My name is Phil & I am the owner of Rochester Pedal Tours. I moved here from Buffalo in July 2015 and have been driving tours ever since. I decided to take a shot and go out on my own because I want to be self made and be my own boss! I started with 1 bike and now I am up to 4! I love to show off Rochester and create a sense of community between my riders and the people we pass on the streets or in cars. Drawing on our experience from driving so many tours we have worked to create the perfect tour… if you do what we tell you to do. That is why we spend so much time writing this website and blogs because they cover every facet of a pedal tour in great detail. Then we also do a pre tour phone call to our groups to find out what routes you want to do and to walk you through every step of your groups trip
Now we have 4 awesome employees. Jesse is my original employee and beloved by all of his riders, he works for the South Wedge Planning Committee during the day and drives at night and on the weekend. Brian is my full time employee he does all of the pre tour phone calls and is an amazing driver. Matt is my newest employee, he is amazing at repairing the bike and from leading the Rochester Bike Kids Slow Rolls he knows how to command a group. Jenna is our newest employee and she is awesome. When any of them drives you know you are in great hands.

Rochester Pedal Tours is a pedal powered trolley that is powered by you! No motor, no assists, just you the riders. The pedaling is nothing extreme, this is not the Tour de France. When you pedal up a hill, you know you are going up a hill, when you go downhill you will love it. There is a difference between pedaling and just moving your legs and when everyone pedals together it is more effortless and faster which makes for an easier group pedal. We accommodate all kinds of groups from people celebrating 21st birthdays to 80th birthdays, groups of middle aged women, multi generational family outings and everything in between. Not only do we appeal to people of all age groups but we have offerings for people of all different interests. Guests bring all of their own food, snacks, appetizers and candy, play their own music, decorate the bike for the occasion (take a look at great examples from prior groups on our Facebook page) and pick the route/type of tour you want to do. If you have any questions please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org We pride ourselves on responding quickly and in detail to any questions.
