Picture this: Pedaling for my pint

posted at 10:33 am on September 2, 2013 by

In St. Paul, we don’t go for pub crawls.  We go for pub pedaling:

pedal-pub

I haven’t worked so hard for a beer since …. well, I don’t think I ever worked this hard for a beer. Or two. With a cup of red wine, too.  We pedaled around downtown St. Paul for two hours yesterday and had a great time.   Other cities have this or something like it, and if you get a chance, you should definitely give it a try.  Be sure to invite five or six athletes to join you, though, and try to choose the most level route you can find.

No law against drinking and pedaling? 🙂

Too much work. If I want to get some exercise while drinking beer, I’ll go bowling.

Asheville, NC has had one of these for a while (which started this summer).

It’s got to be fun, but there are also a lot of hills downtown.

Saw one of these in Prague last week. Seemed like a lot of work, even for the very, very awesome Czech beer. I’ll be going to Oktoberfest in Munich in a few weeks, and maybe there will be one there, too.

So much drinking to do….

I’ve seen one of these in a few places at festivals and fairs. I pedaled on one in Key West on New Years Eve, many years ago. Fortunately we had some big guys peddling so it was easy and a fun night out.

Do they give it to you in a sippy cup, Ed?

ted c on September 2, 2013 at 12:45 PM

they’ve got something similar to that at St Simons Island, GA called a “surrey”. Seats 4 though and no beer…… *bummer*…. hard to pedal because the gear is awful low, it’s like pedaling a paddleboat–lotsa work but no speed.

That is what the barrel at the front of the beer mobile is for.

simkeith on September 2, 2013 at 1:11 PM

Looks like fun.

Many years ago, my brother, my cousins, and I rented a “family bike” and tried to ride it down a hill. Predictably, we lost control and crashed into a lamppost, but miraculously, no one was hurt and the bike also sustained no damage.

Recycling.

Beer with a head foot. Who woulda thunk!

Shy Guy on September 2, 2013 at 1:58 PM

Saw one of these on the streets near PNC Park in Pittsburgh. I bet the company had to figure out a route that went mostly downhill, since there’s little in the way of level streets in and around the downtown. Heh …

Open container in a moving vehicle… photographic evidence… wow you’re in boatloads of trubble, Ed 😉

I really wanted to try that until they tipped one over in Minneapolis.

Think I’ll do my drinking the old fashioned way.

AScott on September 2, 2013 at 5:36 PM

Can’t imagine how that’s legal. If it is, it shouldn’t be. Keep your drunk butt on the sidewalk.

Ronnie on September 2, 2013 at 6:01 PM

Have always wanted to try this in MPLS! There is a beer tender that keeps charge of the crew I hear… and it looks like a great time. Burnin’ calories and drinkin’ what more could one want?

BigGator5 on September 3, 2013 at 8:23 AM

For the life of me, I can’t imagine how they make a dime with those things.

SteveThomas on September 3, 2013 at 8:25 AM

The operator has to stay sober, correct? I had a friend who got a DUI on his bike once. He was pretty blotto.
