Motor City Brew Tours will be hosting the 5th Annual Cruisin’ for the Trails – Spring Charity Bike Ride to support the Friends of the Paint Creek Trail on Saturday May 6, 2017. Enjoy a bike ride along the Clinton River Trail and Paint Creek Trail with a special New Belgium Brewing Themed SAG stop (Beer and Donuts) at the Paint Creek Cider Mill. After the ride, there will be a New Belgium Brewing tap event and party with entertainment in the parking lot of Clubhouse BFD in Rochester Hills. As part of the event, there will be plenty of giveaways and a charity raffle to win a 2017 New Belgium Fat Tire Bike, made locally by Detroit Bikes. The first 500 paid adults receive Bike Centric SWAG, two New Belgium beers, and two fresh donuts at the cider mill. Net proceeds from the bike ride and raffle will support the Friends of the Paint Creek Trail for trail improvements.

Tickets will be available the day of the event for $30 (cash only). “Our annual event celebrates the incredible cycling opportunities in the area, and we appreciate the non-profit groups who strive to provide a beautiful, natural place for cyclists and pedestrians to enjoy. This is one way we can show our support for all that they do. We have great support from the local business community with New Belgium Brewing, Clubhouse BFD, Main Street Bicycles, and the Paint Creek Cider Mill joining in to make this a fun event for everyone,” said Steve Johnson, President of Motor City Brew Tours. The Friends of the Paint Creek Trail is a non-profit 501(c)(3) whose mission is to support the use, maintenance, and improvement of the Paint Creek Trail. “We are so pleased to again have the support of Steve Johnson and the Motor City Brew Tours. We have enthusiastic members who love the Paint Creek Trail. With the support of the community and our fundraising events, we’ve been able to purchase and install trail amenities, and donate to the Bike Lids for Kids program which provides helmets for area children,” said Jim VanDoorn, President of the Friends of the Paint Creek Trail.
