$160 for Pub-Crawl Ride for 8–16 ($320 Value)

Riders combine their strength to pedal a Dutch-crafted bike that holds as many as 15 seated passengers and one additional person standing inside the bar. A designated pilot leads the way and stays with the bike as passengers stop off at their choice of three bars along a two-hour ride that winds through Whiskey Row and the Museum District.

The Thirsty Pedaler

Built in Amsterdam, The Thirsty Pedaler’s 16-passenger bicycle moseys around the city during two-hour historical tours and pub crawls. For the Main/Market tour, riders choose up to three bars—some of which include drink and appetizer specials—to stop at during a ride through Whiskey Row and the Museum District, as well as the scenic Kennedy bridge and the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. The Old Louisville tour focuses on sightseeing, as pedalers power past the University of Louisville, St. James Court, Central Park, and Victorian homes inhabited by creepy 1960s television families.

Each tour includes a pilot, who mans the bike as passengers run in to watering holes or hop off their seats to snap photos of landmarks. Twelve bicycle seats line the sides of the vehicle (10 of which actually pedal), and a bench across the back seats three additional riders. One final person can stand in the middle, dishing out nonalcoholic drinks and BYOB snacks that groups can tote in small coolers. Though the top speed is only about 7 miles per hour, riders should still anticipate the possibility of minor injuries such as falling and scraping knees or bruising their egos when smug turtles overtake them in the passing lane.
