September Bike & Brew

When and Where

We’ll meet at 11:00 a.m. at Surly Brewing Co. located at 520 Malcolm Ave SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414 in outdoor beer garden tent. After our bike ride to the Stone Arch Bridge, we’ll return to Surly, maybe around 2 ish?

The Bike Ride

No bike? No problem! Rent one from Nice Ride. If you need assistance in renting the bike, let us know when you sign up.
We’ll start and end at Surly Brewing Company. Come at 11:00 a.m. to mingle. At 11:30 we’ll have a discussion about why climate change is bad for beer—and many other things we love. But we won’t end on a sad note. We’ll talk about all the solutions out there and how we need to work together to make them happen. Next, we’ll enjoy a family-friendly 4-mile bike ride to the Stone Arch Bridge and North Loop Playground area. When we feel like heading back to Surly, we will. You’re free to bike on your own or stay with the group. See the planned route.
