The event is here to give you a taste of the bigger show (occurring later in the month on June 21), to give you a sampling of beer and bemusement that these festivities are all about, and to raffle off a bicycle that would be quite sporting for a cruise in TdF’s bicycle themed parade.  Collectively these events benefit bicycling groups in Raleigh, the Triangle, and greater North Carolina!  Here are the details:

Time:  1PM – 6PM Rain or Shine (see schedule below)

Place:  Raleigh Times (14 E Hargett St)

Bring:  Yourself, a costume for the photo booth,
