DSCF1179 A closer look at the drive mechanism (a real differential in the back! From an Opel, I'm told)
DSCF1180 Looking up the driveline from the rear
DSCF1181 5 pedal positions on a side, with a non-pedaling stool over the rear wheels
DSCF1186 An automobile brake reservoir means that while it doesn't GO quickly, it can be stopped efficiently
DSCF1188 Brake Pedal
DSCF1192 We fill out the liability waivers (you have to either wear a helmet, or sign a document stating that you didn't want one)
DSCF1194 Sven looks on cheerfully
DSCF1198 The PedalPub in action! (Movie)
DSCF1202 Easy to have a conversation while pedaling, but notice how people all grab onto the end of the bar for stability purposes?
DSCF1203 Looking across the bar at my co-riders
DSCF1204 Melissa is amused...
DSCF1208 There are holes in the bar top that would just fit a narrow pilsner glass - not a proper British Pint, though. Looking straight down through the hole....
DSCF1215 When we hit a slight incline, it helped to hunker down a bit to get more pressure on the pedals
DSCF1218 Photo op!
DSCF1222 Our first beer stop. "Jimmy's". It was full of people who had obviously already been there awhile.
If you look closely at the far wall you can see a promotion for the upcoming "HamORama" event!
DSCF1230 We met this former biker who loved to tell us about the aggression he USED to get out of his system by biking. Oh boy.
DSCF1235 I jump out at a stoplight for a quick shot of MOST of the riders
DSCF1241 After we finished our route, we had attracted the attention of a neighbor who works for the Greater Minneapolis Convention and Visitors Association, so we gave him a test drive to see how fun it was.
DSCF1246 Jana caught up to us for a picture...
DSCF1248 ..but never quite managed to grab onto the back!
