(St Petersburg, FL) –The PedalPub has been operating in St Pete, touring the murals and delivering customers to local watering holes for eight years. Due to the pandemic, “we weren’t sure if we would ever reopen. It’s been tough,” said Eric Olson, PedalPub-St Pete’s owner. “Even though bars and restaurants were already reopening, and maybe with a rather extreme sense of caution, we decided not to reopen until now. People still need to safely get out, get some exercise and fresh air with friends & family. That’s what we’re all about,” he said. Stops will
probably be limited to one or two during the standard two-hour tour and those stops will be at large, usually outdoor venues.
During the hiatus, PedalPub has created two new tours, focused on murals with little to no stops at bars or restaurants. “We thought it would be nice to create tours that would really focus on the murals. There will be a lot more pedaling but some groups may find it worthwhile to stick
together and make more stops to take pictures of, and in front of, our wonderful murals,” he said. The “Mural Alley Tour” will take pedalers east from the starting point near 20th and Central through mural alley between 6th and 7th
The “Alice in Wonderland Tour” will go west, nearly to Punky’s. “These tours are absolutely beautiful. Of course, if renters don’t want to go the distance these tours require, the PedalPub will stop wherever the renter chooses. Pedaling these new tours routes won’t be easy but they’ll be fun.” “We hope people gather friends and family, get outside, and get some exercise with us!”
