    So if you are on a bicycle drunk, is that a DWI?

    In IA the law is "operating a vehicle...."
    does not say "motor vehicle".
    There is also a "public intoxication" statute, however, since operating a bicycle involves balance and inebriated individuals are usually lacking balance it is rarely a problem. ;D

    In most States, yes. I believe you can even get a DUI on a Skateboard.

    I knew a kid in Kent, OH who had multiple for getting drunk in his wheelchair... he was paraplegic. He had 3, he'd be driving down the middle of the street, drunk as a skunk.
