Craft brewing has exploded over the last ten years in Vancouver, and East Vancouver has become a hot spot for these small, independent breweries, each offering a variety of options for beer lovers. This bicycle based brewery tour features some of our favourite stops, along with some places to grab coffee or food to fuel your journey. All tasting rooms allow children accompanied by an adult, and many have worked out deal with local food trucks, who will park outside and whose food can be brought inside.

This ride will take you through Chicago's North-side and place you right out on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Heading South you will have views the city's looming skyline, rest in it's shadows at Oak Street Beach and cruise back North through Lincoln Park where there are plenty of worthy detours along the way.
This is a route I take regularly in the summer with my son in tow. We get quality father-son time, with the wind in our hair, we see the city and draw inspiration and ideas.
Chicago's motto is "Urbs in Horto" and this ride will take you by a variety of parks and public spaces used for a variety of purposes. Each space is great for people watching and most feature great juxtaposition of city and green space. You'll see playgrounds and gardens, community dog parks, historic buildings, our new skate park, and awesome skyline views. Stop anywhere along the way to explore, play, or observe, or complete the route in just about one hour.
The Boston Brewing Company (Sam Adams) put Boston on the beer map in the late 1980s, and regional powerhouse Long Trail followed not long after. Lesser known Cambridge Brewing Company also started in the late 1980s, and went on to influence countless local startups such as Vermont darlings Hill Farmstead. And while the Boston beer scene largely languished during the the late 90s and 2000s, it has once again awoken and begun to flourish, with vibrant and daring beers coming from downtown and the immediate north.
