Bike-riding can be fun, but more often it seems primarily functional -- those two wheels can get you from point A to point B pretty quickly and with nary a carbon footprint. However, Trailnet's Bicrobrews Microbrewery Bicycle Tour definitely will be putting the emphasis on the fun part of pedaling around town. A fifteen-mile tour of several small-but-mightily-tasty breweries in the city, this party-on-wheels offers sips to drink and sips of knowledge about making beer, all for just $5. The ride begins at 11 a.m. (registration starts at 10:30 a.m.) at the superb Urban Chestnut Brewing Company (3229 Washington Avenue); learn more by visiting www.trailnet.org.
