Being a bike-centric brewery we thought we’d put together a day that celebrates the joy of cycling. On the 10th of July we’re going to invite a few people from the bike world to join us in the Tap Room.
A big part of the day is based around the community and family; with this in mind Street Bikes will host a stall showing off there great range of bikes for all abilities. Street Bikes are a local community based project, they operate as a non-profit organisation and rely on donations. Over the last 6 years they’ve donated over 6,000 bikes across Kirklees. During the event people can buy reconditioned bikes direct from them and learn about all the mixed ability rides they organise across Kirklees.
Got a problem with your bike? Gears not running smoothly? Well Albion Cycling will be running a bike doctor to help out with any tricky mechanical issues you may have. They’ll be asking for donations to Street Bikes in return for their mechanical help.
Roller Racing (12 – 2pm / 3 – 4pm (Kid session) / 5 – 7pm)
If you’ve never tried fixed roller racing, then we can first hand say you’ve got to try it. Battle it out with a friend on a fix bike over 500 meters. We know that doesn’t sound hard but believe us when bragging rights with your mates are on the line it can push you over the edge. Kids can take part too. Hosted by Sowerby Brothers.
We’re excited to announce Rich and Tom a father and son from the Peak District will be here to show their inspiring video and hold a Q&A about their adventures on a tandem bike.
Shredder Launch (2pm)
More info on the day
Dave and Sim, two bike riding storytellers with a passion for adventures, will be showing a premiere of their latest story and film.
/ Auction (5.30pm) and Raffle (6pm)
No day is complete without a raffle, all the proceeds will be going Street Bikes and we have a bumper pack of prizes from our supporters.
/ Food & Drinks (12pm – 7pm)
Diamond Dogs, Honest Crust and Dim Sum Sue will be keeping you well fed and Blawd will be on hand to serve you tasty treats and cakes. Dark Woods filtered coffee will also be available to keep you refreshed.
We’ll be launching a new canned beer, but we can’t say too much about that.
If you like bikes, beer, food and a little bit of friendly competition then hopefully you’ll like our Bike Day. We hope to raise a fair amount of money that we will also be donating to Street Bikes.
