Saturday, May 4, Noon to 5pm
This year the ride will make five stops (Moerlein Lager House, Keystone Bar & Grill, The Elusive Cow, Rock Bottom Brewery, Mayberry Gastropub) along a nine-mile route, and will start at the OTR Biergarten and end at Market Wines. The route is fairly level and should be doable for cyclists of all ages and abilities. Follow the #bikebrews or @UrbanCincy on the day of the event to find out where we are if you don't plan on participating from start to finish.
There is no requirement to eat or drink at any of the stops, but we do strongly encourage you to socialize and support the businesses we stop at along the route. https://www.facebook.com/events/121758514688750/
- The Right Angle is the Best Angle
Always slow down and cross streetcar tracks at a 60 to 90 degree angle. Crossing incorrectly can result in your front tire sliding on the rail or geting stuck in the gap next to the rail, which can cause you to fall from your bicycle.
