Tour de Tap-Stillwater

Saturday, August 23. The route starts and ends at Lift Bridge Brewing Company in Stillwater. I will visit Flat Earth, Tin Whiskers, Urban Growler, Bang Brewery, Bent Brewstillery, Barley John’s Brew Pub, Big Wood and return to Lift Bridge. Google maps suggests it will be about 58 miles, assuming no wrong turns. If you don’t want to ride that far, you are welcome to join anywhere along the route. I keep a pretty tight schedule. Happy Biking! Al
