About Buffalo Bike Tours
Hello, TRAVELERS FAR AND WIDE!
I’m Marc, and I’m founder of Buffalo Bike Tours. As a Buffalo Native who recently returned, I was blown away by how much the city has changed and all there is to see and do. Buffalo is home to a resurgent culture, world-class food, an amazing biking community, and some of the most endearing people anywhere.
While I love being back in my hometown, I noticed that most local tour offerings left a lot to be desired. Downtown was full of party bikes, double decker buses, segways, and dry architectural tours – but I saw a need to create a tour company that would stand out with true authenticity. I had no money or investors – just passion for two of my favorite things: bikes and Buffalo.
I wrote songs, brought poems to read, shared jokes, and showed people some of my favorite places while breaking down some of Buffalo’s negative perceptions. I connected the city’s past to the place it is today – all the while designing a fun and interactive way to experience the city.
Much to my surprise, it worked! More than 250+ people showed up for our first two months of tours in 2018 and their enthusiasm inspired me to think about how to grow bigger and better in 2019. This year, we’re excited to partner with Hostel Buffalo-Niagara and GObike, all the while maintaining our humble and homespun approach.
So join us for a ride – before it snows!
