First Annual Philly Bikes and Beers Ride Happening This Month

bikes and beers3

How cool is this? Later this month, the first annual Philly Bikes & Beers ride comes to town, an oh-so-Philly version of a ride that was popular in San Diego earlier this year. It involves a 14-mile group bike ride around town, with four stops along the way to sample beers.


The fun is happening on September 28th, with waves of cyclists beginning at 9:30, 10, 10:30 and 11 a.m. The group will leave from Yards Brewing Company (901 North Delaware Avenue), then head across town to Rembrandt's in Fairmount, where they'll be serving up a beer brewed specifically for this event by Oregon-based Deschutes Brewing Company. Then it's off to Dock Street Brewery in West Philly, then McGillin's Ale House in Center City, before heading back to Yards.

The ride is open to all ability levels, and those who register by September 14th are guaranteed a t-shirt. It's $45 to register, and you have to be 21 or older, of course. Twenty percent of the proceeds goes to the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.
