Beer lovers will have a chance to pedal through Christmas lights in Fishers as the Pint Cycle opens up its first year of holiday tours , which run through Dec. 22.
The 16-person bike will take participants to Four Day Ray Brewing and Brixx in Fishers for a chance to enjoy specialty holiday drinks as well as cruising through the lights in the Municipal Complex.
“FDR is launching a Snowshed Winter Ale that passengers will have access to, and we are working with Brixx on developing a Pint Cycle cocktail for the month of December reflective of cold wintery times, like a peppermint-based drink or hot toddy or something along those lines,” co-owner Chris Hutchinson said.
The holiday tour is only available 6 to 8 p.m. and is $415 for the whole bike or $30 per person.
“We worked with the City of Fishers pending weather and pending their ability to clear streets and sidewalks, etc.,” Hutchinson said. “The tours are dependent on weather, but we got access to go up on sidewalks and cruise through lights in the Municipal area. Instead of cruising around them (on the streets), we cruise through them.”
Hutchinson said although the tour is outdoors during winter months, pedalling the bike keeps participants warm. He encourages riders to wear warm clothes. The Pint Cycle opened for its first tour in June.
“With Four Day Ray not opening until later, the uniqueness of our tour probably took a little bit of a hit, but now they’re open,” Hutchinson said. “We will still have it running through the end of the year with the December holiday lights tour concept. We feel pretty good about ending the year and starting next spring.”
