SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill allowing beer bikes to operate on city streets.

The governor's office tweeted a photo of Brown signing the bill on a beer bike in Sacramento Sunday with his wife, Anne Gust Brown, and their two dogs before going on a ride.

Also on board was Sen. Richard Pan, a Sacramento Democrat who crafted the bill to create a vehicle safety standard for bike buses that allow up to 15 people to pedal at once.

Beer bikes have been popping up in Sacramento and San Diego as a riding tour, often with stops at bars and restaurants.

The bill leaves local governments to decide if alcohol can be served on board.

Brown previously signed bills legalizing beer tasting and wine tasting at farmers markets.
