Bikes & Brews

Spring evening bike tour of downtown Columbia with microbrew samples

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

Join us for a spring evening bike tour of downtown Columbia with stops for local microbrew samples.

This is a fun, easy, and social ride through downtown Columbia. Don’t want to bike? The route is easily walkable! Come dressed for an evening out on the town and ready to have some fun. 

Tickets include event registration, microbrew samples, and a Local Motion branded reusable cup.

Snacks will be provided at CycleX during check-in. Food has been generously donated by Beet Box

Tickets are available for purchase at check-in. Cash and cards are accepted.

  • 5:15 p.m. — Check-in at CycleX
  • 6:00 p.m. — Roll-out
  • 8:00 p.m. — Finish at Gunter Hans

We will provide participants with tickets and a map of the stop locations. At each stop, use your ticket to get your microbrew sample. Bikes & Brews doesn't have a set route or order for visiting the stops, so feel free to create your own route to get to each stop.

  • 21 years+ only.
  • No need for spandex or padded shorts — dress for an evening out on the town.
  • We will have a bike mechanic on the route providing SAG support in case anyone has bike trouble along the way.
  • We have Bikes & Brews t-shirts! Order one when you register. T-shirt cost is $25.

What to Expect

This is a bike ride, so ride your bike (or walk) to the start at CycleX!

Parking will also be available in the CycleX parking lot.

Please be sure to bring a photo ID — we will be verifying that each attendee is over 21.

  • The ride will be partially after dark, so YOU MUST BRING LIGHTS! To stay safe and legal, we recommend having a white front light and a red rear light. If you don’t have lights, you can purchase them up from any of the local bike shops.
  • We will provide snacks during the ride, but we encourage you to eat before you arrive.
  • Please be sure to obey all traffic laws and rules of the road are while you’re on a bike. We will expect all attendees to abide by them to stay safe and legal.
  • Bring a bike lock. Be sure to use bike racks when possible and avoid blocking sidewalks when parking your bike.

We will give you a set of tickets, a map and a list of the stops before leaving. Trade in your ticket for a beer sample at each stop.

Bikes & Brews will have all pre-ordered t-shirts ready for pickup at the event check-in.

Additional shirts will be able to be purchased on-site at CycleX for $25.

We will have a bike mechanic available for support during the ride to assist with any mechanical issues.

We will have a check-out table at Gunter Hans. Please be sure to stop at the table and check-out so we know you’ve finished the ride.
