A bicycle built to party

This seems the best way to get around and have an evening out

is it a bicycle if it's got four wheels?

I'd think that's more of a pedal cart.

I'd guess you could call it a "quadcycle"??

OK, Sorry

I apologies for the misleading title of my original post, it of course isn't a bicycle but all the same I thought it interesting.

Honestly I thought it was pretty cool. I think my original response was while I was still mending from my run in with the ground, caused by an automobile.

Four wheels is probably a good precaution, considering...

Put in some low gears and off-road tires then make it float and it's ready for kinetic sculpture races.
