A Dark and Stormy Night For a Bike Ride

Beer Ranger Grant invited me to another gathering of similarly inclined cyclists on Tuesday night at Altitudes Bar and Grill (2 Beaver Street).  The Planner Guy had his own bike plans apart from me on Lake Mary Road, training for his Louisville Ironman on August 26.  The weather this week has not been ideal for outdoor adventures but monsoon rains cannot overcome the anticipation of a Sunshine Wheat and a group bike ride. 

I made a souvenir of the Clips of Faith Beer and Film Tour coaster.  The tour is coming through Flagstaff mid-August.  It will be an outdoor viewing of films about bikes and beer and include beer tasting.  An excellent end of summer diversion.

Friend and committed bike and beer fan David joined us on his vintage cruiser, covered artfully in rust and outfitted with handlebar that could also double as empaling devises.

Our friend Will had son Nixon in tow on the rear of his bike.

This couple managed the threat of rain on a tandem, their combined pedaling allowed them top speed on the hilly route through NAU that we took.

Due to impending rain our ride was a short one, only 30 minutes and we arrived back at Altitudes just in time to miss heavy rains, thunder and lighting, which have remained with us all week.  Our group spent the next hour of so on the covered porch enjoying beer and appetizers, and conversed about the recent flooding, biking during lightening, and crude South Park clips that shouldn't be funny but really, really are.

Did you notice if there was a sticker on those handlebars that stated "Serious injury or death could result from the use of this equiptment. Rider use at your own risk"? I can already hear my mother (well, my wife) saying "Get away from that thing. You're gonna poke your eye out."

Oh, Sinbad's Buddy, you are so funny! My mother would definitely lecture me and I know that I would lecture my husband on the dangers of those handlebars!

You mentioned South Park, so I guess I can ask if the brewery's location is really, truly on South Beaver.

She Rides a Bike said...

Yes, Chick, truly S. Beaver.

I really need to go on an adult beverage ride someday... ice cream rides are great, but beer sounds a bit better!
