Boulder, Colo. (June 2011) - A new local company is sure to turn heads in downtown Fort Collins this summer. MyHandleBar is partnering with The Fort Collins Brewery to launch the giant party bike on June 17.
MyHandleBar is a 16-passenger party bike complete with a designated driver used to cruise around the bars and breweries of Fort Collins. Colorado native and serial entrepreneur Theresa Preston founded MyHandleBar earlier this year with operations in Fort Collins and Boulder. The bike, which originated in the Netherlands, combines exercise with tasting some of Colorado’s best food and drinks.
- Free rides on the bike (for all people over the age of 18)
- Food from Gravity Ten Twenty at The Fort Collins Brewery
- Free music and entertainment
- Free beer (for the first 100 people)
- Raffles and giveaways
“I originally saw this concept in a magazine and thought it was amazing,” said Preston. “Given the physically conscience nature and love of craft beer that Coloradoans have, I was certain that this would be appealing to a lot of people. Since I am local, my focus is on local partnerships, local bars and local beer like The Fort Collins Brewery.”
Known locally as the Brew-Muda Triangle, the Ft. Collins Brew-Muda Experience offers a tour of some of the nation’s best craft breweries including New Belgium Brewing, Ft. Collins Brewery and O’Dells Brewery…with a few local bars’ small craft beers thrown in along the way.
Stops Can Include:
- New Belgium Brewery (Closed Sundays and Mondays)
- Ft. Collins Brewery (Closed on Sundays)
- O’Dells Brewery (Closed on Sundays)
- Old Chicagos
- Washington’s Bar and Grill
MyHandleBar is a giant 16-passenger bar-bike with several pedaling seats and is an awesome eco-friendly way to cruise around Boulder and Fort Collins with friends or crawl from pub to pub sampling local brews and site seeing. This bike is the ideal Colorado party rental when you’re looking to have fun in the sun, burn some calories and bond with friends.
The bike was originally called “fietscafe,” which is a loose Dutch translation for “Bike Café.” And, like a great many out-of-the-box ideas, this one started in a pub, was spurred on by a friendly wager and was literally sketched out on a bar napkin.
