    Thought this was a great idea, maybe it already is in use in other parts of the country, but I've never seen it.

    Holds up to 16 people and everyone must petal. They are still working with the city to get a liquor license and once they do it will be BYOB. Perfect for pub crawls! One of the pixs on their website shows people drinking bottles in brown paper bags. We don't need no stinking license!

    This seems like one of those ideas that would be very location specific. Who's going to want to pedal around on this thing on the Strip? Who's going to want to pedal it from the Strip to an off-Strip casino? You could use it Downtown, but why bother. By the time you get the thing organized and moving you could have walked to the other place.

    The logistics of having what is essentially a giant, slow pedicab seem kind of difficult.

    I didn't mean a great idea for Vegas, that's why it is posted in non-vegas. But for a pub crawl or a several mile route sightseeing, I think it would be fun.

    I've seen those in a few cities. But right now I can't remember where. Some in the US and maybe Amsterdam?

    We have PedalPubs here in the twin cities. They are a ton of fun.

    Looks to me like the pedal power is redistributed as they are pedaling toward the driver (steering wheel) and not in the direction of the vehicle...so yeah, you are sitting doing a gym task while getting a bit of a lift......interesting.....
