PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — For five years, Big Red Pedal Tours has been operating in Old City and Center City. The pedicycle, open-air tour bus is mainly powered by participants pedaling between drinking establishments. There is a small assist motor to help get up hills if needed. 

Jessica Nartey, general manger of Big Red Pedal Tours, says they have a new Fishtown tour, running two and a half hours, which includes stops to breweries.

"The tour takes off from the SugarHouse Casino, goes right into Fishtown," Nartey said. "We start at Fishtown Brew Pub. They have their own brewing house. And then we pedal on to Evil Genius, with a beer garden that's right outside, and they have craft beer as well. And then we go to Kostas, which is a city favorite and a beer garden as well. And then we go back to SugarHouse to a brand-new beer garden called Fishtown Hops."
