There’s one slight climb, but otherwise the ride is open to all level of bicyclists. Mountain, cyclocross, or “hybrid” bikes are perfect for this ride. Due to debris on the path and the occasional patch of gravel or dirt, road bikes are possible, but not recommended.
The amazing fellas down the street from Bicycle Pro Shop will be out with a pop-up shop tent and basic tools to assist riders with small repairs and on hand during the ride to assist with any mechanical issues.
All participants will need to sign a waiver beforehand. Helmet wearing is mandatory for riders of all ages.

SHE’S BAAAAACK! (Or did she ever leave?) We are celebrating the Long Black Veil, our Black IPA, Saturday October 17th whose roots run deep in Alexandria Folklore.
Long Black Veil was originally introduced in October 2014 to coincide with the anniversary of the death of its namesake. The name of the beer was inspired by Alexandria’s famous mystery of the veiled Female Stranger. In 1816, a young woman who had fallen ill was brought ashore from a ship at Alexandria’s port and her husband never removed the thick veil she wore to conceal her identity. They moved into Room 8 at Gadsby’s Tavern and her husband swore the doctor and nurses to secrecy. After two months, she died in his arms on October 14, and he himself prepared and buried her body in a cemetery at the edge of Old Town. The identity of this veiled “Female Stranger” remains a mystery to this day. (For the full story click HERE)
We’ll also have live music with local artist Wes Tucker from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. & Ada’s Kitchen on Wheels food truck will be there serving up their succulent grub all day. Come hungry!
The Tasting Room is open from Noon-9 p.m. Brewery tours are on the hour from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. Be sure to reserve your spot online.
