    How many pints should you drink and still ride home?

    Obviously I have had a few, but I shall still ride home what is your personal limit? Mine is prob related as to how well I can walk. I can still run up stairs so I am ok.

    An awful lot? Seriously, I'm more stable on a bike than my own feet. My friends regularly witness this and are still scratching their heads trying to figure it out.

    reminds me of a funny story... A friend of mine was riding home from a party and a needed to empty all the beer out of her stomach, so she puked into a bush. A bike cop who saw here riding before she stopped rode up and said she was drunk and was giving to get a ticket for riding intoxicanted... He asked why she would ride so drunk? she replied "cus here not supposed to DRIVE when your WASTED!"

    I died laughing when I heard that story, but keep in mind in a lot of place you can get a DUI on a bike, not to mention Public Intoxicantion tickets.

    Come to think of it, I remember waking up in my bed with my cycling shoes on, and my bike half laying across the bed. Weird, but its a lot better than waking up next to the girl you thought was hot 8 beers into the evening I suppose.

    I lost count last night. I do know that I ride about 30% faster while under the influence.

    you got drunk, welded your seat post into the middle of the top tube, put your cranks kangaroo style, took off the chainring and the chain, turned the saddle backwards, and jumped off your bike with a bottle of wine in your hand while three lines chased you and your bike ran into a soccer goal and exploded?

    damn, that must have been a good night.

    You forgot the part where I filled the front (rear?) tire with gasoline.

    This was a friend's artistic interpretation of my blasting through a chain-link fence at a high rate of speed on Nebraska Ave (ever watch cops? You've seen Nebraska Ave) in Tampa. Broke a clavicle and bled from my head a LOT.

    to the point of not walking too well, then no more than three more pints...if you exceed this rule it proves to be a very long and tedious, if not impossible, task of actually mounting your steed.

    oh yeah...if you're seeing doubel then your pretty screwed...i haven't any actual experience riding in that condition (well, my brother tells me otherwise but i don't remember or know what he's talking about) so i couldn't tell you if this is very possible...last bar ride we went one though, one girl was riding like she was seeing double, she fell once, he friends lughed very hard at her, she got back up and kept on going (these are roller derby girls) and she bounced off a telephone pole once (kinda bumped it with her side) then veered off the curb and the whole time her bars were in constant overcorrection of steering but she never fell down again...wtf...then she got off the bike and talked fine and walked perfectly straight...i was told she doesn't ride bikes often, i guess some people are just backwards, i ride better than i walk when liquored up.

    mounting the steed is the hardest part. after that it's smooth sailing.

    wait a minute, are we talking about real 20oz pints or the silly american 16oz pints?

    drunk is actually my favorite way to ride. at least once every other week i go get on the bike late at night to go ride around the block for a bit before heading to bed, and it turns into a 20+ mile ride bombing the streets of manhattan. few things more peaceful than doing 25 mph thru the financial district at 5am. i find the drunker you are, the less you feel the burn, and the faster you ride. i now advocate drunk exercise to all my friends. ironically, the only time i've ever been hurt on the bike while drunk was when i was walking it. my friends made me promise not to ride because i was too drunk...i showed them!
