Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE LEAST AMOUNT OF PEOPLE NEEDED TO OPERATE THIS THING?
The Slow Ride needs a minimum of six people to go out on a tour. If fewer than six people are signed up, we will call you to reschedule or unfortunately cancel.
ARE DRINKS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF THE TOUR?
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
Unless weather is severe (thunder and lightning), WE WILL RIDE. This is very important, nobody will melt. We cannot tell the future, so if it is raining that morning and the ride is at 5pm, resist the urge to call and ask what happens if it rains. We will tell you to wait until it is closer to the ride and we will make a call. It’s actually really fun when it rains, groups have a blast. Plus there is a roof so you will stay pretty dry. Remember, some people Ride in the rain, and some people just get wet.
DO I HAVE TO BE 21 YEARS OLD TO RIDE?
Pub Crawls are always 21+ Our other guided tours — History and Boos Cruise — are 21+ on Fridays and Saturdays, and 12 years and older Sunday through Thursday.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN FIT ON THE SLOW RIDE?
It can hold up to 15 riders, there are 10 seats with pedals, 2 seats above the back wheels without pedals, and a bench seat on the back that holds 3.
WHAT IF MY GUEST LIST IS LARGER THAN 15?
Have no fear, we have 8 Slow Ride crawlers in our fleet and have a blast with larger groups. Give us a call and we can put something together and play follow the leader through the city.
DO YOU DO PRIVATE PARTIES?
Of course! If you would like to rent the Slow Ride for a private event just let us know and the whole shebang is yours for $375.00 (plus taxes) Sunday through Wednesday, and $410.00 (plus taxes) on Thursday through Saturday.
WHO DRIVES THIS THING?
We provide your driver who controls the vehicle and the route. All the passengers do is pedal which powers the “contraption.” Please be aware that if anyone gets too crazy (that is up to our trusted driver), they will be asked to leave the ride and find their own way home.
WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
There is lots of street parking, but it costs $2.00 per hour, Monday through Saturday from 8am until 8pm. There is a parking lot at the end of the block that costs $10 per every 5 hours. The closest parking garage is Whitaker Street.
CAN WE BRING FOOD ON BOARD?
Sure you can, we have lots of storage space on the Savannah Slow Ride.
CAN WE DRINK WHILE ONBOARD?
As long as we are operating within Savannah’s open container laws. What does that mean you may ask? There is no alcohol allowed in coolers. However as long as your libation is in a plastic cup, matching cup or thermos and was purchased from a pub, that is a go.
WHAT’S THE MUSIC SITUATION?
We have speakers so music will be provided. We welcome your playlists – just no offensive lyrics.

YOU MUST BE THIS TALL TO RIDE
All heights are welcome, but if you are under 5’0, you might be stretching to reach the pedals. If you are shorter, not a big deal, take the bench seat. Weight limits do apply, please call for details.
DO I NEED TO BE AN ATHLETE TO RIDE?
No, but you may break a sweat! Please keep certain physical limitations under consideration.
WHO WEARS THE PANTS ON THIS SLOW RIDE?
The driver. Please be considerate of your surroundings and our drivers will remind you kindly if things get hairy.
WHAT IF THE GROUP GETS NAUGHTY AND IS ASKED TO SCRAM?

CAN WE MAKE OUR OWN ROUTE?
