This week we will be joined by bicycling friends from the bicycling-centric East End Brewing Co. Owner/Founding Brewer Scott Smith will be bringing some six packs to raffle off before the ride. And to celebrate this occasion properly, Elk Creek will be presenting their FIRST EVER guest tap: East End’s
For The Culture 2.0
An Imperial Brut IPA collaboration with Black Brew Culture for Fresh Fest 2019. For this light-bodied, champagne-like, hop forward style of beer, they went Imperial this time by bumping up the Pilsner Malt and upping the late addition hops. They used three varieties of hops Nelson Sauvin, Hallertau Blanc, and Idaho Seven, which just burst tropical fruit and white wine-like notes.
Don’t miss this ride! We are gong to showcase the beauty of the Valley and Ride the Apple Butter Loop in the opposite direction that we road it a few weeks ago. The route will be marked in YELLOW arrows. The weather looks good for tomorrow night, let’s have a good showing!
UPDATE TO ROUTE!
Before I show you the route this week I want to take a minute to share something with the club. I get scared at the start of every weekly PV Pedals + Pints club ride. Yes, scared because I fear someone is going to get hurt…or worse.
This week we are riding one of our favorite routes, but for a different reason. Thursday we are “Pedaling for a Purpose” – with the purpose being the Dan Stearns Foundation. Please read the article to learn about how much more there was to Dan than just one of our weekly riders.
We’re riding to Madisonburg this week in Brush Valley. The route is rightfully named, the Brush Valley Reverse. This route takes us through the Millheim Narrows. I’ll once again try and arrange with Ed from the Millheim Fire Company to follow us through the Narrows for a enjoyable start to the ride. We are on our own for the return ride. Feel free to alter the route if riding in the Narrows makes you uncomfortable.
