Thanks for a great 2013 Tour de Biere!

Hey there. We hope you had a great San Francisco beer week and an excellent Tour de Biere 2013.   We had excellent weather and excellent beers (and cookies!), and hopefully made new riding and drinking buddies.  Now that things have calmed down a bit, we’d like to share our fundraising data and photos with you.

We were able to donate $1317 to the East Bay Bicycle Coalition this year.  This is a record amount!   This was 90% of your entry fees.

Jenny Oh Hatfield wrote a nice piece in KQED’s Bay Area Bites about the ride: http://blogs.kqed.org/bayareabites/2013/02/17/the-3rd-annual-tour-de-biere-an-east-bay-bicycle-brewery-tour/

as did Gene Anderson from Our Oaklandhttp://blog.ouroakland.net/2013/02/tour-de-biere-2013.html

November’s Ride | Drake’s Brewing and the Lake Chabot Bike Trail

Saturday, November 26th
Meet at 11:30, roll out at noon

Drake’s Barrel House
1933 Davis St
San Leandro, CA
Greetings to the Cru!

This month we will be taking advantage of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend to visit the new barrel house at Drake’s Brewing in San Leandro. These guys have been a key player in East Bay brewing over the last twenty years, but until recently have been flying under the radar. We are excited to check out their brand new facilities.

Our ride will take us through San Leandro and around the main bike loop of Lake Chabot Regional Park. The ride is a bit shorter than usual – only twenty miles – but makes up for that with ruggedness. There are several steep climbs, so make sure you go easy on the turkey. note: some parts of the ride will be on hard-pack trails with a few rocks. Bringing a hybrid/cross/mountain bike might be a little more comfortable. Bryan notes that it’s rideable on a road bike but it’ll be slower going.

Here’s the ride:

And here’s the brewery:


We hope you can make it!
