I’ve seen a couple businesses on wheels. There is a local guy who rides around with the tools to fix bikes. He helps stranded cyclists who don’t have the tools or know how to do anything but walk their bike the rest of the way home.
And of course there are the party buses where some person, who likely doesn’t get paid enough, drives a bunch of drunk, loud partiers around the city, letting them stop off at local bars until they are too drunk to get served in public.
We do not however have a bar on two wheels. These guys, Edward Godden and Joseph Lewis, started the Travelling Gin Co. They bring the booze to where a well mixed gin and tonic is needed. The idea came to them quite by accident.
“Joe took an old butcher bicycle for the journey [a trip from London to Amsterdam], and attached a spirit optic to the front of the frame. He served drinks when they stopped off for the evening…it all developed from there,” says Godden.
We have a “no public drinking” law in Massachusetts so we won’t see one of these businesses pop up anytime soon. Something tells me if they set up next to the lunchtime food trucks on campus, they would be a huge success, and all productivity would cease.
