CDA Braces for Beer Bike

Three city council members (English, Evans, and Wood) approved the return of a “party bike” tour to Coeur d’Alene. Dan Gookin communicated with neighbors and vowed to remove the item from the consent calendar–a move which prompts discussion and an additional vote specific to this issue. 

Gary Cooper, who operates a segway tour in the city proposed the pedal pub. His company will offer two different tours for 14 including a family-friendly scenic tour without alcohol or a 21+ BYOB tour. The dry tour includes stops at the Roosevelt Inn, Fort Sherman, and the Carousel. The 21+ tour is slated to traverse Coeur d’Alene’s historic and posh Sander’s beach neighborhood on Front Ave and Lakeshore Drive. The party bike tours are not new to Coeur d’Alene but received negative news coverage in other cities here, here, and here. The councilors who gave initial approval cited “city code” that paved the way for the pedal pub. The city council will vote on the beer bike tours on Tuesday, June 18th, at 6:00 pm in the city library’s community room.
