Barley's Bar is known for its Tuesday night "Barley's to Barley's Ride" where 40-60 riders ride from their Council Bluffs location, across the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, to the Omaha location at the Tip Top.
Saturday, July 18th, a cycling team sponsored by 42 Below Vodka is showing up at the Barely's in Omaha. The Barley's group will ride from Council Bluffs to the Omaha bar to hang out with the 42 Below group and some RAGBRAI teams, before pedaling back over to Council Bluffs for both the Sheryl Crow concert at Stir Cove and the Barenaked Ladies concert at the Mid-America Center. Barely's will also offer its shuttle service to provide some SAG support for people needing a ride that evening. The distance between bars is about eight miles, and runs along trails for most of the ride.
42 Below Vodka is sponsoring two teams to cycle across the US to drum up support for cycling and cycling advocacy. Read more about the 42Ride at http://www.welikebike42.com/
In the words of Barley's manager, Matt Johnson, "it would be an easy way for someone to experience part of RAGBRAI and still sleep in their own bed that night."
