The pedaling is real. So are the bicycle seats. The beer is too, when the bike makes its stops at local pubs. Quadriceps felt the burn as a group of riders on Tuesday pedaled the trolley-looking "beer bike" up an incline from The Coeur d'Alene Resort to Sherman Avenue. A warm greeting at the summit was offered by a friendly Coeur d'Alene police officer as he rolled by slowly in his cruiser. "It's kind of fun to get out in the community and have everybody pedal around and see what Coeur d'Alene has to offer," said Mark Brown, owner-operator of Socially Geared Coeur d'Alene/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Do you plan to ride the "beer bike" to local pubs this summer?
