Who wants to cruise downtown in a cab or in your own vehicle? We prefer the open-air Cycle Pub!

We absolutely love downtown Las Vegas, drinking and riding a bike. And, thanks to owner/operator Russell Davis, we did all three as we climbed aboard his Cycle Pub Vegas. Okay, it's not really a pub, as riders aren’t allowed to drink and pedal at the same time, but Davis’ bicycle built for 14 took us on a unique pub crawl to our favorite downtown drinkeries -- where we moseyed up to the bar for Moscow Mules and Stellas.

Our trip began at the Mob Bar, where we were given the ground rules, and signed waivers. We supply the pedal power and the tunes while Davis navigates, steers and applies the brakes. As we made our way to our first stop, the new Commonwealth, lookie loos and iPhone shutterbugs took pix and video of the Cycle Pub while we tooled along at about 5 mph, and rang cowbells.

The Cycle Pub is a street-legal rolling party and even motorists slowed down and gawked as we made our way from the Fremont East area to the Arts District. Our next two stops -- Lady Silvia and Artifice -- attracted the same attention from hipsters and tourists alike.

Do you need to be a chemically enhanced Lance Armstrong to power the Cycle Pub? Well, our Cycle Pubbies ranged in age from 21 to 70-something so a certain amount of fitness is required to propel the bicycle.

The standard tour of downtown Las Vegas is a two-hour ride, which costs $420 -- or $30 a person if you have a full crew of 14. Davis is trying to convince the puritans our esteemed City Council to allow alcohol on board so we'll keep you posted on any loosening of liquor consumption restrictions.
