SAN ANTONIO -- Mobile pubs that can fit almost 20 people could be coming to San Antonio streets soon, after city council approved an ordinance allowing group cycles.
Imagine you and 15 of your friends all connected to the same bike. In some places, they take it one step further. They take the bikes and allow you to drink beer. There's the people cycling on either side, providing the human power, while another person steers.
In places like Austin, they're known as beer bikes.
"Cities that do allow alcohol, they're definitely having a good time," said Joey Villareal, owner of Blue Star Brewery and Bike Shop.
The San Antonio Police Department says drinking will be allowed just in the Downtown business districts, in areas like the Pearl or Blue Star. Villareal thinks it's something that could be successful here.
"I don't know for sure, but I got a gut feeling it could be okay," Villarreal told us.
His main concern isn't alcohol, but traffic flow. The group cycle's max speed is 5 miles per hour.
"They will travel slower, and there's going to be some frustrated people behind them." explained Villarreal.
SAPD says the law will take effect in 9 days. City council also changed it from horse drawn carriages, to equine drawn carriages. So, technically, a zebra could pull you, but you're more likely to see a mule.
