Port City Brewing Company is organizing a ride around Alexandria on Saturday, October 18th. The ride is a relatively easy loop out to NVCC and back scheduled to leave at 11am from their brewery at 3950 Wheeler Avenue. It’s a great chance to try some tasty beer and hang out with some cool people from the comfort of your favorite ride’s saddle, so come on out!

Are you a bicyclist who loves beer and lives in the DMV? Be a part of Port City’s Second Ever Pedals “N’ Pints ride! Work up a thirst and return to plentiful brews and food from Doug the Food Dude.

It will be a little more than a 10-mile route from the front door of the Tasting Room out to the park, up to NVCC and back. There’s one slight climb, but otherwise the ride is open to all level of bicyclists. Mountain, cyclocross, or “hybrid” bikes are perfect for this ride. Due to debris on the path and the occasional patch of gravel or dirt, road bikes are possible, but not recommended.

Bicycle Pro Shop will be out with a shop tent and basic tools to assist riders with small repairs and on hand during the ride to assist with any mechanical issues.

All participants will need to sign a waiver beforehand. Any riders 14 years old and younger are required to wear a helmet, per law, but all riders are encouraged to wear helmets.
