The Pint Cycle, a local business known for touring bars and restaurants around Fishers on a 16-person bicycle, will offer a new kind of riding experience from 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 15. President and owner Chris Hutchinson has partnered with the NFL Alumni Indianapolis Chapter to create a charity ride to benefit Caring for Kids, a scholarship fund for students in need.

With nearly 100 percent of the proceeds being donated to charity, the tour will be a chance for adults 21 and over to give back while pedaling with their bartender for the night, former Indianapolis Colts player Bill Schultz. Hutchinson said the tour won’t be like any other Pint Cycle offers. Beer and wine will be provided along with free sampling opportunities at the first stop at Four Day Ray Brewery.

“(Four Day Ray) will do kind of like a hosted sampling and education demonstration, so they’ll get a chance to not only taste the beer, but also hear the story behind it,” Hutchinson said. “Then one of the owners of the Four Day Ray Brewery is going to give them a private brewery tour where they’ll walk them through the inner workings of the brewery and show them the production facility and how they make the beer.”

Next, riders will get a tour of the City of Fishers before stopping at their final destination, Nickel Plate Bar and Grill, which happens to be Schultz’s favorite bar. Hutchinson said Schultz will likely bartend at Nickel Plate and sign footballs for all the riders. The tour also includes a souvenir Pint Cycle cup. Hutchinson said an after-tour party at Nickel Plate also is planned.

Hutchinson said he wants the charity ride to raise awareness for the NFL Alumni organization and its mission.

“As you can imagine, there are a ton of former NFL players across the U.S.,” Hutchinson said. “The amount of time and energy that they put in to try and help, particularly kids that come from troubled backgrounds, is pretty impressive. So if I can help give back in any way, that’s a big part of the mission of the Pint Cycle.”

Tickets for the two-hour charity tour are $100 per person. To reserve a spot, visit
