You may have seen it in on your travels around Europe where it has been enormously popular, but now it’s Belfast’s turn to enjoy this very fun activity.
We were invited along to the media launch last week for a quick cycle round the City Hall.
It’s hard to describe it but when you see the photo of it you’ll understand what I mean. This 15 passenger bike has a dedicated driver who has control of the steering and breaks, and a barman. 6 people sit down each side with 3 along the back. Only 5 on each side actually cycle as they face each other whilst having the option to enjoy a wee toast while they do it. That’ll explain the barman then!
Yes you can bring your own drink if you want to raise your glass a few times and have a wee toast en route.
It’s a bit of a hike up on to the high seats but once you’re there, you’ll set off on either a one or two hour tour of the city. At £10 per person per hour, you’ll have the best craic as the party music plays from the speakers and pedestrians watch, wave, and join in the fun from the footpaths…and they probably want to join in and get on board.
Wee Toast Tours is the best fun on a bike in the City Centre and one we would definitely recommend as a fun tour! It’s perfect for a Xmas night out, or a hen or stag party, or a ‘just because’ fun experience!

Belfast Times top tip: Sit on the two rear cycle seats, those at the front do more of the work!
