I was itching to get on a bike. Being an avid cyclist and touring countries that promote cycling so heavily, I was surprised that I hadn't convinced my traveling partner to take a bike tour earlier. Mike's Bike Tour was a great idea!
The tour is very slow-paced, which is nice, and you get a single-speed cruiser--an upright-sitting bike that anyone can ride. When we first met our tour guide, he was cheeky and fun, and he stayed that way through the whole trip.
My only word of warning: the tour guides make a plea for tips at the end of the trip. Our guide was well worth it, though!

We ended up seeing everyone from the bike tour at the Hofbrauhaus that night. Apparently, all backpackers in Munich stick to the same gigs. Nevertheless, I'd really recommend Mike's. I've heard the one in Barcelona is really fun too.

90% of the tour is on bike paths - there are just a couple sections where you have to ride in the street but it wasn't too busy and we all survived. The tour is about 4 miles long and takes 4 hours. Jason stopped alot to let us soak up the sites (except as I said at the nudist meadow) and to explain what we were seeing (he had prepared us before hand for the nudist meadow.) We also had a long break in a beer garden in the English Gardens so we could refresh ourselves. (In German that means "drink beer" - although they have other beverages for those who don't like the brew.)
This tour would be ideal at the beginning of one's stay in Munich because the folks at Mike's give great advice on what to see and not see. We didn't get to it until our last day but it was still great - became the grand finale for our visit.
