This is blatant plagiarism of @gugie excellent thread but with a twist. This doesn't have to be about beer although that is a favorite of the C&V crowd, there is wine and cider and Coffeeneuring season is almost upon us. I have a Sunday tradition of riding a short distance on Sunday to the weekly Farmers market and then spending time in the local pub. The Beer Junction. Pictures or it didn't happen...

Ha, coffeeneuring, I love it. 👍😁 I'm somewhere around 27 years without that demon alcohol, so it's mostly pop for me. And some coffee here & there. This is an Italian Trattoria dark roast, with only a sip missing.

I'm around 3/4 of the way across Golden Valley again here, and the bike is my new-to-me '88 Bianchi Forte. I know, my saddle is peeling, lol, but it's still a good saddle. 😁😉

EDIT: I posted before I read the rules, so this is NOT a submission. I'm not sure I can adhere to Rule #11 . 🤔😉

Enjoying hot coco (supplied by my wonderful wife) after completing a 10-mile Turkey Day time trial. Temp was 30 degrees.

These events are always fun, and you don't need to train for them because there is no need for speed and they have route that can be suitable for the older, and not so serious rider, as long as that rider has at least a few gears for the possible small hills that may or may not be on the ride course route. Physically fit riders, can easily handle the route on a single speed heavy vintage cruiser, but if that seems like too much effort, just ride something that you'll enjoy riding. These events generally have a longer route that the "serious cyclists" can scoot out with the other spandex lances imagining they are riding in a group battling for the yellow jersey in July in France.

@Andy_K and I should take more pix. Mosts rides end up with rehydration.

But you did ask for a pic. I'm claiming this is the record number of BFer's to sit and imbibe at one setting.

A late night Dortmunder lager at the Herkimer brew pub in Minneapolis with my PX10 in the background. I hope that the blurred bike image is from the camera and not my vision. I think it is.

Not to worry. That's just an excellent example of the skillful use of shallow depth-of-field from a large aperture to blur the background and make it less distracting to the main subject. We're perhaps just not used to the bike not being the main subject, is all. This is, for me, more difficult to do than the Photography 101 books make it seem, so well done!

Now this thread has potential! A buddy of mine and I jump on our hybrids every month or so and make the 15 trek up to Denton, TX on a bike path that parallels the commuter rail for breakfast tacos and cerveza. 30 miles round trip. Not C&V, but these types of rides are tailor made for a flat bar hybrid.

This was taken while enjoying an iced latte from the farmers market. The handlebar bag on the Trek makes little shopping trips down there real easy.

May have followed up my latte with a beer.

Thanks, it was tricky getting the mountains AND the coffee in the same frame. 😉 BTW, if you went in a straight line from where I was sitting (not down the road), you'd run into Spirit Mountain (on the other side of these ones, in Nevada). I've been feeling a need to go there, since I heard about it. 🤔

I thought I saw a shot pre Erocia from a few years ago of lots of C&V'ers sitting around imbibing but I guess until someone posts a shot to support that then @gugie the record is yours!

I've got a few representative samples.

From the Uptown Market, some taps.


At the Cruise In Country Diner, I think this was the Rusty Truck.


Mid-ride drinks at the South Store Cafe. Everyone else probably had coffee, the hot chocolate beneath a mountain of whipped cream was mine.


Then there's this from the end of the original Neal Lerner Invitational. Some beverages were consumed there, but none of them were the Bombay IPA despite nearly everyone in the group trying to order it, because they were out that day.


I'm not sure I should speculate about what sort of elixir this man is formulating.

No pics, but I normally ride home to my favorite brewery...the one with four taps in the basement.

Unfortunately, the Alewife has been incredibly lazy as of late, so all the beer on tap is commercial craft stuff.

Ohhhhh....I should brew for my husband's birthday tomorrow.

Leaving beer alone...for now

Time and again, I've spent time in the days leading up to rides with a beer in my hand. It's how its done.

However, the days of closing down a local bar, then riding, for example, the Dairyland Dare, are over. Let's just say it hurts. I tend to cramp, a lot.

Slowing down seemed to help, or so I thought. Enter 2019's riding "season:"
A 700-mile month in May, capped by a relatively moderate Thunder Ridge...hmm, only one beer the night before, and not a lager, so left half full on the table.

June brought 1071 miles and no time to drink, just ride.

July was busy, and I avoided beer in the days prior to a 96-degree Ride Across Indiana, 170 miles. No doubt, it helped.

August brought the 225-mile Ride Across Wisconsin, and it being Wisconsin, beer was consumed the day before, with @hodgykins. Cramps showed up well before 100 miles, were unrelenting by 150, and had me outta there at 183.

So, I've avoided beer since, with 4 centuries and a 3-day riding stint in Wisconsin, 5 weeks in a row. No beer, no cramps.

Bring on the wine.

Yes, the truth of the matter is that alcohol isn't really very good for you, ...commerce, habit, and wishful thinking notwithstanding.

It is entirely possible you can no longer can handle the gluten in the beer. Experiments are a must (Alt Brew) . Sorry Robby, you know me, ride bikes, drink beer...awesome.

An epidemiologist from Mars was dispatched to Earth to study Earthling behaviour and learn about Earthling customs. He attended a cocktail party (think 1960s Mad Men) which, himself being only a few millimetres tall, he was able to observe from a corner without drawing attention to himself. He observed great quantities of various coloured liquids being poured into glasses, some mixed in place, others shaken up in metal vessels before being poured. No matter what colour of liquid the participants drank or the nature of preparation, they all got progressively more relaxed and friendly as the evening wore on, then loquacious and finally loud and somewhat obnoxious and sexually demonstrative. The epidemiologist wrote all this down and after careful analysis reported his findings to his university on Mars:

Earthling behaviour is altered on these occasions by a strange substance contained in their drinks. It's called....

Ice.
