Adelaide's First Pedal Powered Mobile Pub
Party with a difference aboard Adelaide's 'The HandleBar', a 16-person pedal powered pub on wheels.

A driver called the "Bar Handler" is provided, who will take care of all the driving and serving while guests provide the pedal power. Tours are two hours long and include 3 to 4 stops at shops, local bars and restaurants for food and more drinks. Hills are avoided to make the tour an easier, fun ride.

Book a two hour tour and make a selection from the HandleBar's beer and wine drinks menu.
For larger groups, two bikes can be booked together and can seat up to 32 people.
What a great experience for bachelor or hens parties, corporate functions and birthday parties to name a few. Cruise around the CBD at 8 to 14km per hour.

All tours will begin and end from 140 Gray Street, Adelaide SA 5000, with each tour allocated parking for up to four cars.
Tours will be around the Adelaide CBD. Have a look at the map below for the tour route.

If you have a particular bar or location you would like to stop at, have a chat to your "Bar Handler" before the tour starts to see if it is possible to vary the route.

To personalise your party tour, you will be able to decorate the HandleBar bike. There is a stereo on board where you can hook up your phone and play your own music or the HandleBar has a radio for music.

You do have to be 18 years or older to ride the bike even if you are not drinking. The maximum capacity per bike is 16 people plus the "Bar Handler" or if both bikes are booked 32 people and a "Bar Handler" per bike.

There are 6 bar stools on each side with 10 pedalling stools. The two seats over the back wheels don't have pedals and there is a bench at the back that will seat three people. So plenty of seats for a rest from pedalling or if you would rather just sit back and relax. The bike is 100% pedal powered, so a minimum of six people is recommended and remember to wear footwear appropriate for pedalling a bike.

The HandleBar will operate even in the rain as the overhead awnings keep everyone fairly dry. Tours can be booked without an order of wine or beer, if you prefer to just pedal around the CBD.

For a gift with a difference you can purchase 'The HandleBar' tour gift vouchers.
