The crazy-looking contraption looks like hard work and lots of fun, all at the same time. The "Pedal-Hopper" was founded in Denver by Luke Stone and some partners. They have six "bar-cycles" in Denver, and they operate in Salt Lake City and Kansas City as well.
"It started off with a bet between two Dutch guys," as Stone tells the story. The result: "a 10-16 person party bike that's propelled by its riders." The "pilot" is responsible for steering and braking. Pedalers (and free-loading passengers) are responsible to not be public intoxicated. No drinking is allowed on the vehicle. Other than that, a good time will surely be had by all!
