The Views & Brews electric bike adventure packs in sweeping Blue Ridge mountain views and 3 brewery tasting stops along a fun but safe course that winds from town to mountain and back again. After launching from the RMA shop at 2pm, you'll pass through neighborhoods and village centers before crossing the river into downtown Roanoke. In addition to tracing the Roanoke River and Mill Mountain greenway trails, you'll move through the central city and even enjoy a spin across the mountain on a fun (but easy!) gravel trail.
The cost of admission includes use of a super-fun e-bike (with a basket on the back!) and helmet (yep, they're required); the service of our guide; and a tasting pour at each of the three brewery stops!
Safety is our top priority, so this activity is designed to include ample instruction as we build your skills on the e-bike. If you are unsure about participation, or feel you may need additional instruction before participating, please just reach out to discuss further.
So long as you're 21 years of age and know how to ride a bike, you're sure to have a blast! This activity is especially fun for date nights; friends visiting from out of town; introduction to electric bike riding; getting to know Roanoke if you're new to the area or are considering relocating; and/or learning the downtown Roanoke brewery scene.

We'll start at our shop, ensuring everyone is familiar and comfortable with our e-bikes before embarking on the Roanoke River Greenway. We recommend dressing in comfortable layers and bringing gloves that you can still operate bike brakes with, we will provide the e-bikes, helmets and hand warmers. Our e-bikes come with baskets for carrying extra layers or items purchased along the tour, so feel free to bundle up without worry!
Our journey begins down the greenway towards south Roanoke and the Crystal Springs neighborhood. Our first stop is Sweet Donkey Coffee, offering signature lattes, coffee, and delightful baked goods. It's the perfect spot to warm up and enjoy a cozy atmosphere.
Nearby, Crystal Springs Grocery Co and Yard Bull Meats provide opportunities to grab tasty treats or holiday gifts.
Next, we'll hop on the Mill Mountain Greenway, heading downtown for a stop at chocolatepaper, a star city favorite for fine chocolate and holiday gifts. A few blocks away lies 16 West Marketplace, a hub with something for everyone: coffee, crafts, food, music, and shopping.
Depending on time and daylight, we'll either make a short ride back to our shop or venture into the Grandin neighborhood on our way back. In Grandin, the Roanoke Co+Op and The Jolly Grape offer more opportunities for holiday shopping or indulging in treats.
The price includes e-bike rental and a guide. Please arrive 15 minutes early, prepared to ride, so we can cover bike instructions and keep the tour on schedule. We aim to return to our shop before nightfall, allowing you to enjoy the full experience.
