  • Wheel Fun Rentals - Minneapolis
    In 1987, Brian McInerny was careening around Italy in a four-wheel, multipassenger Surrey cycle. An avid cyclist, he fell in love with this quirky contraption that he'd never seen in the United States and he immediately sought out the manufacturer and purchased a crate of them. Wheel Fun Rentals traces its origin to this very moment, as Brian changed his surrey-distribution company into a rental and tour company that spans the nation. In spite of a general suspicion of unicycles and their ulterior motives, the company's corporate philosophy espouses "Supporting active healthy lifestyles for our customers and maintaining a healthy environment for all." Wheel Fun's fleet of rentals now includes bicycles, multipassenger Surreys, scooters, surfboards, and paddle-based watercraft. They also promote green communities by offering free rentals to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

  • PedalPub Twin Cities
    Famous for being the pioneers of wind power, the Dutch have recently harnessed another untapped energy reserve: the power of 8?16 people on a pub crawl. Now, thanks to PedalPub Twin Cities, human pistons can pedal giant Dutch-made bikes with a robust barrel at the helm?think a petite school bus made of wood. With eight to 16 passengers pumping, the mobile party can travel up to five miles per hour. A pilot is always on hand to control the sound system and steer the bike along pub crawl routes such as Eat Street, NordEast, or St. Paul's Randolph Avenue. Other tours trade drinks for scenery. Food and drinks stow safely in roof racks, and there's even room for an 8-gallon keg.

  • Amsterdam Pedals
    Corralling groups for a night on the town can be difficult, as partygoers must wait for everyone to finish their drinks and grab their stuff before moving on. The team at Amsterdam Pedals helps smooth out such roadblocks with their 16-person pedal bar?a group bicycle outfitted with comfortable, inward-facing seats, a table, a cooler for BYOB drinks, and a driver to steer the whole rig. The trips cruise around the easy slopes of three signature routes, which can hit a variety of hot spots downtown, pubs and restaurants on 7th Street, or parks, where passengers can uproot and steal valuable trees. Guests can adjust their seats to suit their leg span, accommodating heights of 5 feet and taller, with three bench seats available for shorter clients. Tours can meander about St. Paul until 10 p.m., when the pedal bar must be returned to Amsterdam Bar & Hall.
