Bring your own bicycle or borrow a FREE bicycle from Charlotte JoyRides and join our Program Coordinator for our regular Bike-n-Brew ride. We will meet at Blue Blaze Brewing and travel along the Irwin Creek and Stewart Creek Greenways to the Panther’s Stadium and Ray’s Splash Planet before returning to Blue Blaze Brewing. Along the way, we will stop and learn about the public benefits of Greenways in our region, the ecological importance of the Irwin and Stewart Creeks, and the history of the surrounding neighborhoods. At the end of the ride, all participants 21+ are invited to join the Program Coordinator in enjoying a Carolina Thread Trail Pale Ale or another drink of your choice from Blue Blaze Brewing.
