I'm a "single issue voter". If I ride a bike - I ride a bike. If I drink beer - I buy it and drink it after the ride at home or at the pool. Besides, according to the DMV chart, for my body weight I'll get a DUI if I have more than 2 beers. Who is crazy enough to do a brewery ride for just 2 beers?

Rode down to Oceanside yesterday, had two beers with lunch and took the train back.

Does that count as a brewery ride?

But yeah, 3 and you have to start thinking about not driving home from the train station.

I guess I’m the only alchy rider here. I also do dry rides, lol. I just like the idea of hitting breweries while on the bike. No DUIs.

You could get well-hammered in the I.E.-- Ritual, Escape, Hangar 24, and Brew Rebellion are all contained within easily a (pretty much flat) 15 mile loop, and it's only that far because Brew Rebellion is out on the old AFB in San Bernardino.

You can ride loops around the vacant parking lots at the non-operational airport until you sober up.

negative. CA does recognize a bicycle as a motor vehicle, therefore no DUI. But you can get arrested for drunk in public or CUI. Definitely want to avoid that but not same as DUI

In the majority of bicycle accidents the rider had been drinking.

That is patently false.

"Human error is the main contributory factor involving cyclist collisions. Driver/rider error was the most frequently reported reason for the incident involving 71% of all reported accidents in 2016. Accidents involving child cyclists are often the result of the child playing, doing tricks, riding too fast or losing control. For teenage and adult cyclists, accidents are more likely to involve collisions with motor vehicles, but about 16% of fatal or serious cyclist accidents reported to the police do not involve a collision with another vehicle, but are caused by the rider losing control of their bicycle.

In collisions involving a bicycle and another vehicle, the most common key contributory factor recorded by the police is ‘failed to look properly’ by either the driver or rider, especially at junctions. ‘Failed to look properly’ was attributed to the car driver in 57% of serious collisions and to the cyclist in 43% of serious collisions at junctions . Other common contributory factors attributed to drivers are ‘poor turn/manoeuvre’ (in 17% of serious accidents involving a cyclist) and ‘careless, reckless, in a hurry (17%). Cyclists are more likely to suffer serious injuries when a driver is judged to be ‘impaired by alcohol’, exceeding the speed limit’ or ‘travelling too fast for the conditions’."

Some 21 percent of autopsies for New York City bicyclists who died within three hours of their accidents detected alcohol in the body, according to a Department of Health and Mental Hygiene study that examined fatal bicycling accidents in New York City from 1996 to 2005.





Probably a lot of bicycle accidents where the rider didn't die within 3 hours...

Seeing as you brought up good old NYC, do you know how many cyclists died outside of collisions with a cars in 2016? One. In the entire year.

Do you know how many cyclists were killed by cars in that same year? Twenty four. So even if we were to follow your "majority" which plummeted to "21%, in one city, over a 9 year period," that would mean 5 cyclists in NYC died with alcohol in their systems-- but that may or may not even be involved in their cause of death. Cars are the leading cause of cycling fatalities. By a significant margin.

This thread just took a wrong turn, lol. Just wanted to see what other riders brewery tour. Just cuz I’m stopping at breweries doesn’t mean I’m riding drunk. Plus I’d rather someone ride a bike under the influence then drive a car.

Craft beer is great, I enjoy a pint of IPA after a ride. Cycling is dangerous... just my thought and I'm not expert but, my guess is, pedaling after drinking presents a lot less danger to others than driving after drinking but you can sure hurt yourself. The BAC tables help folks estimate when driving is ill advised according to the law (e.g., .08 in California) but, I think a cyclist risks injury at much lower levels than legal levels of DWI, e.g., alcohol involved in 63% of bicycle accidents among Finnish cyclists age 15-64 not involving collision with a car.


...Li and associates also found that bicyclists who died at the scene were four times as likely as those who died at hospitals to be legally intoxicated (35% vs. 9%, p < .02). Given a serious bicycling injury, intoxication was associated with significantly increased likelihood of fatality...

… a Finnish case-control study that estimated the relative risk of and alcohol-related bicycle crash (Olkkonen, 1993). The study involved 200 bicycle victims who were injured fatally in road traffic accidents during the years 1982-1988, and 700 cyclists who were used as unmatched controls for these cases. The study found that alcohol was involved in 25% of the collision accidents and in 63% of the single accidents involving cyclists aged 15 to 64 years and whose blood alcohol was measured....

My problem with doing a brewery ride is that once I planted my @$$ in the first barstool I'd probably not make it to the next stop.
