Route Selection Information:

In a 2-hour tour, a group of 16 can get to 2 bars for approximately 30 minutes per stop. If you want to visit more than 2 stops, we recommend booking the GL Pub Cruiser for a 2.5 or 3-hour ride.  Please note: All riders must be 18 or older and have a valid ID to present upon check in. Upon arrival, you must fill out a digital waiver in our app, GRPubs, available in the App Store or Google Play.

Review the tour routes below and click here to make your reservation! Mr. and Mrs. Pub are waiting for you! The two bikes are exactly the same but run on different schedules, so make sure to review both to find the best time for your group.

The stops are Cottage Bar, Rockwell and the Grand Woods Lounge. At each of these 3 stops, when the tour arrives, the tour receives 3 pre-ordered appetizers compliments of the Great Lakes Pub Cruiser.

Difficulty: Medium, only slightly difficult on the gradual uphill pedal up Monroe Center…once you leave Rockwell, it’s all downhill and a complete blast!

Tour Length: 2.2 miles

Time: 2 or 2.5 hour tours

Downtown Market

This is a great tour for all, but especially great for a corporate outing or a group that wants something different than just a Pub Crawl. This tour will only make two stops; one can be a food or libation stop along the Ionia Corridor of restaurants and then on to the Downtown Market. Highlights of the market include the homemade ice cream shop, the bake shop, and the cheese, wine and beer establishment – where you can actually drink/sample what you may want to buy at their shop. Additionally, there are a few restaurants that offer lunch-type selections. The market stop would be 50 minutes, and the first stop would be 25 minutes.

Difficulty: Easy/medium, mostly flat terrain

Tour length: 2.8 miles

Time: 2, 2.5, or 3 hour tours
