Show Me Bike-related Drinking Glasses and Mugs

For all the coffee, beer, and wine drinking we do and all the event/race and bar souvenirs we've accumulated, I'm surprised I didn't find a thread showing off this stuff.
So I'm starting one. Show me your cycling-related, off-the-bike drinking vessels (i.e. no water bottles) that you have from events, races, bars, and coffee houses you've entered, or organizations of which you're a member.
I suppose if you drink your beer from a bottle and you have your first Fat Tire dead soldier, I guess that's OK.
Or if you have a huge loving cup trophy from your BCOTP (Baddest Cyclist on the Planet) days, that's cool too especially if you still drink from it.
Of course, C & V drinking vessels (greater than 25 years old) are worth extra kudos.

League of American Bicyclists (2013)




Horsey Hundred (Georgetown, KY USA) 2-day ride in the beautiful rolling countryside near Lexington




Tree Fort Bikes (~2012) A favorite LBS (Ypsilanti, MI) that also has a strong on-line presence




Ironman USA Lake Placid (1999) and Ironman Wisconsin (2002) - inaugural years




OK, your turn. Show me something.

Absolutely not. I forgot to include manufacturers. You're in.

Forgot to look at the coffee mugs before posting.
Memento from riding and running on the Mickelson Trail, a 109 mile long rails-to-trails path in South Dakota.
Beautiful area and lots of history along the trail.

That's Patient Zero for my 650b conversion project, @jyl's Bianchi Specialissima. He wanted dual bug-eyed headlights integrated into the rack.

These two mugs were handmade by my lovely niece Erin. We got them as gifts when we toured the Petits Train Du Nord in Quebec with her parents last year.

Patent date on it is FEB.23.97. I bought it in the '80s so it is presumably patented in 1897 but could have been produced at any time since. Copper color is reflection; it's dulled/shiny silver or something. It's my second one, found after I gave the first one to a friend.

Side note: never seen a patent date with month/day/year.

I shared my grief and apologies with said coworker, and a couple of days later I received a package in the mail. She'd "fixed" it.

Perhaps you can have @non-fixie ask the co-worker if she can knit a thin wool cozy in the same colors/pattern for your mug.
