    Due to circumstances beyond our control we will no longer be operating The Sunrise Pedal Trolley in Frankenmuth. This was a very difficult decision that had to be made and was beyond our control. We were welcomed with open arms into the community and were thankful for our time there. We have refunded or will be refunding all tours. We also extend an offer for everyone who has already booked a tour in Frankenmuth to come and experience the Sunrise Pedal Trolley in Bay City FREE OF CHARGE. Thank You for your support and Pedal On!! The fun just doubled in Bay City as bike number 2 will soon be available to book here in Bay City!!!! LETS PARTY!!!

    That was so much fun in Frankenmuth. Thank you Kirsten for an enjoyable afternoon. You were the best tour guide ever! The powers that be in that little village need to get their noses out of the clouds and accept a little bit of variety besides festivals every other weekend.
    6 days ago Sunrise Pedal Trolley 6
    Let me clarify "The powers that be" are not the reason we left. The entire city staff were more than welcoming and accepting.
    6 days ago Sheri Stacy Beaudin 5
    Sunrise Pedal Trolley that's good to know. It just sounded that maybe the city officials had some sort of issue with the service when you posted that you were taking the high road. So it led some to believe that it was city gov't maybe. Seemed like the demand was there and people seemed to like seeing us on it when we had our ride. Whatever the case, we'll see you in Bay City and wish you nothing but success. It's a great business you have!! We were very happy customers and can't wait to do it again!! Much success!

    Yes, Kirsten was a fantastic tour guide and so were Elizabeth Laux and Abbey. What a loss to the community and definitely a loss for the pedal trolley.
    6 days ago Sheri Stacy Beaudin 1
    Yes they do and realize how many people stopped and watched us on the trolley, took pictures, videos etc. Some even asked us how they could do it. They loved it! They're missing the boat...or the pedal trolley so to speak. I had a feeling when we had our time on it that it wouldn't last in Frankenmuth. Not because the visitors there wouldn't want it, but because the "powers that be" wouldn't. We'll take advantage of your service in Bay City!!! Kristen was wonderful and we had an amazing time!
