Bicycling and Beer as an alliteration is only by divine intent! The Cruise and Brews series enable randonneurs living in or visiting San Diego to ride and explore a popular San Diego cycling route while starting and finishing at a local brewery to celebrate with friends or to reflect on the experience. 

In addition, the Cruise and Brews series allow local randonneurs to introduce friends who may be interested about starting long distance cycling but are still intimidated by the 200k commitment. The libation at the end reinforces the camaraderie that is the essence of randonneuring.
