11/22/13 – West Palm Beach Offers a New Way to Stroll Downtown

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (November 22, 2013) — Downtown West Palm Beach will officially welcome Cycle Party, a new way to experience the streets of Downtown. The “bier bike,” as it’s referred to in Europe, fits 15 riders and a driver positioned around a bar-like table. Ten of the 15 riders have to pedal to keep the party moving, while five can sit back and enjoy the view. Each Cycle Party tour is scheduled for two hours and allows riders the opportunity to plan out their journey and route. Whether they prefer to stop at various restaurants and pubs, or take the scenic route to maximize time on the bike, each Cycle Party is customized.


“It’s a unique, fun way for people to experience Downtown West Palm Beach,” said Chris Haerting, owner, and often operator of the Cycle Party. “It’s 100 percent green. There’s no gasoline involved; it’s only pedaling and a little bit of sweat. Our most popular tours are scheduled for pub crawls where riders pedal from bar to bar. It shows that you can go bar-hopping, be healthy and green all at the same time.”


In addition, Cycle Party has partnered with Downtown businesses to provide their customers with VIP access during the ride, including no cover charges, no lines and exclusive drink specials.


To welcome Cycle Party to the Clematis District, a ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at The Wine Dive, 319 N. Clematis St. on Nov. 26 at 5:30 p.m. Guests can enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres and refreshments along with the opportunity take the first ride around town.
