Tips For A Winter Party Bike Pub Crawl

The sleigh bells are jingling, the menorah is getting lit every night (no, not that kind of lit), the days are getting shorter as we approach the winter solstice and you are getting anxious anticipating the arrival of family for the holidays. How are you going to cope with the stress that comes with the holidays at the end of the year? Here at Pedal Hopper Denver, we want to remind you that you can book a Denver bike bar pub crawl through some of Denver’s hottest neighborhoods any time of the year. Pedal Hopper Denver’s beer bikes roll rain or shine, wind or snow, whiskey or mulled wine. Even better, during the colder months, we offer steep discounts for our patrons and friends. We know that some of you are worried about the weather, the one thing we can’t predict or control. While temperatures in Denver average a high of 47 degrees Fahrenheit in December, there are certainly some days much colder than that. To alleviate your worries (and prevent additional December stress in your life) we’ve compiled this list of hot tips to stay warm on a Pedal Hopper Denver pub crawl during the winter.

  • Wear Long Underwear

No, your grandpa isn’t writing this blog. Just trust us. All the cool kids are wearing long underwear these days. You can’t see it under your pants and it looks pretty classy under skirts too. Make sure to invest in a quality pair of moisture-wicking thermal underwear, because if you want to stay warm on your Pedal Hopper Denver pub crawl you need to stay dry. Long underwear works as insulation to keep your body heat in and to keep the cold from reaching your skin.

This is the most important way to stay comfortable in Denver and the rest of Colorado during the winter months. Whether you’re skiing, hiking, curling, ice skating, or joining us for a bike bar party aboard a Pedal Hopper; dressing in multiple layers will make it easy to adjust to the ever-changing climate conditions. Our high elevation and proximity to the sun means that direct sunshine can warm you up substantially, so you may need to peel off an outer layer or two. Best of all, Pedal Hopper Denver’s beer bikes have an amazing amount of storage so you won’t have to tie your sweater or jacket around your waist like an ‘80s mom or worry about them falling off the bike.

  • Pack Your Thermos!

There’s nothing better than a piping hot cup of coffee or tea on a chilly day, am I right? You can definitely ask your Pedal Hopper Denver party bike pilot to take you to some establishments that will set you up with a nice hot toddy or Irish coffee, but you might want a warm-up en route to your next stop on the tour. Modern thermoses can keep beverages hot for hours on end. The best part about a thermos? Judgy people can’t see what you’ve got in there, so if you want to bring New England Clam Chowder without strangers casting strange looks your way, you’re in the clear.

  • Invite Enough Friends to Fill the Beer Bike

Pedal Hopper Denver party bikes are the perfect people-powered winter event. Your whole crew has to pedal to get the bike bar moving, and the exercise will help keep you warm if your Denver pub crawl takes place on a colder-than-average day. The bars, breweries and local hangouts Pedal Hopper Denver’s beer bikes frequent will be warmer than the outdoor elements so having a full party bike of pedaling pub crawlers means you’ll get to your destinations as fast as possible. Plus, group hugs are much, much warmer with a bigger group so make sure you get the word out to fill all of the seats on your party bike for your pub crawl through Denver.

The winter months are a perfect time of year to enjoy our discounted Denver party bike pub crawls and with these tips to stay comfortable during your Pedal Hopper ride we know you’ll have the confidence to book a Pedal Hopper Denver bike bar this winter and get your party on.

This secular holiday party has “Christmas” in its name, but it takes place on December 1st and feels far enough away from December 25th to not be too Christmas-y. People take this party really seriously; donning 1940’s and 1950’s era outfits and having a swinging time with killer bands like the Hot Tomatoes and The Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra! Your ticket includes a holiday buffet, but make sure you get on it soon! The 9th Annual White Christmas ball is sure to sell out.

With the right crew, you can turn the amazing Denver Botanic Gardens into a modern nighttime garden party during the Blossoms of Light event. They have space for rent if you want to go the formal route or you can just invite your people to meet up for some holiday fun and light-viewing with the masses. The Denver Botanic Gardens serves warm drinks and dinner items like sandwiches and pizza. The Blossoms of Light is only open from 5 pm – 9 pm, so this is more of a pre-holiday party event, but we know you’ll love it and so will everyone that gets lucky enough to be invited to your holiday party. Get your tickets before it’s too late!

Denver is growing up really fast. Remember when she took her first steps? So cute.  The influx of new people and the energy that has come with them over the past 10 years has led to a boom in Denver’s art culture, music scene, and culinary offerings which have led to an increase in Denver’s tourism.

That’s why we here at Pedal Hopper Denver figured we ought to provide you with a list of the best winter activities in Denver!

You can skate at the Denver Ice Rink at Skyline park with friends, family, and your significant other starting on November 20, 2018, until mid-February, 2019.

One of the Front Range’s hidden gems is Eldora Mountain Resort, located just 55 miles west of Denver, up the canyon from Boulder, CO. Although some skiers and snowboarders find Eldora Mountain Resort to be more beginner and intermediate skill level friendly compared to Summit County Resorts or Eagle County resorts, we’ve never heard anyone complain about the affordable lift ticket prices at Eldora Ski Area, which is less than $100 per day for the 2018-19 season. Eldora Ski Area is one of the best small-town ski areas around Denver and is perfect for beginner or intermediate snow sports enthusiasts which makes it the perfect family ski resort (you also don’t have to slog through the horrid traffic of the I-70 corridor). Eldora Mountain gives you a taste of what Colorado’s incredible resorts have to offer while still being super close to Denver!

Pedal Hopper Denver party bike tours in the winter? It’s not as crazy as you think. Denverites are used to bundling up against the elements in our fair city, and Denver is known for having a 70-degree day even in January or February! Plus, party bikes are human-powered; so while you and your party is getting a workout and enjoying beverages you’ll also be keeping your body temperature where it needs to be in order to remain comfortable even during Denver’s coldest winter days. Additionally, if it’s a particularly cold and blustery winter day in the Mile High City, Pedal Hopper Denver can modify your tour route so there is more time spent indoors enjoying drink discounts provided by our friends in Denver rather than outdoors in the cold. Lastly, beginning in November, we lower the prices of our tours, which makes it the perfect time to get the best deal for you and your party to pub crawl through Denver aboard one of our Pedal Hopper Denver bike bars.
