Bike party service Groovin’ Gears taking off in Scott’s Addition

NBC12 profiles the small business that hosts bike parties around town.

From NBC12:

A start-up business is Richmond is putting a new spin on riding a bike. We told you a party bike was coming. Now it’s here, taking pedalers on pub crawls. It’s a party on wheels, powered by people. Groovin’ Gears is up and running, right through the streets of downtown Richmond.

“It’s a party on a bike,” said rider Melissa Oefelein.

Layne Summerfield, one of the business owners, said “We really saw the demand for a pub crawl business in Richmond.”

Groups and individuals book tours on the 14-person bike, which start in Scott’s Addition and head to craft breweries, bars and restaurants.

I recently took a ride on Groovin’ Gears’ party bike for a friend’s birthday and can attest to just how much fun it is. Worth checking out.
