The Here to Beer Community Bike Ride is a 24-mile roundtrip fundraiser bike ride open to all kinds of riders and all kinds of bikes – regular and e-bikes alike! 

Starting at 9:00am before the ride, gather at Haymarket Plaza just outside the Pablo Center in Downtown Eau Claire to check-in and get your beer wristbands. During this time you can also purchase coffee and snack waffles from the Shift Cyclery & Coffee Bar tent! 

At 10:00am the mass group will depart to ride 12 miles at a casual pace up the Old Abe State Trail – the fully paved multi-use trail connecting Eau Claire to Chippewa Falls. There we’ll stop at the famous Leinie Lodge where all participants get an included 4-beer sample flight (you pick the brews!). You could even do a little Leinie-based shopping. 

After that, we head back down the trail to Eau Claire where we hit up the indoor/outdoor space of the Brewing Projekt along the river for another full pint of a beer of your choosing. Hang out here as long as you’d like, where a food truck will be on-site as well for those who worked up an appetite. 

That’s it! An easy, fun community day on bikes with friends and family. And it all raises money for CORBA - the volunteer- and member-based organization dedicated to building, improving, and maintaining multi-use trails and promoting activities and events on the trails in Wisconsin’s Chippewa Valley, including mountain biking, trail running, snowshoeing, hiking, and more. Consider becoming a member!


9:00am-9:55am   Check-in/Registration. All riders must come to Check-In/Registration to get their wristbands before the ride to participate in the beer sampling.

11:00am-12:15pm: Leinie Lodge stop with Beer

12:15pm: Depart Leinie Lodge

After our stop at the Brewing Projekt, you can make your way back the half mile to Haymarket Plaza or wherever you started your ride from. The beer sample tickets issued from your wristband will only be honored during the time ranges shown above. The stretch of Old Abe Trail this event takes place on does not require a state trail pass.
