It's hard riding a bike with one hand, especially when you're off balance because you're trying to carry something. I did the math:
1 can of beer = 12 oz
24 cans of beer = 228 oz
228 oz = 2.25 gallons
2.25 gallons = 18 lbs
This was taking his life in his hands biking down a busy street just so he could get his drink on. That's dedication!
