The HandleBar is Toledo’s first 16-person pedal powered pub on wheels, offering two hour bicycle bar tours of Downtown and Uptown Toledo. Each of the company’s 4 bicycle bars can accommodate up to 16 guests. Tours are provided in two categories: Private Group Tours (where the entire bike is reserved for a fixed price and the customer brings between 6 and 16 guests) and Public Individual Tours (where single seats are sold and you’re matched with other fun riders). The HandleBar Toledo requires that tours be booked in advance online and operates from 10:30am to 10:30pm 7 days a week from St. Patrick’s Day until Thanksgiving. Tours feature a company designated driver (called the Bar Handler) who drives the bicycle bar and leads the tour, and each tour usually makes about 3 stops along the way at great local bars that feature exclusive HandleBar discounts. Customers may bring their own beverages (beer/wine ok!) onto the bike and can expect to get some great group photographs with the help of their Bar Handler along the tour. An on-board stereo capable of connecting to the customer’s iPhone / iPod / Android blasts great tunes throughout the ride, creating a truly unique and customizable experience for each group tour.
The HandleBar Toledo is excited to play a small part in the resurgence of downtown Toledo, and to be involved in the continued development of our community. Since its opening, The HandleBar Toledo has contributed to more than 50 local charities benefitting both downtown and the Toledo Region as a whole, with in kind donations totaling over $10,000. The HandleBar Toledo believes that a rising tide lifts all ships, and that the tide is certainly rising in the Toledo Region.
