Bike Gang Brewery Tour

Sat, Oct 31, 12:00pm - 6:00pm

This Ride has a 25 mile loop and a 45 mile loop. 

Meet at FreeWheel on the Greenway at Noon (Optionally, you could park at Steel Toe, meet up with us on the way to LTD to keep you under 20 miles for the day). Ride all together to LTD Brewery in Hopkins, an 8 mile ride. Both long and short leave towards Excelsior with the long group making a higher pace with a fair bit of drafting involved. The long group goes out to Enki for a quick bump and heads back to Excelsior to meet up with the short group who rode straight to Excelsior Brewing from LTD (a 9 mile ride). We all ride back to Steel Toe with an optional long route around on Cedar Lake Trail/Kenilworth/Greenway to Steel Toe, probably a 5 mile extension. 

Your faithful trail guide will be on the long loop out, but Excelsior Brewing is right off the trail, 1 block away. Sit tight and relax at Excelsior, we will return with news from Enki. This is a Halloween Ride, I'll be in my effective urban cyclist costume.

Bike Gang Rules (suggestions) 
Bike trails preferred
Single digit miles b/w breweries (true for the short loop, barely)
One beverage per stop (I will break this rule) 
Route Modifications Unlikely
The only rule that won't change is that this is a no-drop ride within a loop distance, one for all, all for one.
Feel free to invite fun friends.
