Outside Magazine, New Mexico Brewers Guild, Cycle Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Convention & Visitors Bureau have combined resources to build a new form of outdoor festival aimed at the active lifestyle tourist who is seeking the balance between adventure and sophistication, recreation and relaxation, living healthy and living happy. Outside Bike & Brew Festival, scheduled for May 16-18, 2014, in Santa Fe, is a handcrafted event that blends a variety of rigorous biking activities with beautiful scenery and delicious craft beer in the cultural capital of the Rocky Mountains.

Event Highlights Include:

  • Friday, May 16 – Friday evening officially kicks off the festival with a craft beer pavilion, bike expo, music stage, food trucks, live art demonstrations and a bike beauty pageant complete with a pedi-cab mobile mariachi band.
  • Saturday, May 17 – Guided rides for all ages and abilities are available on Saturday. Primary trailheads will feature demo bikes and pro clinics for all skill levels. For the leisure bicyclist, there is the Tour de Brewer, a guided ride that stops at three local craft breweries where brew masters will share the basics of how to brew and taste beer. Additionally, a number of craft beer dinners will take place at signature restaurants, for which reservations are required. The evening entertainment includes New Belgium bike-in movie at Cowgirl and The Old 97s taking over the Santa Fe Sol stage. Additional events include the Single Track Sampler and Bike Demo.
  • Sunday, May 18 – The weekend culminates with the Santa Fe Century, a 100-mile bike ride that attracts 3,000 riders for a demanding tour of beautiful high desert landscape. For the serious athlete, the Gran Fondo Santa Fe offers competitive racing to test one’s abilities. The less adventurous can ride their bikes into Downtown Santa Fe for a lively Sunday at the Grand Opening of Marble Brewery or be a spectator at the BMX Dirt Jam at La Tierra.
