Do you like Beer?

And “they” say that there is no such thing as a stupid question; well “they” were wrong, weren’t “they”? In particular, do you like any of the fine products that New Belgium Brewing has to offer? I already know you like bikes, otherwise why would you be wasting your time here. Well, have I got something in store for you.


Look what we get to sponsor:




Surly sponsor something involving ridiculous costumes, beer, and bikes? Sounds pretty farfetched, right? Throw in a scavenger hunt and how could we say no? So there you have it. Surly is the official bike sponsor of the New Belgium Brewing Urban Assault Ride. The UAR will be in 10 cities starting in Tucson on 2/26 and ending in Chicago on 8/19. For a complete list click here. Surly will be attending as many of these as we can. This is really a great event and we couldn’t have been more honored when we were asked if we wanted to be involved. The folks who put this on are the real deal and know how to have a good time. If you get a chance you should check this out, it’s well worth the hangover.


We will be giving away 5 team registrations on our Facebook page for each event, so keep an eye out.


Plus; we were told that we would be supplied with a pallet of free beer from New Belgium Brewing. I’ve been hanging out by the dock doors for days now and I am beginning to think that the truck has gotten lost.

Bob is at heart a nice guy, a fact he tries hard to dispel by riding a Harley (and dressing like it), and by hunting deer, turkey, and others of God’s magnificent creatures, which he then eats because that is how you do that. He enforces Surly’s use of social media, which is not as funny as it may sound since many people in this group truly hate the very idea of social media.

2012 Arrowhead 135

We’ve experienced a strange winter here…warm and lacking snow, so it felt odd preparing for another Arrowhead 135 race…a 135-mile ultrasport race that follows the scenic and hilly DNR-controlled Arrowhead snowmobile trail from International Falls, MN to Tower, MN.  Participants can run, ski, or bike the event.  Like most of…
