The North Texas Bicycle Brewery Tour presents the Dallas Winter Tour: 2018. Three (or Four) Breweries*: Texas Ale Project, Four Corners, Community Beer Co. and Pegasus.
Starting at Red Star Bicycles and cycling to each brewery.
New T-shirts are available. Wicking fabric as opposed to cotton. $20 each
More details to be added in future updates to this post.
*Pegasus has such a tiny tap room we need to send small squads over at a time from Community. As we don’t want them to get in trouble with occupancy requirements.
As usual we have a few suggestions and tips and we encourage you to read through them.
Brewery Tour Rules
1. This is a family friendly event, we want everyone to have a great time, so please ride and drink responsibly.
2. Do not drink alcoholic beverages on the roads or trails.
3. Please do not bring your own beer — especially onto a brewery’s property.
4. Breweries do not serve to anyone under 21. Riders of any age are welcome to join us, but do not try to get beer if you are not of age — it will end poorly.
5. Bring cash if you can. Cash speeds up the lines and service. Most beers are $5. T-shirts are $20.
6. Don’t forget to tip your server, many of them only get $2.15 per hour to take care of your beverage needs.
Brewery Tour Tips:
Nutrition: Very Important —
The increased activity and nutrition needs are completely different from sitting in a pub. Everything speeds up. Even through its WINTER, we're still in Texas, so you never know what kind of weather we're going to get.
1. Drink more water than beer. Alcohol causes you to dehydrate so if you are drinking beer you are not even coming close to being hydrated properly. Drink twice the water as you would beer.
2. Eat a large breakfast before you go on your ride.
3. Eat high Carb foods while on your ride. Like bread (poor boys) or potatoes (French fries). It will not sober you up but it will slow the absorption of alcohol into your system. Cliff bars do not work well and caffeine just makes you a wide awake drunk.
4. When you have stopped drinking you have about 30 to 45 minutes before all of the alcohol is in your system fully. That is when the trouble starts and you become impaired beyond control. So get to a safe place quickly after the tour stops. Do not leave your bicycle at any of the breweries.
Legal and reasonability: Know your limit.
1. The Texas penal code addressing D.W.I. is § 49.04 and it specifically says «motor vehicle». Remember if you ride while intoxicated on the streets acting like a car you can get a DWI in the state of Texas. Most likely you will get PI instead.
2. You are an Adult Drink Responsible.
3. Have a bailout plan, some one that can come pick you up.
4. If you ride Drunk on a Bike you may not kill someone but you may kill yourself.
5. Wear a helmet. (see above)
Thank you for getting down to the bottom of this message. We look forward to seeing you all at the event, and we hope you have a wonderful time.
