Pint Night Ride, The Ride

Pint Night Ride - 2024

Pint Night Ride returns to the Cedar Valley on May 2nd!

Join us every 1st and 3rd Thursday for a 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 online and check-in at Bike Tech. The first beverage will be on SingleSpeed & Bike Tech's tab!
