There are lots of ways to experience the beauty of Jim Thorpe and the Lehigh Gorge- hiking, biking, by foot, by car, by train, even by horse and buggy.

For motorcycle enthusiasts and folks just out for an adventure, a ride in a vintage BMW sidecar is the perfect way to take in the sights.

According to the Jim Thorpe Sidecar Tourz website, you can choose from a one-hour to four-hour excursion taking in the incredible sights and sounds of each season’s unique beauty. Cool off with a thrilling country ride along amazing local waterfalls deep in the mountain laurel; or visit a local winery for a tasting!

The vintage BMW sidecar rigs can accommodate two riders on the bike in addition to your guide. Jim Thorpe Sidecar Tourz now offers three sidecar rigs that can accommodate up to six riders in addition to the tour guides. Experienced antique motorcycle enthusiasts Barb Timberz and Ed Fink will pick you up at your location. $75 per hour, per bike. Goggles and helmets are provided. 570-249-1570.
