Capital City BrewCycle was founded by three entrepreneurs hailing from Upstate New York who shared a vision of importing an adult party bike concept to the area as a unique way to combine fun with fitness. A “pub crawl” or predetermined biking circuit of pub and restaurant stops on a specially designed 16-person party bike offers riders an exhilarating and entertaining alternative to an ordinary nightlife jaunt in select Upstate New York cities. It will launch June 20, 2014 in The Empire State’s Capital District cities of Troy and Schenectady with Saratoga Springs to eventually follow. However, it doesn’t stop there, Capital City BrewCycle has plans to expand it’s tours nationwide to accommodate cities with likewise demographics.
Additionally, Capital City BrewCycle is an interactive, philanthropic community
partner that organizes and supports charities and non-profit initiatives such as
Tour De Cure, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Walk to Defeat ALS and
Race for the Cure, to name a few.
A pedal party on wheels, this green machine is fueled entirely by its riders (excluding three passengers who are seated in the rear) and commandeered by a designated Capital City BrewCycle driver who refrains from consuming alcohol while on the job. The BrewCycle adds a new dimension to a bicycle workout. Take in the nightlife scenery while socializing and pedaling to your favorite tunes, courtesy of sophisticated onboard sound and lighting systems.
