Denver is now home to a one-of-a-kind sidecar motorcycle tour experience
DENVER, Lucky few have experienced the unique thrill of riding in a motorcycle sidecar—and City on the Side is the first and only fully licensed, insured, and government-accredited sidecar motorcycle tour company in the country, offering a number of exciting sidecar tours within the rugged splendor of Denver and the Rocky Mountains.
Take a ride through history
Ural sidecars began their storied history during World War II when the Russian government appropriated German BMW R71 motorcycle technology in 1939. Soon after, Russia moved their motorcycle sidecar-building facilities from Moscow to a town called Irbit just east of the Ural Mountains. Now known as Urals, these motorcycles with sidecars are still manufactured in Irbit, by hand, to this day.
Experience Colorado like never before
While Colorado’s exquisite beauty can be discovered in many ways, none are as exhilarating and adventurous as those experienced on a classic Russian Ural sidecar motorcycle.

City on the Side’s professional Sidecarists (Chauffeurs) serve as delightful tour operators allowing passengers to discover the culture, history, landscapes, and people of Denver and the Rocky Mountains in a unique, unconventional way.
