FGBC: For FGBC, “beer travel” is getting to and from beer on our bikes. Our motto is: Ride Fixed. Drink Craft.
FGBC: FGBC is a craft beer drinking group of urban cyclists. We organize group rides to North Orange County craft breweries, tap houses and pubs.Rides range anywhere from 10 to 30 miles round trip, all riders are welcomed to rendezvous at our meeting spot or can join the ride anywhere on our route.
TRP: How many participants do you get on average for each 2pint2sday?
FGBC: It really depends. Since we call it The Inconvenient Ride – seeing as its on a Tuesday and starting at 7pm – it can be anywhere from 2 to 20 riders.
TRP: Why do cycling and local beer go so well together?
FGBC: It seems like cycling and beer have been a tradition since the inception of the bicycle. It’s nothing new, we simply decided to take it a bit further by highlighting craft beer and fixed gear culture since they seem to come from the same sub-culture and bring together the same types of people. Enthusiasts.
FGBC: We love seeing that the craft beer explosion is still in its early stages in North OC. We’ve seen breweries open, re-locate, expand and collaborate with one another. If the trend continues, we hope to be part of the plan to make North OC the best beer destination Southern California.
