If you all haven't seen the national ads nor heard about it, here is the website for the Bike and Brew Festival. This idea was just started in earnest in January and already has tens of thousands of dollars of support from local entities for marketing. We are hoping this will be one of the biggest bike festivals in the country for years to come.

I'm helping to organize the bike portion of the events. We'll still be adding more events and clinics in the coming weeks. Since this is the first year things are not as polished as they will be in future years. We'll likely still have another couple clinics on Sunday and a dirt jump event at La Tierra.

Here is a request for volunteers and the perks:

Hi Team,

Just wanted to put our Volunteer Worksheet in the hands of each of you. Please feel free to distribute this far and wide to good people who like to support these kinds of projects.

Unofficially, Tim Fowler and the Fat Tire Society are coordinators of our volunteers and ride leaders on Saturday ... but myself and Nichole Breihan will also be point people on the project with regards to the Friday night event.

Thanks for all your help, and we will be meeting late this week for a marketing and events committee strategy push... just 60 days to go!!!

Sincerely,

Chris Goblet

I'm here from Houston, Texas for this! I will only be able to attend on Friday for the "Bike Instead of Work MTB Ride" - any idea what the route will be? The site says TBD, so I don't know what I've signed up for really...

There's really only 2 trail systems easily accessible via bicycle from downtown - La Tierra or Dale Ball. My guess is it'll be one of those two in which case you're most likely looking at 10-12mi of trail with a couple of additional miles pedaling to the trailhead. Hopefully they'll update the Bike and Brew website. Other than what time and where to meet, it's pretty vague regarding ride details.

That ride doesn't have details, but the others do. It will likely be DB but depends on who shows up. Don't expect an update.

All the trails are accessible from downtown, just depends how much you want to pedal to hit dirt.

Speaking of rides, my Atalaya ride has scared away folks and not many signing up. Join me if you like chunk and speed and don't mind climbing to get it.

The clinic with Macky on Sunday should be great too. I put that one together and will be doing it myself. Rode w him up Pacheco and Winsor to the ski lot and did REM. He is a ripper. Sign up!
