Cycling drunk is (in this writer’s country, at least), just as illegal as getting behind the wheel of a car intoxicated. Similar to devices that exist for motor vehicle drivers, a security device now exists to prevent such poor choices.

The Alchoho-Lock is the brainchild of Koowho and while the aluminium shackle won’t technically prevent you (hopefully not you) from cycling home, it will send a text to your partner’s smartphone warning them and allowing remote control of the lock.

A battery within will offer around 40 breath tests per charge. At $250 and with the potential to land you in hot water with the other half, we expect most will spend opt to spend their cash on a cheaper Gold standard lock and the change perhaps on a post ride beer.
