MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that legalizes drinking on pedal pubs.

Pedal pubs are multiple-person bicycles companies use to ferry riders to and from taverns.

A driver steers while multiple riders sit at a bar mounted behind him, each with his or her own pedal-and-chain assembly.

Riders pump away toward the next watering hole, hoisting cold ones along the way.

The bill allows drinking on pedal pubs unless a municipality adopts ordinances negating the exception.

The governor signed the bill on Friday.
