Buffalo Pedal Tours was started in September of 2014 by Ken Szal, former NYS social worker and entrepreneur .
He is a huge Buffalo backer who has lived here most of his life. There is a renaissance going on in Buffalo and he wanted to add to it. He felt that those pedal trolley things may be a way to attract people downtown. So he took the money out of his retirement fund and bought one, even before the city ok’d it. As everyone knows it was hit and soon expanded to Rochester and Syracuse
Ken then saw the pedal boat business needed a better boat so be built a custom pedal powered boat. He is only the second person in the world to have created a boat like this that was certified by the United Stated Coast Guard. He is currently working on custom made bikes and two new coast guard approved commercial boats!
Ken cares about Buffalo and has ensures his company gives back to the community. Buffalo Pedal Tours has donated thousands to local charities since 2010. Groups that have received donations from us include the Buffalo Zoo, Children’s Hospital, Buffalo Hearing and Speech, Sheas’ Buffalo Theater, Make a Wish, Kevin Guest House, Evergreen Health Services, Buffalo Police Athletic League and the Friends of Night People.
Our pedal powered trolleys take groups of 15 (or up to 86 with all 6 bikes) out and around our city. Yes they are pedal powered. It is perfect for all types of occasions from the obvious bar tours and bachelor/bachelorette parties to birthdays, corporate outings and team building, all types of wild themes (take a look at the gallery or our Facebook page) that bring groups together. The way the seats are placed stimulate conversation, since you are next to or facing everyone. It is also nice that we have seats for non-rider seats on the back bench. Not only is our bike environmentally friendly but it travels at the perfect speed to take in everything you are passing and is a great photo opportunity.
We offer multiple bikes that can fit varying amounts of people for all different types of tours ranging from our city’s great architectural gems, picturesque historical rides, a tour of the greatest pubs, or customized tour.
