Pedal Pubbin' through Savannah

Laurel, the bachelorette from this past weekend in Savannah, has been trying to convince me for a couple of years now that I needed to rent a pedal pub for my birthday. She hasn't been successful because the idea of pedaling around from one bar to the next in Charlotte on {more than likely} hot, humid night in July just does not sound appealing to me. At all.

Enter Bachelorette Weekend... where what the bachelorette wants, the bachelorette gets :)

We rented out a pedal pub for two hours Saturday evening through the company Savannah Slow Rides for a private tour from 6 until 8. Once we were loaded up & pedaling away, I completely understood why Laurel likes pedal pubs so much. Holy cow. It was awesome.

If you've never heard of a pedal pub, here's the skinny: it's a mobile pub with bike seats/pedals for each person participating. You have to pedal to power the pub from one bar to the next. Once you get to the bar, you have about 10-15 minutes to either get a drink, buy a shot, whatever, and then get back to the pedal pub to go to the next bar. Repeat that about 5 times.

It was so much fun.

The weather could not have been more perfect for this activity, either. It was in the 70s with a little bit of a wind... gorgeous weather for pedaling & drinking.

I had every intention of taking a picture of each bar that we went to, but like the rest of the weekend, pictures are a little hard to come by when you're on a mission to drink {and we were definitely on that mission!} When we got to each bar, we hurried inside, made a decision about what type of drink to order, and by the time you had your drink it was time to head back to the pedal pub. I don't know how all pedal pub companies are, but ours had great guides and a fun Bachelorette scavenger hunt to complete during the tour. At the end of the night, Laurel had crossed everything off the list... including starting a flash mob on the sidewalk for bonus points. And by "flash mob", I mean we got random strangers to do the cupid shuffle with us.

If you're going down to Savannah for a girls' weekend, I would highly suggest looking into renting a pedal pub for a couple of hours. We had such a good experience and I'm trying to find a way to do this again in Savannah!


  1. That sounds like so much fun! There are places in Portland that you can do the same thing and it is definitely on my list of to do's for this summer!

  2. I love the Savannah Slow Ride! I was in Savannah last year for a Bachelorette weekend and we did the very same thing. Looks like y'all had a blast!

  3. This looks like so much fun!! But I'm with you, I prob wouldn't want to do this in the hot, humid summer weather!!

  4. This is awesome! I've done it in Charlotte too. Equally as fun!
