Sunday, August 28th - 1:00 pm
Join The Lands Council for a fun-filled afternoon of biking,
awareness, music, and a couple cold ones on a 7.5-mile bike ride along the Spokane River, through downtown, into historic Brown’s Addition and beyond! This leisurely ride will visit three important areas of interest: a tree planting site, examples of their restoration work, and even a beaver habitat!
Don’t worry - this ride is as much about fun as it is learning! They'll make a few stops along the way to rest and enjoy a cold beverage before hitting the road again! All funds raised from Brews Cruise 2011 will directly support TLC’s efforts to protect and preserve the Inland Northwest’s forests, water, and wildlife! This means registration fees and donations are tax deductible!
11:45- 12:45 p.m. Please arrive early enough to complete registration before the ride begins at 1:00 p.m.
1003 E. Trent Ave - Riverwalk Building. Abundant parking. Also home to Northern Lights Brewery, one of the event's sponsors!
As a group, we'll leisurely ride through central Spokane. The first stop will be the campus of Gonzaga University- an example of TLC’s environmental education programs, which rely on hands-on activities such as tree plantings. Then head to the historic Flour Mill where participants will learn about the workings and benefits of a beaver dam through a real-life example! Next stop is a beautiful bluff overlooking Hangman Creek, home of countless hours of TLC restoration work. Throughout the ride, you'll make several stops at local pubs, for refreshments, rest, and of course a little fun! Then, everyone will head back to the starting point (Northern Light’s Brewery) to take a breather, grab some food, and get ready for an after-ride celebration including a 3-band benefit concert!
Brews Cruise participants must be at least 21 years of age. Due to Spokane County’s requirement that all bicyclists wear helmets, please bring all proper safety gear, including a helmet.
Pre-register for the Brews Cruise at brewscruise2011.eventbrite.com/online.
Registration is $20. (Those looking to attend only the concert may purchase tickets for $10/each.)
See you there!
