3-17-17: PINT RIDERS CAN NOW IMBIBE WHILE RIDING.

PATRONS ON THE “PINT RIDER” CAN NOW DRINK ALCOHOL WHILE PEDDLING THE GROUP BIKE THROUGH MEDFORD. YESTERDAY THE MEDFORD CITY COUNCIL VOTED TO ALLOW RIDERS TO ENJOY AN ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE *WHILE ON THE BIKE. PREVIOUSLY, THEY COULD ONLY DRINK AT THE RESTAURANTS AND BARS THEY STOPPED AT. BUT NOW, PATRONS CAN POUR THEIR OWN BEER OR WINE INTO PLASTIC CUPS, AND TAKE THEM ALONG FOR THE RIDE. THE BIKE OFFERS TOURS THROUGHOUT THE WEEK. IT CAN HOLD UP TO 15 PEOPLE, AND HAS PEDALS FOR EACH RIDER.
