Serk Cycling Beijing
The third in our series of social brunch rides for the year. Lots of riders are arriving back after summer holidays so its perfect time to get together and share summer cycling stories and pics. Our host will be our favourite healthy eatery - Obentos. Obentos serves healthy Japanese food and is the brainchild of Andrew Stevenson - regular Serk riders and seriously good triathlete.
Andy has put together a unique shared menu for the Serk crew with a 20% discount. It's different to the standard menu so its something new to experience even for Obentos regulars. He has also included happy hour prices on Guanxi Pale Ale bottles (25rmb) for the whole day. We know where we will be spending our Sunday afternoon !
In terms of the ride there are 2 options (actually these events are all about the food and the riding just gives you an excuse to eat more)
A. Meet at Serk and ride out to the wenyu river for a loop. Approx 80km
B. Meet at Serk and ride out to wenyu and back Approx 40km.
This is a great event to bring a friend along to that might not be a hard core cyclist. The ride is flat and easy !
Event/ Food Costs :
Ride plus Brunch : 220 RMB if you are a Serk ride pass holder (it does not count towards your ride pass) or 250 RMB if you don't have a Serk Ride Pass. Inclusive of brunch.
Please note limited to 20 spots only. To reserve your place please pre-pay with WeChat or Alipay or drop into the shop and pay in cash.
