I shall keep you informed of developments.

OK, but how do you speed date on this vehicle, I assume it will stop every ten minutes or so for the contenders { not a typo:   ::) } to change seats?

How much does that thing weigh? I note with interest it`s only a cartoon in the presentation so probably hasn`t been bought/doesn`t exist yet. Is there a passenger weight limit? what if a Cyril Smith look a like gets on? would you be expected to pedal him along? You probably wouldn`t  be allowed to kick him off- anti fattist laws would be breached. Is it going on the public road or is there a promanade in Brighton? never been there. There is a mixed use prom in Morecambe but anyone daring to cycle along it is met with hostile glares and comments from the usual cretins who holiday in Morecambe and use the prom to eat fish and chips and empty the dog.  Not that it stops me, I can whack `em on their fat a.r.s.e.s with my bar mirror and be on my way before they can even turn round.

I believe there is still an active legal battle going on here over the Beerbike.

I'm guessing that it can't be very different to https://bestarcycle.en.alibaba.com/product/60614282139-802064044/2018_new_design_beer_bike_manufacturer_for_fifteen_person.html but with wider tyres. Only the bodystyling would differ.

Weighing in at 1.3 tonnes, 12 pedalling, that's over 100kg deadweight per head, (assuming a full load) plus non-working passengers. Hard work, I'd think.

Ryde Esplanade, where this is planned for is dead flat. Starting from the Pierhead, then road all the way to Appley 2km, same for return. According to tide maybe 6km ride on firm flat sand as well.

And it's eco-friendly! Everyone's supposed to be excited about that.

Looking at the link is does have an electric motor adding >500w with a 3500w motor. Given the average wattage of a leisure cyclist of 150w multiplied by 15 is 2,250w is probably not that hard on the flat, going from Caleta to Pozo Negro however, could cause problems! ;D

Wouldn't be able to use it in Fuerteventura as it won't have a european certificate of conformity.
