We do this every year for my boyfriend's birthday. This year we planned an elaborate drinking game to go with it, like "Drink when you get stuck at a light..." It was so fun. DO THE HANDLE BAR! DO IT!

Had a blast with family on the Handlebar. I didn't have to peddle - I got to bartend in the middle! We had great music and danced and laughed. It was a great time!

I have done this twice with co-workers. Bring an interesting mix of people, and you will learn alot. Everybody has to peddle.....no motor and no slackers allowed. However, the bike is large enough that you can rotate and take breaks. The drivers are always fun,...More

I remember a bench at the back of the beer bike that would be perfect, but honestly that might have been on the pickled peddler. I can't remember which one had the bench.
