A Ride on the Sprock 'n' Roll Party Bike

The Flyer editorial team was invited to check out the Sprock n’ Roll party bike's Midtown tour on Tuesday afternoon.

The 16-person bike is 100 percent pedal-powered. State law prohibits alcohol sales on the bike, so guests are encouraged to bring their own booze. After we put this week's paper to bed, the staff showed up at Affordable Vans on Madison, where the bike was waiting in the parking lot. We had six-packs in hand and were ready to ride. No glass is allowed on the bike, so we stocked up on colorful cans of IPA, pale ale, and even some hard cherry cola (that was yours truly, no shame). Flyer ad sales executive Chip Googe even brought along a box of wine. Classy.

Sprock 'n' Roll books Midtown and downtown tours for groups with a minimum of eight people. They have two bikes, so they can accommodate up to 32 people.

Here's a slideshow of our journey.
