The My City Bike App allows users to see Macon's historical sites from their bike.
You don't have to leave Central Georgia this summer to see new sights.
You can go on history and music tours in Macon behind the handle bars of your bicycle.
It's easy, with a free app called My City Bikes.
13WMAZ reporter Nicole Butler teaches you how to use the new app that offers several self-guided tours.
Step 1: You're going to want to download the My City Bike Macon App.
Step 2: Once you do that, the app will give you three different options. You're going to want to click the green one labeled local biking.
Step 3: From there you get another three options: off road, on road or in this case, bike paths.
Step 4: From there the app suggests you take one of three tours: Ghost of Macon, Music Registry or Best of Macon.
Step 5: Once you click on your tour, you're going to touch for the interactive tour map.
Step 6: From there a map will pop up. You're going to click on one of the points, then click the GO button. Make sure the bike man is selected and click start when you're ready to roll.
There's a little something for everyone from historical sites like the Hay House to musical landmarks like the Macon Auditorium. There are even iconic architecture, haunted halls and beautiful parks.
Vice President of Visit Macon, Valerie Bradley said no matter if you are 5 years old or 85, this is great for the whole family.
"There are approximately about 10 stops per route, so it really is at the pace of the rider and how far and how long they want to go," Bradley said. "If it is something they want to tackle over a period of time, maybe do half one day half another or do the whole route, it really is self-paced, self-guided. So it's really up to the individual riders to determine their own pace."
Bradley said not only do you get to enjoy the summer weather, but you get to see Macon in a much more up close and personal way than just zooming by in a car.
The app is free and is iPhone and Android friendly.
If you don't have a bike, you can still be a part of the fun. Bradley said they have bikes for rent at each of their Zagster bike rental locations. There's one located downtown in front of the Tubman Museum.
