Last night while walking down Clematis Street (in between the opening of the Gallery at the Palm Beach Photographic Center & a Downtown Neighborhood Association meeting, I ran into the grand opening of Cycle Party.

The Cycle Party is a 17-seater party bus that gets pedaled from bar to bar. The company behind it already had cycles in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami and the grand opening represented their expansion into Downtown West Palm Beach.

From the Cycle Party Website:

The Cycle Party group bike seats 15 riders and the Cycle Party driver. As a 15-person quadracycle, Cycle Party is perfect for any celebration and all social outings, including: birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, ice cream socials, fund-raisers , church outings, progressive dinners, sightseeing, tailgating, pub crawls, singles mixers, parades (we are an instant float!) or YOUR VERY OWN REASON!

One of the big requests that we hear is that we need more things to do in the downtown area. Last month we had Visit West Palm open up their Catamaran cruises as well as canoeing and Jet Skiing. Now with this new addition gives an additional reason and a new way to come down to, and explore, our downtown area!


If you’re not ready to cycle around for the evening, no worries, the downtown Quadricle has a new feature is a 3-person lounge in the back, as well as a Pole, which no doubt has many uses. We rode around downtown, thanks to the electronic assist we were able to easily able to ride up the Clematis Street hill.
