    Drinking and Driving okay because of Designated Driver

    Man, these pics are sweet! My friends who used to live in Germany were telling me about this thing and I needed to see pictures. I guess a table runs down the middle so you are sitting across from eachother while cycling which pushes the bike. They were drinking but the person in the actual driver seat was "sober".

    She said it was a pretty slow ride but cool as hell....

    I have a couple of ideas where they were headed but I had a friend of mine telling me about the same thing. Apparently they just kind of cruise around and enjoy themselves and their beer. I have a trip planned to Amsterdam in the near distant future and will check it out and if I remember anything I will tell you when i get back

    The point, I think, is to ride around and drink. Not to actually go anywhere. Don't be silly! Looks fun though...Maybe a little weird to be pedalling sideways but maybe for all the folks that spend time riding in one of those trainers it wouldn't be that odd.

    Except maybe a drinking establishment or several.
