Biking, Beer and the Beach

Sign up soon for a 65-mile ride that ends with your feet in the sand and beer in your hand (sure sounds good to us!)

Ride for Philly's disadvantaged kids - and enjoy a beer - at the Irish Pub Tour de Shore

A few years ago, scientists at Spain’s Granada University found that carbohydrate-rich beer can serve as a viable alternative to your post-workout sports drink. Sound too good to be true? Test it out yourself at the 24th Annual Irish Pub Tour de Shore on July 31. The 65-mile bike ride begins at Philly’s Irish Pub on Walnut Street and winds through South Jersey before ending at Atlantic City’s own Irish Pub and Inn, where a beer-laden celebration awaits sweating cyclists. Proceeds from registration fees and each entrant’s minimum $150 donation benefit the Irish Pub Children’s Foundation, Inc., a non-profit dedicated to serving needy children throughout the region. Registration caps off at 1,300 participants, so sign up today before this popular event fills up! — Kathryn Siegel

$10 before June 1 ($20 after) plus $150 donation, July 31, 7AM, Irish Pub, 2007 Walnut Street, 215-568-5603,
