Eat, Drink, Bike

Roll through bike bars in Austin, Minneapolis, Vancouver, Los Angeles and Las Vegas

The much-discussed bustaraunt was just the beginning: New ways to eat and drink while in motion have popped up across the country, giving enriched (and literal) meaning to the idea of food travel. Here, a few of our favorite ways to eat on the go:

Biker Bar Taking to the streets by bike is a great way to explore new towns. Doing so while (safely) drinking a beer: even better. Now travelers visiting cities such as Austin and Minneapolis can enjoy a drink as part of their pedal tour. Rest assured, there's no risk of drunk driving: A sober driver steers these multiseat pedal buses, leaving passengers free to just pedal, sip and snap photos.

River Boat Captain Forget the booze cruise: Vancouver native Shannon Ronalds has completely upended sea-bound dining with his floating restaurant, the School of Fish Foundation. Constructed out of recycled materials (including a floor made from plastic bottles), the dining room was built to help educate about sustainable seafood. Last summer, Ronalds partnered with chefs in the area to throw a series of dinner parties that highlighted sustainable ingredients; he'll reprise the dinners this summer, and plans to float the structure as far as New Zealand and Capetown for future events.

On Track Soon, eaters traveling between Los Angeles and Las Vegas will have an alternative to the traffic mess that is Interstate 15. Starting next year, the X Train will run several times a day between the two cities. And those who can't wait for the on-site experience of Vegas's food scene can indulge in dishes from Rick Moonen, late of Top Chef Masters fame and the mastermind behind R. M. Seafood in Las Vegas, on board.
