Pedal Pub Accident: Video of riders pushing stalled vehicle uphill

We found out this afternoon that Pedal Pubs don't handle hills well.

In particular, if you are careening down a steep hill at a high rate of speed, and try to take a tight corner, the Pedal Pub has a tendency to tip over like an SUV.

But as the video below shows, Pedal Pubs can also be stymied by steep inclines.

This footage was taken on 5th Street outside the City Pages offices several months ago because it was too ridiculous not to film.

The riders were not able to power the pub up the steep incline with their puny, beer-addled legs, so they had to get off and push.

Just another sign that these rolling menaces are not fit for our fine roadways.

Everyone I've watched riding the Peddle Pub looks bored! They are probably happy to have posted their fb picture of proof and are now hoping it will be done soon so they can pee and relax in a regular bar!

I have never seen someone on a Pedal Pub and thought, "Now there's someone I'd like to meet!"

I am pretty sure these are the same people who complain about bikes being allowed in traffic. Nice work by the broadcasters who were able to keep a straight face while reporting that "alcohol was not a factor".

All the more reason for them to go away.

Sounds like pedal pubs aren't safe enough to be street legal.
