APPLETON - The city council passed a ban on so-called "pedal pubs" at its meeting Wednesday.

The rolling cycles, which can carry as many as 16 people, have been used as rolling taverns in some cities. While the cycles themselves would be allowed, they could not serve alcohol, said Ald. Jeff Jirschele.
