As I was walking back down, I saw this touring Party Bike in the half a block north of Beale Street. I had seen similar contraptions in other cities, where people pedalled and sipped beer at the same time, so I went over to investigate.

According to Wikipedia, these party bikes are also called fietscafé, bierfiets, pedal crawler, pedal pub, traveling tap, beer bike or bierbike. They were invented in 1997 by Het Fietscafe BV from the Netherlands. These vehicles are often designed to look like early 20th century trolley cars and have side seating for the pedallers, a bench seat in the rear, rack-and-pinion steering, and a canopy top. A few manufacturers offer an electric assist motor to aid the riders on hilly terrain.

Apparently, River City Pedalers’ tours are BYOB: Beer, liquor and wine are allowed as long as it is brought in cans or plastic. Box wine is also allowed.

Irmak Şehri Pedalcıları

Geriye doğru yürürken, Beale Sokağı’nın yarım blok küzeyinde bu gezi partisi bisikletini gördüm. İnsanların aynı anda bira içtiği ve pedalladığı benzer aletleri diğer şehirlerde de görmüştüm, bu yüzden araştırmaya gittim.

Vikipedi'ye göre, bu parti bisikletlerine fietscafé, bierfiet, pedallı sümüklüböcek, pedallı bar, gezici musluk, bira bisikleti veya bierbike da denir. 1997 yılında Hollanda'dan Het Fietscafe BV tarafından icat edildi. Bu araçlar genellikle 20. yüzyılın başlarında yapılmış tramvay arabalarına benzeyecek şekilde tasarlanmıştır ve pedallı koltuklar için yan oturma düzenine sahiptir, arkada bir koltuk takımı, kremayer ve pinyonlu direksiyon ve bir tentesi vardır. Birkaç üretici, binicilere eğilimli arazide yardımcı olması için elektrikli bir yardımcı motor sunmaktadır.

Görünüşe göre, River City Pedalers (Irmak Şehri Pedalcıları) turları KGKİdir: Bira, likör ve şaraba, teneke kutu veya plastik getirildiği sürece izin verilir. Kutu şaraba da izin verilir.

Hi Murat,
A nice idea for an open bar with street view.
Light cond. were not best favorable, but managed fairly well the situation.

Bonjour, cher Murat,
Voilà une composition avec un sujet original et bien présenté.
Boire tout en pédalant, car il doit falloir pédaler sérieusement pour faire mouvoir un tel engin (une assistance électrique doit être prévue) !
Très bonne note.

Hello Murat,
nice the view of the Party Bike that i saw for the first time.i don't know if it is a good idea to drink your beer while pedalled especially on hilly terrain.
In a flat surface i think that is a wonderful to see someone the landmarks of a town drinking his beer.


Lep pogled i trenutak, interesantan i dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak. Interesantno vozilo na pedale, putujuci pab.
Dobar tekst o koriscenoj tehnici i elementima snimka.
Sve najbolje.

Ciao Murat, lovely composition with original trasportation system, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Murat,
So this Dutch invention has already reached Memphis as well. I wonder if the local people are very happy with them, they have already been banned from the city centre in Amsterdam. Good capture from a good angle. The bright green stands out nicely from the background.

Hello Murat,
One imagines that after a few drinks the desire to pedal gradually fades away ;-) Fine capture of this interesting contraption, which is a new one on me.

Hi Murat,

You probably already know that part of the Babylon Walls from Iraq are in the Istanbul Archaeology Museum. I would not be surprised if it had been 'donated' to Turkey as a sort of payment for all the German Archaeologists in the numerous sites in Turkey. Such as Hattusa. Turkey put its foot down and demanded and got the return of the city gate statue. The pedal powered portable bar here is unusual. Good sharpness and what do they call an 'esky' in the US? In New Zealand its a 'chilly bin'. Tfs!

Hi, Mesut.
An interesting photo, that discovers me, this contraption that I did not know, is a way to compensate the calories you ingest with the drink.
All the best and have a good day.

Hello Murat,

Also the same "Party Bike" see we in Ghent, sometimes with students.
I've already seen accidents, maybe to much drunk, the tram was in the way!
Nice daily life picture.
You create depth and perspective too.
Sharpness and clarity are real amazing.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hello Murat,

good image of this interesting vehicle, I guess you must have fun while travel using it, well seen,

Best regards,
