LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --It's a bar, it's a car, wait... it's a bike? How about this, it's a booze cruise unlike any you've ever seen before called the "Thirsty Pedaler."
"We've just had a ball," rider, Jenny Meibers said.
Partiers from across Kentuckiana get a group together, reserve the "Pedaler," then get moving for a mobile bar crawl.
"You get to drive around the city a little bit, and you get a little work out on your way," rider Aimee Patenaude explained.
The "Pedaler" seats up to 15, has several bar tours, and passes pretty much all of the downtown landmarks. If you're like one of the party animals who usually ride it, you might be expecting to drink on board, but that's not the way it works. Even though there's a tap, no alcohol can be served on the bike.
"It would be nice, but you can't do that in Kentucky, so we need to change the laws here," Meibers said.
The law certainly doesn't stop riders from having a good time. As you might expect, as the tour moves along, it gets more and more entertaining.
"Everybody gets a smile out of it, and that's what I like about it the most," owner, Scott Benningfield said.
