E-Bike tour a hidden gem in St. Andrews

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) — John McCollough moved to Panama City at the end of 2018. He was ready to lead a normal retired life in a place he fell in love with. McCollough has many hobbies, including paddleboarding, motorbikes and, of course, riding around town on e-bikes. One afternoon while walking around town in 2020, he met a founder of YourBikerGang.

YourBikerGang is an Austin, TX based company. The founders built the company around their love for e-bikes. It has since spread to other cities. YourBikerGang is looking for areas that are scenic, rich in history, and suitable for e-bikes. That’s why they chose to move to Panama City, and now McCollough is the face of that operation.

“I really love it. I love the community. I love the people here. It was awesome,” McCollough said.

The company and McCollough go well together. Anyone who takes a ride with him will be the first to tell you, he is as friendly and welcoming as can be.

“I’ve never met someone like John before. He’s very funny and he’s very knowledgeable and you just let him entertain you and show you around, and it’s so much fun,” said Panama City resident Melissa Bowman.

Tours are fun for the whole family.

According to McCollough, “Anyone can do it, that’s what I want them to know. From thirteen to eighty-three, we’ve had them all. And so, a great experience for everyone.

Whether you’re from halfway around the world or across the road, you’ll likely learn something from him, too.

“I saw things that I had never seen before, like, there are these beautiful places that I had never been to before,” Bowman said.

Thanks to McCollough’s kindness, humor and personality, this is one of the highest rated tours of the area on TripAdvisor.
