    Sounds cool! Any idea of what the demo bike lineup will look like, or where I could find that information?

    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

    Promo Codes?? For $40 you will get a swag bag with a cool mug and event socks, demo bikes, guided rides, unlimited beer sampling, barbecue, and music.

    No promo codes needed and this will sell out! Get your tickets early.

    Yea it's a great deal. Just figured I'd ask since there's an option for it on the ticket page.

    The Breweries

    Just now realizing what our committee has put together for the Bicycle Brustop Beer Garden. Yowsa! This could be the finest concentration of brewers at any bike party I've been to!

    Fieldwork
    Cellarmaker
    Faction
    Hen House
    Lagunitas
    Iron Springs
    Rugged Coast
    (Winner, best IPA at Fairfax Brewfest 2017)

    Don't miss out folks. This will likely sell out this year.

    Parking is along N San Pedro Rd and then you ride or walk (i'd recommend riding!) down the fire road that leads you right to the meadow and Ales and Trails. The earlier you get there, the closer you'll be able to park to that fire road! There will be signs for where you ride/walk in off the San Pedro Rd. It's less than a mile past the main China Camp entrance.

    Let me know if you need any more directions!

    That was decent. Had every beer on offer, some twice. Rode the powerline/peacock loop, saw a rabbit, was attacked by a young turkey, and saw a lot of other older/grizzled dudes. And a tick. The kids race was rad, too.

    ^^ Turkeys are pretty badass. I'm been chased before. This is a cool documentary about Turkey Boy if you have an hour to burn.

    I made the trek from the 916... didn't have a chance to demo a bike or even ride... but I did cross paths with our very own, fellow mtbr curmudgeon sfgiantsfan!

    The kids race was great! Sponsored by STC???

    Curedgeon?? What did I do? I knew I should have punched you when I had the chance.

    Great Day and nice meeting EmptyBeer. That kids race was great fun as always. That little dude in the superman shirt was a badass, totally out biked though
    I'm sick of all the Irish stereotypes, as soon as I finish this beer I"m punching someone

    ^ Haha! I'm just glad you didn't punch me upon identity discovery! (p.s. I'm mostly Irish) ;-)
