What is a Beer Bike? A beer bike, also known as a party bike or pedal pub, is a custom-made mobile bar (kind of) on wheels, powered by the collective pedalling efforts of its passengers. It features a central bar table, comfortable seats, and a designated driver (often called a "captain") to ensure everyone's safety during the journey.  The group sits together, sips on refreshing drinks, and explores the city while peddling merrily through its streets.

The Ultimate History Of The Stag Do

The concept of a " stag do " or "stag party" has a long history dating back several centuries. The origins of these events can be traced back to ancient civilisations where men would gather for a final celebration before one of their own got married. In ancient Greece, a pre-wedding celebration was held for the groom-to-be, known as a "symposium". This was a celebration of male bonding, where the groom and his mates would gather for a night of drinking, storytelling and partying. In medieval Europe, the "stag night" was a similar gathering of male friends to celebrate the upcoming nuptials. The night would often involve drinking and celebrations, sometimes to the point of debauchery. This tradition continued into the Renaissance period, where wealthy men would host elaborate feasts and events to celebrate the upcoming wedding. As time progressed, the concept of the stag do evolved and became more formalised. In the 19th and early 20th centuries,

Why book your summer stag do early?

  There's a classic saying "don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today, especially your stag do ". OK I have added "especially your stag do", but there's a hell of a lot to say about old proverbs, these are wise words, words that you should integrate into your life.  Putting things off will only create a nagging voice in your head saying, "you haven't done this and you haven't done that", and getting drunk will only temporarily mute the voice, and believe me it will come back louder when you're sober. Booking your stag do early will mean you will get the accommodation and activities of your choice, get the best price (as these days in travel, the closer you get to the date the more expensive the rooms, flights or activities become) and you'll get rid of that nagging voice! What's stopping you? Is it money? Most stag do companies like DesignaVenture allow you to put down a small deposit of £30* and then the lads can
