A bicycle is considered a vehicle in most states. Riding a bike while drunk can result in a DUI, just like driving a car while drunk.

well, not inherently, public intoxication is not a crime in my state just as passengers in motor vehicles having open containers of intoxicating beverages is not illegal. in other words depends on the state.

Just checked state of missouri law: Bicycles are non-motorized. No application here nor does Missouri have public intoxication law.

So, it seems mostly attached to public intoxication laws only in applicable states as it’s a non-motorized vehicle. If the state doesn’t have a public intoxication law - intoxicated bicycling is not a crime. I mean hell, ive been on bike kegger rides pulling keg/taps in the open...not to mention we have a trail through wine country where people actively bike between wineries and drink.

In Ontario I believe you can only get hit with public intoxication, no different than walking. Which is crazy because you can get a DUI on a canoe, but not a bike.

what the fuck? getting wildly drunk in a canoe in the ozarks with national park rangers and state police watching is a state sport in missouri. i think they started to try to ban full sized kegs in boats/rafts within national park administered areas on ozark mountain rivers in missouri but other than that...

300 extra people are not going to radically upset that balance.

I've heard that the 1980 film "Somewhere in Time" has a cult following and some of the fans make the trek to the Grand Hotel. I kind of like that film. Wish your way back in time through self hypnosis. Sometimes when I'm at the Hotel Del Coronado I close my eyes and pretend it is the late 1950s and I meet Marilyn Monroe while she is filming "Some Like It Hot" and she takes a liking to me. One day maybe I will open my eyes and it will be 1958 and Marilyn will be at the next table and I will say something clever or funny and make her laugh and the rest is history.

Yes and no. People have been killed or disabled for life after being hit by cyclists.

yes, the movie still has a cult following, though now that it's approaching its 40th birthday, i think you'll find less enthusiasm for it in 2019 than you might have had in 1999.

although, the Grand Hotel still hosts an annual "Somewhere In Time" themed weekend, so some people are definitely still into it.

Some of my favourite evenings on the Great Lakes are the calm ones, everything is still and glass like as far as the eye can see.

Isn't there a multi-year initiative between Great Lakes cities to significantly boost the cruise ship industry? Apparently, it was far bigger many decades ago than it is today.

Viking has announced that it will offer new cruise itineraries on the great lakes starting in 2022 with its new Expedition Class vessels.

i think these new viking expedition ships will be the largest cruise ships to ever sail the great lakes. 670' long and 30,000 tons.

that's still a very far cry from the bloated floating hotels that ply the caribbean, but still significantly bigger than the other cruise ships we've seen to date on the great lakes.

Wonder why no Chicago? Also those are crazy expensive, a 12 day cruise in Europe is like 3k, both Great Lakes options are 7k+...

Is this the same 'Viking Line' that operates large ships between Finland and Sweden/Estonia? I'd certainly be interested in a cruise from Toronto to Chicago and back. Surely there are enough people on the Great Lakes to support something like this.
