October 6


Bike & Brew with REI
Cochran Shoals & Sweetwater Brewing Co.

Bikes and Beer! What better way to spend a day? Join the Georgia Conservancy and REI's Outdoor School's Mountain Biking Instructors for a morning of trail riding at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area's Cochran Shoals Unit followed by a trip to SweetWater Brewing Company.

At 8 AM, we'll meet at SweetWater Brewing Company and hop in the REI van and shuttle to Cochran Shoals for a dynamic and scenic trail ride accompanied by expert guidance and instruction on REI’s high quality full-suspension Ghost mountain bikes. REI will provide helmets, bikes, an overview of equipment, bike fit and selection, and instruction. After working up a thirst on the trails, relax on the van ride back to SweetWater Brewery. Upon arrival, you will enjoy a tour of SweetWater Brewery with tastings of some of their flavorful brews. A commemorative SweetWater pint class will be included!

In 2018, we are excited to deepen our partnership with our friends at REI by hosting the REI Trips Series. We will be joined by REI Outdoor School Instructors who will bring their world-class expertise in a variety of outdoor activities and share their knowledge with participants. We are thrilled to offer new outdoor experiences such as mountain biking, stand-up paddle boarding, yoga, and backcountry navigation. Join us on this year with REI at Bike and Brew, Paddlefest, and at our Women’s Campout at Unicoi.
