Bikes and Brews Social Ride

Social, No Drop
Rides suitable for cyclists who are new to the sport (or who have not been on a bike for some years), family-friendly rides or any riders that feel a need for some mentoring. Note: please note that minors under the age of 16 cannot participate in rides unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Families with children should, in any event, confirm with the ride leader ahead of time that the ride will be suitable for their needs.

Targeted towards riders who have a few years in the saddle, who have developed some riding confidence and fitness and feel ready to move to the next level. Could attract more experienced riders who are looking for a relaxed or less aggressive ride.

Limited to experienced riders with superior bike handling skills and who are comfortable with a fast pace (probably including single and/or double pace-line riding) and/or hilly terrain, and the possibility of heavily trafficked roads. Advanced rides are less likely to be "no-drop" unless identified as such.

Join us on our next Bike & Brews Social Ride! This will be a 10 mile social bike ride where we'll finish back to the Brewtorium for a beer! Enjoy $1 off beers for all participating cyclists!

-The route has no big hills and will be mostly on a protected bike path and bike lanes.
- It will include the Red Line Trail, Justin, Shoal Creek Blvd and several neighborhoods surround The Brewtorium. The route will be a little different than the first social ride last month.
- There will be a water/rest stop half way.
- This is a no drop fun ride at about a 12-15mph pace.

We will meet up at 6:45 PM in front of the Brewtorium with wheels down at 7:00 PM and should back by 8:30 PM. Keep in mind The Brewtorium stops serving our full menu at 9PM, so we suggest ordering dinner as soon as we get back or coming in before the ride for dinner. After 9:00 our late night menu will be available with soft pretzels or Mac n' Beer cheese.

It is recommended to bring water, bike lights, reflective or bright clothing & a helmet. We're working on music for the ride, but if you have speakers, feel free to bring will make for a more lively ride! If your bike needs a little work, please give our friends at Monkey Wrench Bicycles a call at (512) 467-2453!

There is a large bike rack out front and if the rack fills up you are welcome to lock your bike to the railing on the front porch.
