The Red Hook Ride with 61 Local
Free guided tour open to the public, with a $5 tasting and tour at Cacao Prieto and a $10 tasting at Red Hook Winery ($15 total)
61 Local is proud to announce the kick off of their summer bike riding series. Join us the first Saturday of every month as we traverse through Red Hook for an inside look into the process and production of some of Brooklyn's finest crafts people, including Red Hook Winery, Sixpoint Brewery, Saxelby Cheese and many more. Each tour will include two stops, with ample time to sample the goods at each location and buy some tasty treats to take take home. Bring your own bike, or rent one from nearby establishments, like Bike Smith or Ride Brooklyn.
Our second ride of the summer will kick off on July 7th. Meet up at 61 Local at 11am with extra cash to grab a quick cup 'o joe and some breakfast before we head over to our first stop, Cacao Prieto. There will be two departure times. The first group will depart at 11:15am and the second group will depart at 11:45am. With $5 you get a tour and tasting of their chocolate wonders, then we'll pedal over to Red Hook Winery for their barrel tasting and tour of local wines ($10). We'll even be sprinkling in some pauses by the water front so you can take in the waterfront views and history that make this area of Brooklyn so special. We'll round out our day of two wheel transit back at 61 Local for lunch, beers, and good conversation sparked by a day of exploration. If you choose to participate in the ride, we ask that all cyclists begin and end with your tour guide at 61 Local. Please plan on sticking with the group for the entire tour.
What to bring: A bike, helmet (NO EXCEPTIONS), backpack to transport home any goodies you purchase along the way, water, sunglasses, and some cold hard cash for breakfast, products from our visits, lunch at 61 Local, and tips for your hard working cycling guides.
