Shebikin' pedal tours
Shebikin' is a motor-less, pedal-powered trolly for up to 15 people—and yes, it's BYOB. The trolly comes equipped with 10 seats with pedals but also two seats without pedals and a bench seat in the back for those not looking to work for their drinks.
Guests are permitted to bring their own beer or wine coolers, but hard liquor is not allowed. The limit of alcohol on board is 36 ounces per person, and riders must show ID to drink.
Tours begin at NZ's Bar and Grill at 1022 Michigan Avenue in Sheboygan and travel through the main streets of Sheboygan including 8th Street and Michigan Avenue, both of which are jam packed with local bars.
If you're looking for more of a scenic tour, Shebikin' can also take groups along the lakefront and riverfront to enjoy some of Sheboygan's iconic landmarks.
Shebikin' hosts private groups and special events but also offers Mix N' Meet events for people who want to give it a try but don't have enough guests to fill a tour.
