Peddler's Creamery: The Ice Cream Bike Shop

Peddler's Creamery

A bike that makes ice cream just may be the best incentive to get people to start really exercising. If at the end of a long bike ride were the promise of a gallon of milk chocolate ice cream, we're pretty sure the streets would be rapidly congested with two-wheel traffic.

And the best part is, it exists! But sadly, not for people like you and I (by which we mean gluttons) to purchase. It's only the ice cream that is churned by this special bike that's for sale -- and it's provided by the artisinal ice cream bicycle shop, Peddler's Creamery.

Peddler's Creamy, an LA-based ice cream company, has reinvented the ice cream truck. Say good-bye to the neon-pink Screw Ball sold from an exhaust-polluting, music-blaring truck and welcome ice cream made from organic ingredients, that was processed entirely by human power. It's a new day for road-side sweets.

Peddler's Creamy started off as a one-bike operation, churning 5 gallons of ice cream per every four miles peddled. It has now grown to a 6-man operation with its own store-front, and an impressive offering of flavors. But don't worry, all ice cream is still made by bike.
