What is The Cowtown Cycle Party?
The Cowtown Cycle Party is Fort Worth, Texas’s famous 16-person pedal-powered BYOB party on wheels. We have been in operation since 2012, and love what we do! All our parties are 2-hour Private Parties, with many customizations available. We’re not just a pub crawl! We can visit local murals, scenic spots, historic landmarks, coffee shops, restauarants, and more. Non-drinking tours are available and we make them FUN!
We are perfect for birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, team building events, brewery and distillery tours, sightseeing, girls’ night out – the possibilities are endless! A minimum of 6 pedaling people is recommended to power The Cowtown Cycle Party. We have 10 seats with working pedals in total, and room for 6 non-pedaling guests to enjoy the ride.
We currently have 3 Cowtown Cycle Party Bikes! You can book multiple Party Bikes and bring even more guests. With all 3 Cowtown Cycle Party Bikes, we can hold 48 guests max. Stay tuned, we will be increasing our fleet soon!
Where Do We Start and End? Is there Parking?
The Cowtown Cycle Party begins and ends every party at our World Headquarters: 809 Galveston Avenue in the Near Southside of Fort Worth, TX. We are one block west of South Main Street.
Free street parking is available. Parking can be limited, so car pooling or ridesharing is recommended. Stay alive– NEVER drink and drive!
Where Can We Go?
We can visit fun spots in the South Main district, The Near Southside, and Downtown/Sundance Square areas. Click here for a list of some of our current favorite places to go during your Cowtown Cycle Party!
Y’all not from ’round here? That’s ok! Feel free to email us at email@example.com, and we will be happy to help create the perfect party route for you. You can also ask your Captain to take you to their personal favorite places!
Do You Provide a Captain?
Yes, we do! Our insurance provider requires it. Our experienced Captains, AKA “Beerless Leaders”, are trained Party Bike operators and THE BEST Party Hosts in the industry! If you have a great time with your Captain, tipping is always appreciated. You can also request your favorite Captain for your next Cowtown Cycle Party!
Do You Sell or Provide Drinks?
No, we don’t sell or provide any drinks or ice. We do allow you to BYOB! (Bring Your Own Beverages!) You are allowed to bring canned alcoholic beverages if ALL riders are 21 or older. No hard liquor or glass containers are allowed.
Is There an Age Requirement?
All riders must be 18 or older.
If you choose to bring canned alcoholic beverages, all riders must be 21 or older, and must provide valid identification upon arrival. If there are any underage riders, no alcohol can be consumed on board.
What Should We Wear? What Should We Bring?
Dress according to the weather. Wear comfortable athletic clothes, and shoes that will securely stay on your feet. Leave your high heels and flip flops at home! Small purses/bags and light jackets and be stored in our overhead storage area.
Bring your favorite BYOBs on ice in a lightweight cooler. We don’t provide drinks or ice. Drink responsibly and remember to also bring enough water for everyone.
Cooler restrictions: You are allowed to bring (2) coolers max per Cowtown Cycle Party Bike. Each cooler must be 15″ x 25″ x 15″ or smaller, and weigh 50 lbs. or less when fully loaded with your ice and BYOBs. If you bring too many coolers, or if your cooler is too big, your Captain will ask you to switch your contents to our loaner cooler.
Please leave valuable jewelry and electronics at home. We are not responsible for any lost or damaged personal items.
Do We Really Have to Pedal?
Yes, the Cowtown Cycle Party is pedal-powered and pedaling is required on certain seats! As long as everyone listens to the instructions of the Captain, and tries their best, we will have a fun experience. We can also take breaks along the way and switch seats, so everyone can take turns pedaling and taking breaks.
TIP: Big, heavy coolers make pedaling more difficult! We do not recommend bringing heavy, hard-sided YETIs or other large fishing/hunting style coolers. Your cooler should be 50 lbs. max when fully loaded with ice and your BYOBs.
