The 90-minute electric Trikke tour glides through the heart of the Oakwood Historic District, which was Raleigh’s first true suburb and is today a treasure-trove of restored period homes in a variety of architectural styles. Essential Oakwood is an excellent choice if you’d like to explore Oakwood but in less time than the Historic Oakwood tour. This route does not include Oakwood cemetery. The minimum rider age is 14; the maximum rider weight is 260 pounds. Participants must be in good health and able to steer and use handbrakes like a bicycle's. For safety reasons, pregnant women are not allowed to participate. Equipment orientation and training is included. Closed-toe athletic shoes are required.
