The 2013 East Bay Tour de Biere

The 2013 edition of the Tour de Biere is our 3rd annual bike ride and brewery tour through some of the finest Bay Area breweries.  We are once again excited to be part of San Francisco Beer Week.  You will get a chance to enjoy multiple brewery tours from skilled master brewers and enjoy complimentary tastings and discounts from our participating breweries.   As usual, all proceeds for this event will go to the East Bay Bike Coalition – an organization who’s working to promote bicycling as an everyday means of transportation and recreation in the East Bay.

Itinerary

(may be subject to change)

 

Route

The ride will be about 20 miles long.  The longest stretch without stops will be about 6 miles.

More details coming soon!

Getting there and getting home

We highly encourage everyone to take public transit to Drakes and home from Pyramid.  Drake’s brewing is a mellow 12 minute bike ride from San Leandro BART (please take the bike-friendly Williams St. rather than Davis St.), and Pyramid Alehouse is a 9 minute ride from the North Berkeley BART.  Once again, we are not looking to make a scene, so please bike safely and be friendly.  We’re out here to ride our bikes and enjoy some good brews with our fellow beer drinkers, brewers and cyclists.

You must be 21 or older to attend this event.  We will be riding rain or shine!

 

Day of the ride

  • Bring Your ID – Your ID is your ticket. You don’t need to print anything out. We’ll be checking 21-and-overness and crossing your name off the attendee list as you check-in.
  • Bring Water and Snacks – You’ll want to hydrate between breweries, and you may want to munch on some food along the way.
  • Bring Tools and Flat Fixing Gear – You don’t want to be left behind because you couldn’t fix your tube.
  • Bring Lunch Money – El Taco Bike will be setting up shop at Linden St, so lunchtime noms will be available for purchase.  A few of the breweries will also be offering discounts on beers and food in addition to the tastings.
  • Bring a Lock – Some breweries will have places for us to store our bikes, but some will require us to park in the street.
  • Bring Lights – By the time we’re done at Pyramid the sun will be setting.
  • Expect to ride about 20 miles – This might be a lot or a little to you. Plan accordingly.
  • Follow @thegrandcru on twitter – We’ll be using the twitter to communicate to the group throughout the day, so you should follow us. You’re welcome to use the event hashtag #tdb2013 to communicate with the rest of the group.
