Bikes & Brews

A bicycle tour of Columbia’s breweries

We are happy to have Bikes & Brews back again! Join us for a fall evening bike tour of downtown Columbia with stops for local microbrew samples.

Stay tuned for our next event in 2022!

What to Expect

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

If you do need to drive to the start, you can park in the parking lot at Cyclex.

We will ask for each person’s ID when you check in to verify that everybody is over 21, so bring your photo identification.

  • 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 pick 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 you know what the traffic laws and rules of the road are while you’re on a bike. We will expect everyone to abide by them to stay safe and legal.
  • Bring a bike lock. Not all locations will have bike racks but please use them when possible. Please don’t block sidewalks when parking your bike.

We will give you a set of tickets, a map, and list of the stops. When you arrive at the stop, you will trade in your ticket for a beer sample.

If you pre-ordered a t-shirt, we will have it ready for you to pick up when you check-in for the event.

If you didn’t pre-order but are interested in buying a shirt, we will have some available to buy on-site at Cyclex.

If you have any difficulty with your bike while you’re out on the ride, we will have a mechanic along the ride to help you out.

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

If we don’t check you off our list we will desperately call you and try to track you down to be sure you’re safe.
