Tour De Manc 2018
Cycling & Beer!!
The Tour de Manc cycle sportive is now entering its third year, and this year it’s set to be the best one yet!
There are 2 rides, ‘The Full Manc’ which is a grueling 100 mile tour of every borough in Greater Manchester, and ‘The Half Manc’ which is a tough 100km ride of blood, sweat and gears following a similar (but thankfully shorter) route.
These rides are organised on an entirely voluntary basis in order to raise significant funds for registered charities, whilst also promoting cycling inclusivity and cycling for health benefits. For details about the rides, visit http://www.tourdemanc.co.uk/services/the-rides/
So what does this have to do with us? We’re pleased to say that for the second year we’ll be brewing a special beer called ‘The Full Manc IPA’ which is a full flavoured, refreshing IPA to promote the event. You’ll be able to drink it in pubs from W/B 13th March, and for the collectors out there, a 2018 design beer mat will be in circulation. In addition, we’ll be donating beer for the after party – so anyone that takes part in the event can enjoy a tipple after the race.
I (Carley) rode the 100km last year and it was a fantastic event; brilliantly organised, with plenty of food stops (jam and cream scones included!!) and a fantastic support team. I’ll be there again this year – shout up if you’re getting involved too – perhaps we could put together a Team Brightside!
