Buffalo Pedal Tours is back at RiverWorks

Buffalo Pedal Tours has found a new home at Buffalo RiverWorks. Actually, this is the same place where the company got its original start, when it first launched its cycle-driven tour business. As business grew, other site opportunities arose, all of which helped to get Buffalo Pedal Tours on a steady economic incline upwards.

Now, the “land and lake” pedal company (they added an aquatic pedal boat to the repertoire) is teaming up with dynamic waterfront venue to offer expanded tours and services. It was only a matter of time before this relationship was rekindled. RiverWorks is quickly becoming the “go to” waterfront destination in Buffalo, as it continues to roll out activities ranging from silo climbing to helicopter rides. Buffalo Pedal Tours is considered “the largest pub crawl business in the northeast, with six top machines, including the famous pedal bike on a pontoon boat!”

Seeing that Buffalo Pedal Tours spends most of its time organizing tours on the Buffalo River, it only made sense that owner Ken Szal would opt for a location that would better accommodate the growing pedaling excursion business. Obver the last couple of years, the boats launched from the Outer Harbor. This past summer, the boat tours made their way closer to the Buffalo River by launching from the Erie Basin Marina. Now, the aquatic tours will strategically launch from RiverWorks, which will ensure that guests have the optimal experience (on land and water) in the summer of 2018.

    Buffalo Pedal Tours should find a different home in a different city….

    they are awful, the people who do them are awful bridge and tunnel crowd from the burbs, they do not respect or tip the staff of any place they stop in, they are disruptive to regulator business patrons of any of the business they step foot in , they want service asap with out waiting there appropriate turn…they expect there food in an unreasonable time frame ( due to they only have 20mins at each spot ), and god forbid you are the last stop …… they are blacked out by then puking in your bathrooms and bring in there own cans of sh*t beer….. …. for the love of god we know your on a peddle tour you do not need to ride by and cheer and ring bells…..look at me I am on a peddle tour….. just trash all the way around …cant wait till they lose the insurance and can not operate in the city …thank god business are starting to banned from entry

      I’ve heard your sentiments at a few businesses in Buffalo. I’ve been to other cities that no longer look favorably on the pedal tours, either, for the reasons you mention.

    The bridge and tunnel comments is priceless. I overheard someone in Iowa City saying this as well about outside ring visitors to their urban core.
