This Friday marks the start of Philly Beer Week, which promises to be bigger and better than ever. This Saturday, we’ll kick it off by having a Beer by Bike event touring 5 of the city’s breweries. Details, as noted at the Beer Week site:
Join us Saturday morning for a citywide bicycle tour of five Philadelphia breweries. We’ll start at PBC and take a leisurely bike ride to Yards, Triumph, Nodding Head, and end at Dock St. This is a pay as you go event, so bring some cash to sample each brewery’s creations. All types of bicycles and skill levels are welcome, but helmets are required, and be sure to bring a lock to secure your bike. Please: no scooters, rollerblades, skateboards, or other fun forms of transportation! This is a bicycle only event.
The ride and registration begins at PBC, 2439 Amber St at 11am, and this ride will be limited to the first 100 people.
See you all at PBC this Saturday at 11am!!
I actually missed this month’s ride due to a scheduling conflict. However thanks to the vigor and diligence of some dedicated beer lovers and bike riders, the ride happened and was quite a success. I didn’t get the final headcount, but it looks like about 10-12 people rode a fun little loop through Fairmount Park on their way to Dock Street Brewing in West Philly. While I couldn’t be there, I enjoyed this ride vicariously through pictures:

So if you’re bummed about the ride not happening tomorrow, there is plenty going on this weekend instead.
Obviously there is the Gathering of the Gourds at Iron Hill in West Chester, which will happen without us.
Also on Saturday, there is Bloktoberfest. Looks like a great beer list, and sounds like a great time, rain or not.
On Sunday there is 2 awesome events going on, both raindates from last weekend’s washout. At 10am, get your mountain bike up to Pennypack Park and get ready to get muddy for the Pennypack’s Revenge Poker Run. I just rode up there for the first time this week, and it is a ton of fun. This is going to be an awesome race/ride/funtime.
After a hose down, head down to Dock St for the 2nd annual Biketoberfest. This year the price is more than reasonable, so you have no reason not to go.
If you plan your weekend well, you could very easily have an epic 2 day stretch of bikes, beer and awesomeness. Hopefully I’ll see you at some point this weekend, preferably with a beer in one hand and a bike in the other!
