Take a ride on our Solar-Powered Pedal Bus throughout downtown Halifax to visit some of Nova Scotia's finest restaurants, pubs, distilleries, and historic venues!
The FIRST pedal bus tour in Atlantic Canada (along with Charlottetown, PEI), Ride Solar's unique tour offers up to 18 passengers an opportunity to pedal your way to various pubs, restaurants, and unique sight-seeing/historic locations in the birthplace of Canada.
This four wheeled "bike" is powered by up to 12 people pedaling (minimum of 8 required to move the bike) with additional seating for a total of 18 passengers and has an electric assist motor to help us zip along VERY EASILY.
We can even accommodate one wheelchair!
The power to the electric assist motor, all instrumentation, lights & sound system are powered by 1.2kW of solar panels on the roof.
Our pedal bus is SAFE. It is CE approved, legal to be driven on the roads, moves at slow speeds, has a grab bar to hold, and even has seat belts for added safety. Passengers may be required to wear helmets supplied by Ride Solar at no extra cost.
Green, clean, fun, & safe - just like Nova Scotia!

4) Next we will glide downhill to the Halifax Distilling Company (across the street from The Stubborn Goat) where we will cap off our adventure with a delicious rum flight & rum cake along with an overview of distilling and the history of rum-making (& rum running!) in Halifax.
