What You'll Get
Humans united can accomplish amazing feats, such as discovering fire, putting a man on the moon, and building a full-scale model of Nebraska in the Arctic Circle. Band together for a common cause with today’s Groupon for a two-hour pub crawl from Pedal Hopper in Lawrence. Choose between two options:
- For $12, you get an individual two-hour ride pass (a $25 value).
- For $149, you get a group two-hour ride pass for up to 16 people (up to a $350 value).
Pedal Hopper sends pub-crawling tipplers on a self-sustained journey around town on a covered, pedal-powered mobile bar. Exercise limbs as you travel to fermentation destinations at an average of 8 mph, with a sober, tour-provided driver navigating the vehicle through roving herds of feral clydesdales. Riders meet in the South Park area and travel to their choice of pubs throughout downtown, including The Bottleneck, Jazzhaus, and Dempsey’s Burger Pub. Tours generally proceed along three routes depending on the group's choice of destinations. Pedal Hopper suggests groups of at least 7 riders and can seat up to 16, so abduct three five-member basketball teams and get to pedaling.
Riders must be 21 or older to participate.
- Lawrence is now one of only two cities in the country to operate pedal-powered rides like this. – Theresa Freed, Lawrence Journal-World
- The new Pedal Hopper seats 16 people. Ten of those people have to pedal, but all of them can experience the newest local transportation for bar crawls, tailgating, or even just a ride through Lawrence’s historical hot spots. – Alison Cumbow, the University Daily Kansan

About Pedal Hopper
As a fun, environmentally friendly alternative to a party bus, Pedal Hopper totes tipplers from pub-to-pub aboard a bike powered by the pedaling legs of its riders. A designated tour guide takes care of steering and braking as you and your friends cruise to choice watering holes at 5–8 miles-per-hour—a speed scientifically proven to be perfect for enjoying good times or air-drying KISS tattoos you won't remember getting. Pedal Hopper routes are generally designed to avoid steep avenues, allowing riders to propel forward at a casual pace without the fear of losing control. Taking its cue from the original bar cycles that have been wheeling carousers around Europe for more than 15 years, the bike boasts a stereo, a disco ball, and LED lights that allow for night riding.
