If you’re out in the Short North or Arena District areas this weekend, there’s a good chance you might spot a new type of vehicle on the street: the 16-passenger bar-bike. Dayna and Dusty Wymer, owners of Cycle Tavern of Columbus, are launching their new bar-hopping tour business this weekend, and will definitely be turning some heads with their unique mode of transportation.
“We rode the Pedal Pub bicycle in Minneapolis while visiting family this spring,” said Dayna. “After our first few pedals, we knew this was just what Columbus needed to add excitement to its downtown social scene.”
This unique vehicle is powered by pedals located at the feet of each of the ten barstools located down the left and right sides. There are additional non-pedaling seats in the rear of the vehicle, while a Cycle Tavern employed-driver steers and brakes from the middle, traveling between five to eight miles per hour.
Cycle Tavern is available for rent for parties, corporate events, birthdays, tailgates and other special occasions from March through October.
