Michigan Pedaler riders can cycle through the city on a pedaling pub bringing their own beer and wine on board for a two-hour ride through the City of Detroit.

The Michigan Pedaler is another example of the resurgence seen in downtown Detroit.

The Michigan Pedaler is the popular thing-to-do for friends and family in the City of Detroit.

People have fallen in love with the entire experience of gathering with family or friends and pedaling through Detroit on The Michigan Pedaler.

DETROIT – The Michigan Pedaler announced that it will begin allowing guests to bring their own beer, wine and spirits on board its popular party bike.

The Michigan Pedaler is a 15-passenger party bike that people rent for two-hour segments for tours through Downtown Detroit as well as the Midtown and Corktown neighborhoods. It debuted in March of this year and has proven to be immensely popular, selling out many of its dates since its debut.

In addition to pedaling through town, guests often turn their rides into pub crawls stopping at popular Detroit pubs, bars and restaurants as well as shopping stops or for pictures at city landmarks. Now, while pedaling through town, passengers will be permitted to bring their own spirits in addition to any non-alcoholic drinks or snacks that have always been permitted.

The change in policy comes after the City of Detroit’s City Council passed legislation allowing for the consumption of alcohol on The Michigan Pedaler.

Mike Gill, owner of The Michigan Pedaler and its Chief Fun Officer (CFO) said: “People have fallen in love with the entire experience of gathering with family or friends and pedaling through Detroit on The Michigan Pedaler and being part of the vibe in the city. To now be able to offer the opportunity for people to legally consume alcoholic beverages while on board provides an additional enhancement to the experience for those who choose to do so.”

In conjunction with the passage of the new ordinance, The Michigan Pedaler announced it would “Party like it is 1933” – a reference to the date Prohibition ended 83 years ago in the United States by offering a code discounting rides by $83.

The Michigan Pedaler will not offer alcohol for sale. Guests may bring their own alcoholic beverages on board for their ride. Many nickname these cycle pubs “the beer bike” as it offers a cooler for guests to use to BYOB turning the bike into a pedaling pub. Guests may also bring their own cooler on board.

The Michigan Pedaler is open year-round for groups to rent. The cost is $300 Sunday – Thursday or $350 Friday and Saturdays. Tours can be booked online at Known as the "Cadillac of Party Bikes," The Michigan Pedaler offers electric assist to help riders if they get tired or no longer wish to pedal. In July, it spent two days filming with the cast of the new Comedy Central series The Detroiters, which will debut early next year on the cable channel.
