are about to smile so much it hurts, so bring your positive attitude! Dress comfortably, and ready for the weather. Bring a water bottle and your phone. You can plug it in to play your music over our speakers.
Q - ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW?
A - Yes! We love you for booking with us, and we will do our best to show you a good time. Our drivers are super chill and know a lot about a lot of things.
We love the Whiteaker neighborhood! Its colorful and eccentric style makes it unique, and we are dedicated to celebrating, supporting and strengthening our relationships with the community. Please be respectful, kind and embrace diversity at all times.
The Pacific Pub Cycle is a hate free zone. We will never discriminate against you and we expect you to never discriminate against others. Simple as that. We reserve the right to end a tour if the behavior of an individual(s) are unsafe.
