We recently had a staycation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and found ourselves entertaining a large group of friends who have traveled from all over just to come see us. We were excited to the usual with them – eating, drinking, and just being lazy on the beach…but what if we could do more? That’s where CP Tours’ Cycle Party Las Olas came in!
First things first – what is a cycle party?
A cycle party is the best way to mix friends, exercise, and alcohol. Better known as the triple B’s. Bikes, Buddies and Booze! (As quoted from the CP Tours site…we couldn’t have said it better!). Imagine wearing your favorite shorts, casually making your way through one of the most happening neighborhoods…without a thing to worry about. After all, there wasn’t that much to think about. You’re not only outside enjoying fresh air but you’re also exercising! Look at that. Mom would be so proud. Plus, if you’re the organizer in your group, bonus points to you…you might actually be introducing to your friends the most fun afternoon ever. No wonder you always have the best ideas.
And we can say this because we dared go on the crazy 12-people bikes ourselves last weekend…and loved every single minute of it.
So, where do you actually start?
Right here. This link will take you to the Fort Lauderdale Cycle Party page, where you get to choose from seven different tours.
We only tried the Pub Craw Tour (for now!) and we each got three drink tickets. It’s up to you if you want to use them all on the first stop or save them for later, but trust us, you will get thirsty very quickly and even more towards the end, especially towards the summer months. You’ll also receive a souvenir cup and a low-res photo package.

Our best tips for your next Cycle Party
- Great for friend groups. This totally beats a standard night bar hopping. For once, you’re going places and, yes, you’re exercising. Plus, it gives everyone a thing or two to talk and write home about. When was the last time you rode a 12-people bike? The thing looks ridiculous and that’s secretly when our love affair and curiosity for CP Tours began.
- It will get hot. We’re in South Florida. Let’s not forget that. Summer or winter, the chances are that you will be sweating it up after the first twenty minutes. Our advice? Don’t pick the hottest time of the day. Bring plenty of water, SPF and wear appropriate clothing.
- DJ it. Plan ahead and bring a music playlist ready on your phone. It not only makes it seem like a true workout (and hence, something you can feel good for the rest of the day, or, what the heck… the whole week!), but it also amps the fun.
Don’t miss out on the other locations!
