COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Columbus City Council discussed the first ever party bikes to come to the Fountain City and Phenix City.

Pedal Pub operates the party bikes in 47 cities in the US and Canada, including Atlanta, Nashville and Savannah.

Each bike can hold 15 passengers, a driver and security.

People hopping on a tour in Phenix City are only allowed to bring alcoholic drinks onto the bike from restaurants and bars in Phenix City’s entertainment district.

The Pedal Pub representative also discussed their current policy for alcohol consumption in Columbus.

“If you bring your own alcohol, that alcohol must remain on the bus at all times. If you enter another establishment and you purchase alcohol, that alcohol must be done or consumed before you re-enter the bike. And so we’re not selling any alcohol. We’re not providing any alcohol,” said Antwane Darby.

The Council did not decide on the Columbus alcohol issue as of now. But, non-alcoholic tours on the bikes will begin in Columbus and Phenix City on Oct. 7.

The tour takes riders through Downtown Columbus to experience historic sights and hidden gems.

In Phenix City, riders will be taken to see the Chattahoochee River, along with stops at local breweries and historic sites.
