Pub and Pedal

One of the most fun times I've had doing things for this blog was when we did the 87th Street Bar and Bike. Wes Port and I weren't really great bikers so we mostly focused on the bar aspect of the bar and bike. I think we went to 10 bars and rode about 3 or 4 miles. It feels a lot better getting some exercise in while you're getting your drink on.

With that in mind, the Pub and Pedal for Earth Day may just be a great time. The Pub and Pedal will start out at the Liberty Memorial, ride to Czar Bar, then to Tower Tavern, then The Foundry and Riot Room and then to a bonfire at some dude's house. It doesn't sound like that strenuous of a ride so I think nearly anyone with a bike could do it. The trick is to try. If you only make it to 1 or 2 bars, that's better than 0 bars.

The ride takes place on Saturday, April 23rd with the meetup at Liberty Memorial at noon. A donation of $20 benefiting BikeWalkKC is appreciated, but not mandatory. The first 75 people participants will receive an "eco-friendly" t-shirt (nudity is much more eco-friendly). So if your idea of a good time is drinking good beer near bikes with people with biker shorts on, this is the ideal event for you.


  1. Sound like an awesome time! BUT, if you had a party bike ( you could mix biking and drinking LEGALLY at the same time.

  2. Thanks for the tip Patti - these bikes would really do the job! And the nice thing is, you get some exercise in the process. Can't do that at any ordinary bar!!
