Capital City Cycle Tour announces Albany tour
14-person cycle launches new route in Albany’s Warehouse District
Albany, NY – Climb aboard a bicycle built for 14, and explore Albany’s Warehouse District. Capital City Cycle Tour launched a route in downtown Albany last week.
The company, which offers bike rides on a 14-rider “brewcycle,” set off on its maiden voyage Friday, June 1 at 6pm. Anthony Ali, co-owner of Capital City Cycle Tour, established the business in Troy in 2014, with a route that included stops at some of the city’s most popular watering holes. The party bike tour quickly became popular activity for groups and special events. The tour expanded to Schenectady and Hudson in 2015, and the company will now add a route in Albany.
“Capital City Cycle Tours is excited to bring its operation Albany’s Warehouse District. We look forward to collaborating with the great attractions already in the area. Thank Mayor Sheehan, Capitalize Albany Corporation, and Discover Albany for helping us to get rolling,” says Greg Teresi, Co-Owner Capital City Cycle Tours.
Teresi and Ali say the cycle is a unique way to see the city and visit local businesses. The Albany bike route will start at Lost & Found on Broadway, and work its way North, to visit an array of local craft beverage producers, and give customers a taste of just what’s brewing in Albany.
“The Capital City Cycle Tour is creating a new and desirable experience for visitors. The tours will give visitors, conference attendees, and residents a new way to experience Albany, and connect local businesses in Albany’s emerging Warehouse District,” says Jill Delaney, President and CEO of Discover Albany.
The cycle can be booked for special events, tours, and groups. Each trip will include stops at craft beverage producers and bars in the warehouse district. Many will offer drink specials to cycle guests.
The tour will tap into Lost & Found, Druthers Brewing Company, Nine Pin, Vintage, and Stout. Several of the businesses are clustered together, so guests can choose which businesses they visit.
