Since cheetah-shoes don't yet exist, and a tree stump with a saddle on it is hopelessly immobile, bicycles remain the best way to tour a city. See and sample some of the area's finest spirits in spirited three-wheeled fashion with today's deal: for $20, you get a 90-minute pedicab distillery tour (a $40 value) from Pdx Pedicab. Tours take place on Saturdays between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Each Groupon covers one person's sights and sips.
Riding comfortably in one of Pdx’s three-wheeled carriages during the Distillery Row Tour, spirit enthusiasts are drawn to three of Portland’s finest distilleries, spending 20–30 minutes at each location and sampling its alcoholic wares. At New Deal Distillery, vodka connoisseurs can taste selections from an elegantly soused lineup of artisan vodkas such as the 88-proof Portland 88 or the hot-pepper-infused Hot Monkey. Hopping off at House Spirits, passengers imbibe available samples of various Limited Release Line spirits, and at Integrity Spirits, inhibitions are modified by potent offerings such as hazelnut-flavored Lovejoy vodka and Trillium Absinthe Supérieure.
Pdx Pedicab is one of Portland’s premiere pedicab companies, providing cab, tour, and special-event services in the downtown and Pearl District corridors. Each bright orange, pedal-powered rickshaw is operated by a friendly pedicabbie who can transport two to three humans or 17 clowns at a time. Each pedicab is equipped with a collapsible canopy that protects riders from sun, rain, and malicious flying-squirrel attacks.
Online reservations required. Passengers must be 21+.
Stalwart cyclists pedal through Portland's historic streets, towing colorful chariots with up to three passengers seated snugly on their padded benches. Pdx Pedicab's drivers take participants on guided experiences of local breweries, such as Bridgeport, Tugboat, and Rogue, during jaunts through Distillery Row, the East Side, and the Pearl District. They also venture out to wine cellars during voyages throughout the southeast part of the city. They make stops at each selected establishment, where passengers sip samples and purchase additional drinks to recover from joining obligatory fire-breathing competitions. Drivers also conduct cycle-powered experiences starting from the west bank of the Willamette River to explore the city's eclectic culture and some of its stranger landmarks. Each eco-friendly, emissions-free pedicab is open-air, allowing riders to feel summer or autumnal winds in their hair during excursions.
