I'm sorry for the late notice, but Bike & Brew is on like Donkey Dong.

This year we will be touring a few breweries, and will also be part of the food tour. The food tour is open to anyone, not just participants in the bike tour.

We will hit up these breweries:

Motor City Brew Works
Traffic Jam & Snug
Batch Brewery

The food tour will be at Batch Brewery.

We will also be cycling along the riverfront, and riding through Roosevelt Park next to the iconic Michigan Central Station.

This ride will be pretty chill. Slow pace, nice scenery, and beer!

We are prepared to pick up bikes and drive people back to ICHQ if anyone gets too drunk. Be safe!

I'm not going to collect any money. First, I want to gauge participation to see how many bikes we'll need. If there are a lot of participants, we may rent some bikes, and I'll collect a couple bucks from everyone to spread out the cost. Bring your own bike if you can!

Bring some beer and food money. I'm guessing around $30-$50.

Let me know if you're in by responding to this thread by Wednesday, June 24, 5:00pm if you're in.. We need this information to figure out how many bikes we need.

I'm still working on the route, but I'll post it tomorrow.

In so far:

    Here is a link to tomorrow's route:


    I highly recommend downloading the MapMyRide app, which is available for iOS and Android. You can log your ride and share it with your friends. :-) We'll be riding at a pace of 5-8mph.

    We've got all of the bikes secured for this ride. It will cost $80 to rent the bikes we don't have. Do you guys think we should split this among the group? There are 8 people who didn't bring bikes, so if you can all chip in $10 each that will work out great.

    We'll need to meet up at 3:00 to get ready. One group will be heading to Virginia Park by bike, and the other will go by car. That is where we will pick up the rental bikes and begin the journey!

    Other than that, we'll need to return the rental bikes between 9-10pm.

    Email me if you have any questions. norm.witte@gmail.com

    Apparently I didn't see this thread. I thought I was already signed up, but that must have been Eventbrite. Anyway, let me know if it's possible for me to rent a bike and jump in tomorrow.

    Nevermind, I just realized I'm going to be way too tired to ride a bike and drink brews tomorrow if I'm not asleep yet.

    I will be driving with @LeahVoice to Batch, but probably coming back to ICHQ afterwards.

    Start gathering in the carriage house at 3:30 for the bike tour. We're going to need to start fitting people and hopefully get started at 4:00.

    If you didn't bring a bike, please bring $10 to chip in for rental.
