(River City Red) Beer and Bicycle (Alliance of WA)

Glen's disc'd CX bike.
This picture has nothing to do with this post.
Except that it's bike related.

This Friday (Feb 22), Barb, former Spokanite and now Seattlite and ED of BAW, is coming back to host a bike hang.

Of course no bike hang can happen without beer, so Barb is doing it right and has convinced Gage and Co. at River City Red Brewing to provide some beer for the event. It's not as if Gage needs convincing. Every time I've pitched a bikey event to Gage, he's supported it somehow. And I'm one of many pitchers. Gage is a guy that walks the walk... he pedals the pedals ... uh ...he's consistently putting his beer where his mouth is... BAM!

Anyway, here are the facts from the Facebook event:

We're getting together in the Community Building lobby for some bike love!
RSVP here or to info@bicyclealliance.org, please, so we can have a head count for beverages & light snacks.

- Beer courtesy of River City Red
- Raffle with prizes donated by Two Wheel Transit, Wheel Sport East, North Division Bike Shop, Pedals2People, Mountain Gear, Fitness Fanatics, and Bicycle Alliance of WA (maybe more to come!)
- Chance to hang out, talk bikes, and dream of spring
- Donations appreciated to benefit Spokane Bikes/Bike to Work Week and the Bicycle Alliance of Washington

Dear John - Your kindness is appreciated, even if not warranted. As a company, we are happy to be supporting one of our two great loves - cycling.

The other one is beer. You knew that, right?

Thanks, John and Gage--I can already feel the bike love!

One more awesome angle on the event that we lined up earlier this week: We'll be rolling out the "Gear Grinder Blend" from Roast House Coffee, sales of which will benefit the Bicycle Alliance.

Deb will be at the event pouring (for those who want to balance the River City Red with a little caffeine) and we'll have bags available.

Two special deals:

For $15 you walk away with a bag of great coffee that's organic, better than fair trade, in bags with recycled content, from a local roaster

For $25 you get all that AND a membership in the Bicycle Alliance of Washington so you can stand up and be counted as someone who supports bicycling statewide.

We'll have a Square app and be taking plastic on the spot to make it easy.

Looking forward to seeing my Spokane bike buddies!
