It's the new place to be seen in New York - PoleRiders, the portable stage and brainchild of former pedicab driver Andrew Katzander. A chance bike ride past a strip club last year provided the lightbulb moment, and Katzander went about creating this custom bike. PoleRiders  earns stares and cheers at parades and random intersections. "People throw money at us out of car windows and run screaming out of bars when they see us," says Katzander. Though it started merely as a fun idea, PoleRiders has become a second job for Katzander, who's an industrial designer by day. In addition to catching regular joy rides, you can book them for special events. "I can't be specific on rates, but I can say pole dancers don't come cheap," he warns. Parents can breathe easy: While their moves are risqué, the dancers--a mix of acrobats, athletes and amateurs--keep their clothes on. Wanna see PoleRiders in the flesh? Katzander's not saying where he'll pop up; just look for the gyrating dancer amid sonic blasts of "Cherry Pie." .Picture:  21 August 2009: Universal News and Sport (Scotland).All pictures must be credited to  www.universalnewsandsport.com.(0ffice) 0844 884 51 22
