Seeing the world by bike beats seeing the world by bus, as bus tours are often ruined by engine exhaust, construction detours, and guides who deliver facts by honking them in Morse code. Enjoy the calm of an engine-less trek with this Groupon.

City Cycle Tours
LED lights glimmer in the dark, illuminating St. Petersburg's scenic streets. As the lights loom closer, they reveal a steel behemoth whose deck is serving as a stage for neon-clad '80s pop stars cycling in tandem and one lone acrobat steadying himself for a mid-motion keg stand. Though this doesn't happen every night, Rhett Reynolds and Daniel O'Brien have hosted several strange occurrences ever since they moved their pedal-bus pub crawls from the Twin Cities to sunnier climes. City Cycle Tours' four-wheeled, pedal-powered bus was designed and contracted by an independent engineering company and transports 14 passengers past the city's scenic sights and to an array of drinking establishments.
The blue-and-silver craft coasts along with minimal passenger effort at no more than 6 miles per hour as participants sit beneath a pounding six-speaker sound system and wide canopy, safe from the eyes of bird paparazzi. Dual 66-liter coolers carry riders' nonalcoholic libations, but the craft also boasts enough room to accommodate a half keg. Groups roll along guided by LED blinkers and headlights, kept buoyant with full suspension. The company's designated drivers hold taxi licenses and reflect a cabbie's knowledge of road etiquette and avoiding jousting matches as they ferry their charges through city parks and along piers.
