Sometimes you have to pedal for your pint

It’s just a matter of time until a local entrepreneur launches a pedal-powered bar in Richmond. After all, BizSense wrote about two new bike-related business this month: a bike rickshaw company and popsicle startup.

BizSense spotted the pedal-powered pubs in Denver and Nashville. In both locations, the companies that operate the mobile bar provide a driver, and the patrons pedal from pub to pub with music blasting.

The model pictured above costs $40,000 to purchase.

They have one in Charlotte, too.

While I think this is an awesome idea, would Richmond have to change its law regarding taking drinks outside? Or does the vehicle provide the shelter needed?


I have no doubt that someone from the City (ABC, Licensing, etc) would find a way to screw it up. “No fire escape.”


“No fire escape”. LOL good one. Too bad you are probably correct.
