Bike Tours

Discover Wilmington’s hidden gems. Explore quiet corners of the city. Learn from our guest ride leaders as they share their expertise in art, history, and more! There’s no better way to get to know a place than by bike. Bike tours are free, but we kindly request that you pre-register. Registration is capped at 20 on a first-come, first-served basis. Follow the links in the tour descriptions to register. Due to insurance requirements, all riders must wear a helmet, no exceptions (you can purchase one from us for as little as $5!) Families are encouraged to participate so long as children are capable of completing the advertised distance.

Schedule of Bike Tours:

June 4 – Pedals, Pewees, and Peregrines
5:30pm start time; 5.5 miles
Start/End: Urban Bike Project (1500 N. Walnut Street)
Birds fly, feed, and raise young alongside humans in the city, and this ride will discover what’s living along the Brandywine and in downtown Wilmington.  Delaware Ornithological Society is teaming up with UBP to help riders find some of the birds living close to us – from the ducks in the Brandywine to the small birds singing from the tree tops to the raptors that nest in Downtown Wilmington. Binoculars will be provided, but supplies are limited so please bring your own if you have them. This ride will focus on using your eyes and ears as you ride, rather than speed, and is a family-friendly program.
