Road riding, bike shop talk, craft coffee tasting + other surprises all in one day? Join BikesnBrews for this exclusive COC event.

Riders will leave in 2 groups with two ride options: A shorter, slower paced ride or a longer, faster paced ride. Goal will be to split into 2 groups of 10 riders each. Once we reach Cochrane, there will be 2 interesting stops to enjoy:

Talk shop with Graham Pye at Bike Bros and sample some craft coffee courtesy of the Crowsnest Coffee Company.

Head over to the infamous Cafe Roubaix to meet Dan, drool over the carbon inventory he carries.

But wait, we have added an optional 3rd stop at the Half Hitch Brewery currently under constuction.

Then the groups will join up for climb and ride back home.

Ride: watch for country roads w/ narrow shoulders and a long continuous ~2km climb leaving Cochrane. Exact routes to be determined based on weather, wind and group size but 2 options will be available. I will need a volunteer ride leader for each group.

Only 1 guest per member and $2 will collected for the COC from all guests and non-paid members. Let's support the COC by buying a $25 membership now to enjoy other BikesnBrews rides planned.
