Your Daily Game Plan
Get exercise and alcohol with the best pedal powered beer rides in America
One day, a chronic alcoholic was watching a particularly thrilling episode of Voltron. Suddenly, a light bulb went off in his head. What if I attach a lot of bikes together, then combine that monstrosity with a bar thereby creating the ultimate mobile drink platform?
His head exploded with the sheer awesomeness.
Then some other guy invented pedal pubs. Here are some of the best we’ve found in the US!
Get an intense workout and an even bigger buzz riding through the Windy City. The PedalPub in Chicago has three distinct tour routes, with over 33 optional bar destinations in its 4- to 6-mile “Ukrainian/East Loop.”
Sun-Thurs $160/hour, Fri-Sat $190/hour; Pricing options here
Distract your mind from your burning legs with some brain games! Designated drivers for the Denver Patio Ride take pedal pushers through a route of bars with pre-arranged drink specials, quizzing them along the way about Denver, breweries and the Rockies. For diehard baseball fans, a private, two-hour crawl route can end at Coors Field, just in time for a game.
Sun-Thurs full day $160/hour, Fri-Sat $180/hour, Public bike $30/person; Pricing options here
Pull on your cowboy pools and get ready to pedal hard. Explore the newest bars and hottest pubs in the ever-changing Midtown Houston with Pedal Party. An added bonus? You can actually drink onboard these bikes, unlike other states with strict liquor laws.
