But the bike that I’m writing about, as you can see from the picture, is over the top even for this group. It’s a tall bike, with a couch instead of a bicycle seat. It has wheels, and can be ridden on land. But the wheels have paddles, and there’s a frame under there with pontoons attached, so it can go in the water as well. It has a table that can hold your beer. I’m not completely sure, but I think you steer by spinning the table around. Just be sure you keep an eye on your beer. The pontoons are made from 55 gallon plastic drums with the ends cut off, epoxied together, and filled with expanding foam insulation.
