Pint Night Ride, The Ride


The Pint Night Ride - 2021 Covid-19 edition

Pint Night Ride returns to the Cedar Valley on June 3rd!

Join us for a socially distanced, leisurely ride to SingleSpeed Brewing's Waterloo location for a bite to eat and a beverage.  Utilizing some of the Cedar Valley's best (and flattest) trails, ride your bike with new friends each ride.  Register/check-in at Bike Tech and the first beverage will be on SingleSpeed & Bike Tech's tab.


Next month, on Thursday, June 3rd, we’ll be kicking off the first PNR of the season.  Why June 3rd you ask?  By the start of June, anyone in Iowa who wants a vaccine will have had all their doses and will be considered fully vaccinated.  We feel that at this time we can restart the ride in a safe manner.


Bike Tech and SingleSpeed Brewing will be following the current guidelines set out by the CDC.

  • Vaccinated - rock out with your face out!

  • Unvaccinated - mask up when receiving token and when not eating or drinking - honor system.

  • Before/After Riding - Please respect CDC distancing guidelines of other riding groups.

  • During the ride - NO MASKS - yeah!!!

We know that getting out and riding with others is something that might be way too soon for some people and not soon enough for others.  Your safety and comfort is our priority so please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.  Let’s have some socially distanced fun responsibly!


IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR 2021:

  • On site registration will be back, but limited, and outside only.  We will have a QR Code, or similar, posted at Bike Tech to speed the process on your own devices.  We highly encourage you, and your group, to register online prior to arriving at Bike Tech.

  • We will hand out beverage tokens outside Bike Tech starting at 5:30pm after verification of a signed e-waiver.  Last token will be handed out at 6:15.  You can begin your ride anytime after receiving your token.


Thanks in advance for your patience over the last year and respecting our policies and procedures.  We’ll be back to ‘normal’ sooner as a result.
