Putting a twist on touring the area, a new company celebrated coming to the Lansing-area, Friday.

JoyRide Pedal Tours, is the first company to come to the area offering pedal bike tours in Lansing, East Lansing and Williamston. The two-hour long excursions allow people to see the area in a different light.

“JoyRide has been so well received in the area that we’re thrilled to celebrate our initial launch success with our partners,” founder Molly Chan said. “Business thus far has been a great JOY and we look forward to growing within the region.” 

The tours will focus on art, beer, food, destinations, exercise and more. Customers can also personalize their 2-hour tour. JoyRide will also host monthly events, where people can book solo seats for specialized tours like 'Spin" dating, shopping excursions, pay-it-forward jaunts and fitness classes. 

“We are thrilled to welcome JoyRide into the region,” Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero said. “By partnering with other business locally, they are not only helping to encourage local business patronage, but also to greater solidify the Lansing area as a complete entertainment destination.” 

On Friday, JoyRide held a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Lansing Brewing Company. They will also hold grand openings on Tuesday, June 21 at Old Nation Brewing Company and Thursday, June 23 at Harrison Roadhouse Both will be held from 4-6 p.m. These are also the locations of their main hubs where tours will start and stop.
