From Bike Iowa :
Celebrate New Belgium Brewery's Birthday by Riding your Cruiser 100 miles on some of Iowa's best kept trails while stopping at some super-fun establishments along the trail!
Yeah - You heard us right... We are riding 100 miles on Cruisers.If you own a Cruiser bike, have an adventurous spirit, and wish to spend all day Cruising....then WE WANT YOU to join us on Saturday June 29th for a little 'Follow Your Folly' action!
We hear-by declare that "New Belgium Cruisers will rule the trail this day"
Don't own a Cruiser?No worries... All bikes are welcome to come. This will be a perfect opportunity for those who have never ridden a century (100 miles) by bicycle.
Can it be done?
We think so! We have not seen where this kind of event has been attempted before, so why not be part of the fun? You can only go so fast on the cruisers, so plan to be out ALL DAY. We will start early, so we can finish in time to enjoy our achievements!
There will be plenty of place to get water and food along the way. Check with your Doctor or Psychiatrist before committing.
We hope you can make it all the way, but there will be plenty of chances to get on or off the route along the way too.
Plan AheadBring plenty of water, sunscreen, and you'd better have at least one bike tube and a repair kit. Make sure your steed is in good running order. We'll help out where we can, but consider this an unsupported ride as there are no sag wagons. Plan accordingly.
ParkingPlease do NOT take up Mullets or El Bait Shop's parking lot space since we will be gone the whole day! There is space near Principal Park, or better yet ride down!
New Belgium CelebrationWe are working on different New Belgium beer samplings at each stop, as well as other NB goodness along the way.
