16 Person Bar & Bicycle

I guess it was a long winter in Minnesota this year, because a couple of guys invented a 16 person bicycle and pub.

The pedal pub

Move over, party bus. Here comes the party bike.

The PedalPub, a bicycle bar built for 16, makes its North American debut today in Minneapolis. The contraption is available for parties, special events and even weddings.

How it works: Patrons push pedals under their seats, while a professional driver steers. The PedalPub's speed: 5 mph.

Is it legal? Maybe. St. Paul and many other cities don't allow drinking on public streets, but partners Al Boyce and Eric Olson hope to be allowed to let customers imbibe as they would on party buses or limos. PedalPub does not provide or sell alcohol.

Who invented this thing? Dutch brothers Zwier and Henk Van Laar.

See for yourself: Noon to 3 p.m., Father Hennepin Bluff Park, Sixth Avenue Southeast and Main Street, Minneapolis.

Mmmm, I wonder how hard this thing is to peddle. I have heard that those bike for four people are hard to peddle. At least you could work off the beer while drinking it!

They don't sell or provide booze.... I'm confused...

Four seat bikes are difficult to peddle mostly due to balance, so I don't think this would be a problem.

The booze is something that you provide yourself.
