BikeLab Brewery Ride

Do you like joy? Do you like happiness? Do you like camaraderie and bonhomie? If so, you should come join the Caltech BikeLab for our first* probably-once-a-term ride to a local brewery here in Los Angeles on Sunday the 5th of June. Come join us for a pleasant ride downtown, food, and drinks. This time we're going to Angel City Brewing in Downtown ( We'll even get to tour the brewery as well.

Ride to the brewery will be 12 miles (mostly downhill) at an easy pace. I'll be available at the shop at 1:30 PM for any last minute repairs, and we ride at 2-2:15. The brewery is right by the Little Tokyo metro stop so it will be easy to get back home to Caltech after a few beers.

We'll have the necessary equipment to make repairs on the ride down, but if you could bring a spare tube for your bike that will make all our lives easier should you get a flat. Try and make sure your bike is in good, working order before the ride. Bring your ID and some cash for the brewery--I'll try and get food subsidized, but you'll have to pay for your own drinks. Most importantly, bring your sense of fun.

Please RSVP at bikeshop AT caltech DOT edu if you plan on coming.

*Maybe some Caltech cyclists did this years ago. If so, their names and legends have been lost in the mists of time.
