Pedalers on Sacramento’s beer bikes received the final nod from the City Council on Tuesday to begin drinking while riding.
Passengers will have to bring their own restricted amounts of beer or wine to tide them over between stops. Two companies operate the four-wheeled pedicabs in the city.
Effective July 1, passengers are allowed 36 ounces of beer or 18 ounces of wine each and must stay out of the public right of way when disembarking with open containers. Each bike with imbibing riders is required to have a driver and a safety monitor and cannot carry more than 15 passengers.
The ordinance also restricts where the bikes can travel during commuting hours. The council passed the ordinance unanimously as part of the consent calendar.
