Spargetoberfest 1st Annual Fundo Bike Ride and Family Festival

On Saturday, August 6, Sparge Brewing hosts a Bike “Fundo”, a gravel road bike ride. Choose either the 40, 20, or 10-mile route. 40-mile riders will take off from Sparge Brewing at 7:00 AM, followed by the 20 milers at 8:00 and the ten milers at 9:00.

Not a bike rider? Join us on the field beginning at 9:00 to send off the ten milers and welcome the long-distance riders. Then relax with a Sparge beverage, lunch from a food truck, and browsing local vendors.

Registration for the Fundo is $1 per mile ($40, $20, $10).
