Bicycle tourism benefits local businesses, and for Bikes and Beer week we're featuring bike friendly breweries in Montana and Oregon. The Bitterroot Valley in Montana is becoming a hot spot for brewery bicycle tourism with 10 local breweries, a 50-mile separated bike path along the stunning Bitterroot Mountains, two cross-country bicycle routes, and Adventure Cycling headquarters.
During the Build it. Bike it. Be a Part of it. campaign we're highlighting ways that cycle tourism generated by the growing U.S. Bicycle Route System positively impacts local economies. This week we’re celebrating Bike and Beer Week — everyone who donates will be entered to win a Bike Flights Brauler growler and a Growler Cage for their bicycle!
