Can’t decide if you want to spend your weekend sitting outside drinking beer or going on a bicycle ride through the city? Well, with the Mainz Beer Bike you can do both!
Anytime you see Beer Bikes in big cities they are always the main attraction on the street! Everyone waving and honking their horns in celebration. Most likely also wishing they were on the beer bike! Luckily we can have this biking and beer drinking experience right here in Mainz with the company BierBike Mainz.
How it works:
The beer bike sits up to 16 people plus one provided driver on the bike. 10 people pedal the bike, 5 people can sit on the bench and one person is doing the important job of serving the beer in the middle. You don’t have to worry about being a good bike rider because the trained driver will do all of the steering and choose the safe routes for the beer bike’s 2 hour journey.
The bike comes with a tap for beer, lights for night time rides and a stereo for your favorite tunes! If that isn’t a recipe for a good time all over town, I don’t know what is! Just bring Bon Jovi’s ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ and press repeat.
Even though it is a beer bike, the company wants to stress that drinking isn’t the main attraction. The real fun comes from the togetherness with your group and having a great time riding on the bike through beautiful Mainz. Not only are you having a blast with your friends while drinking great German beer, they have guided tours that take you passed all of the gorgeous landmarks and sites in Mainz. For example, you will pass the Dom, the Old Market Place and the Rhine River waterfront.
Winter time on the Beer Bike:
BierBike Mainz has a great offer in the winter time where you drink German hot mulled wine (gluhwein) and eat holiday gingerbread cookies (lebkuchen). This would be so fun to do with friends while singing carols then getting dropped off at the Mainz Christmas Market!
Beer Bike Prices: Sunday to Thursday: 200 euro and Friday to Saturday: 270 euro. Beer must be ordered for the tour at 4,50 euro per liter and you also have a choice of other drinks like wine at their station.
