Official Surly Masher Pre-Ride
On February 11, it’s the journey AND the destination that matter! Don't just attend the Surly Masher, ride to it with us as part of the OFFICIAL SURLY MASHER PRE-RIDE event.
Hosted by the Joyful Riders Club, The Hub Bike Co-op, and Surly Brewing, this is a social ride at a social pace where all are welcome. Expect a conversational, steady, and safe speed as we get stoked for the Surly Masher and celebrate having our city back to normal after some super sports madness.
Date: Sunday, February 11, 2018
Doors - 10:30 AM
Roll out - 11:00 AM
Coffee: There will be coffee! Bring your own container.
There is plenty of bike parking at Surly Brewing. Parking staples are located outside the brewery for your convenience. Lock your bike up and walk over to join us in Festival Field if you wish to keep your bike secure during Surly Masher. If riding around with a heavy lock isn’t your thing and you want to lean your bike on a snow bank next to you while you kick it in the beer garden, that’s cool too.
What to bring
Bring a water bottle and dress appropriately. Do what you need to feel comfortable for a (roughly) 6-mile ride in the ever-vacillating climate of Minnesota.
Tune that bike!
If your bike needs a little something repaired or looked at, be sure to bring it in to Full Cycle BEFORE THE 11TH, as the shop will not be open for repairs that day! Full Cycle is open the day before Surly Masher (February 10th from 10-5 PM) and they will be happy to give your bike the quick fix it needs at that time.
One more thing
You may find that riding your bike with a bunch of people in the middle of winter is your new favorite thing! If so, the Joyful Riders Club also hosts organized community rides every second Thursday, departing from Surly Brewing at 6 PM.
