Pedal City Beer Garden

Pedal City, the company that owns the pedal carts you see cruising downtown, now has a home at 1215 W. Main St. Eventually it's going to be more than just a departure point, however. Here's what owner Janelle Ford had to say about it: "We are going to have our location open to the public. I am putting in a beer garden with ping pong, corn hole, a bar, and various activities. Getting the garden set up and our alcoholic permit is moving slow. We have a lot of bike bookings that are all now leaving from that location and using the garden as is right now. We will soon be working on putting in a small brewery and bar in the building."
