Red Pedal Tours in Philadelphia is now offering a brand-new tour for foodies. We profiled Red Pedal Tours in our Spring 2014 issue when they had just hit the streets with their bright red pedicycle, and we are thrilled they are growing in popularity. The pedicycle is powered by you—there are 12 seats lining two sides of the cycle, with a bench in the back for three non-cyclers to enjoy the ride. Their history tours are a fun and active way to experience the city’s history in a new way. Pub crawls are intended for those who want to check out the city’s bars, while foodies will rejoice in their latest addition to their lineup—food tours. Work up an appetite pedaling around the city with stops at Reading Terminal Market, Barra Rossa and Destination Dogs. Tours are two hours and begin at Silence Dogood Tavern in Old City.
Marilyn Sukonick-Zeff’s story starts in a Barnes & Noble. On a whim, many moons ago—as she says—she took her two children for story hour at the national bookstore and noticed there would be a tarot card reader coming in to promote selling the cards. The experience intrigued her so much she asked for a private reading with the woman on a different date.
