http://www.bigredpedaltours.com/pubs-we-visit The Big Red Pedicycle is a 15-passenger bike. This open air "tour bus" has seats lining both sides and a back bench for riders to sit on. Only instead of just sitting there, you pedal! Riders work together to casually pedal the Big Red Pedicycle around Philly and stop at historic sites during the day and popular pubs at night. It is the perfect vehicle for historic tours, team building, school trips, pub crawls, bachelor/bachelorette parties, company outings, birthday parties, charity events and so much more.
Posting this to gauge interest and as a placeholder so we can discuss further as we get closer - thanks to Kristin for the suggestion! In 2016, this race is right before our NJ race, however I need a spring marathon for 2017!
Coming in 2016, the Running in the Suburbs / Crafty Beer Runners "Trails and Ales" Series! This event will actually be a series of separate posted events. The plan is to run a trail close to a brewery, then visit that brewery, post run, for delicious refreshments. Throughout the year, different events in the series will be posted. Some will be relatively close, others a short day trip. A sneak preview of some of the trails/breweries are below. Every couple of weeks, we will add an event to the series. Suggestions for additional trails/breweries are always welcome. Two events, already posted, will kick off the series. The Run the Perkiomen Trail and drink at Appalachian Brewing as well as the Run the SRT & drink at Stable 12 events will begin the "Trails and Ales" series. Some other upcoming trails/breweries are: Run the East Branch of the Perkiomen Trail and drinks at Free Will Brewing Company Run the Delaware Canal Towpath (D&L Trail) and drinks at Neshaminy Creek Brewing Run the Wisahickon/Green Ribbon Trail and drinks at Prism Brewing Run the Lehigh Canal Towpath (D&L Trail) and drink at Weyerbacher Brewing and more to come! Keep an eye out for each individual event in the series to be posted. RSVP to this event to follow along or suggest ideas.
They opened a new site just over the bridge from Norristown and steps from the N-town section of the SRT, which snakes north about 5 or 6 miles up to Valley Forge Park. There's free parking on weekends in the SEPTA lot off the trail; train, bus and high-speed line stop there. Might make a weekend site to run and then stop in for a bite and brew for those inclined. It has a big parking lot, accessible to 202.
