Road riding, bike shop talk, craft beer all in one day? Join BikesnBrews for the 2017 version of this event.

This will be a no-drop ride for all abilities. Faster riders will ride ahead with the slower riders following behind. Once we reach Cochrane via Hwy 1A, there will have at least 3 interesting stops to enjoy:

We'll stop in at the new Krang Spirits for a short tour and tasting.

Next we will talk shop with Graham Pye at Bike Bros and sample some craft coffee from the Crowsnest Coffee Company.

Then off to the new Half Hitch Brewery and Restaurant for a refuelling stop.

Following that, we may stop for Ice Cream

Then the groups will join up for climb and ride back home. Non riders are welcome to join us by driving the route instead of riding.

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. Non-COC members may be joining us as well.
