Weekly Photo Challenge – Community

I live in what just might be the microbrewery capital of the world, Fort Collins, Colorado. And on "Microbrewery Row" also known as Lincoln Road on the north side of town, one frequently sees this odd vehicle cruising down the road. A sort of strange four-wheeled, human-powered cycle, The Handle Bar offers microbrews to patrons who can imbibe while pedaling like mad. We were on our way to Fort Collins Brewery for a pint and a wonderful dinner when we spotted it! As my interpretation of Community, it represents our city that joyfully supports the Microbrewery community and the group of people that have to cooperate as a community to keep the HandleBar going!

  1. This is quite possibly the best vehicle I have ever seen in my lifetime.

      It is definitely an outstanding vehicle, Jen! The next time I see it, I need to take a video! It reminds me of a bunch ducks paddling madly while everything is calm on the bar side!

    Oh, how my husband would love that. I’d probably never get him off. Not that he’s a lush or anything, but he does enjoy a good beer. (Who doesn’t? :) )

  8. Is it a taxi? The guy without pedals buys beers for the pedallers?

  9. That looks like fun, Cathy, but I doubt I could get Milton to ride it with me. Last night, after quaffing a few pints, he complained about having to climb up three steps to exit the pub.

    The solution to drinking and driving. It must be a hoot to ride and drink on. Seat belts anyone? ;)
