What happens if it rains or is cold?
The party (safely) continues! We roll in just about any temperature and simply ask parties to dress accordingly for anticipated temps the day of their ride. As for weather, each BarCycle has a roof and will be stocked with ponchos to help keep passengers dry if starts raining during a party. Note, if there is lightning, heavy rain/hail, tornado alerts in the area, or poor road conditions we will reschedule.
Where do we start and end with BarCycle?
We typically pick-up and drop-off at McGurk’s Irish Pub located at 12th and Russell. However, if you have a preference for another location within Soulard, please let us know at least two days in advance of your party date and we will do our best to accommodate.
How fast will we go?
They cruise at a cool 3-5 mph on flat land…we are not in any hurry!
Where did this thing come from?
The idea came from Europe, they are very popular in Amsterdam and Germany. They are now in many U.S. cities.
Does BarCycle run during Mardi Gras?
No. Due to numerous street closures and heavy foot-traffic the various events draw, we do not operate during any Mardi Gras events. This includes 12th Night, Taste of Soulard, Pet Parade, and Grand Parade day.
