LEXINGTON (WSLS 10) - On Saturday, September 10, Devils Backbone Brewing Company will welcome cyclists in its first Brewery 2 Brewery ride to benefit the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.

This 75-mile recreational ride will start at the Devils Backbone Outpost Brewery & Tap Room (50 North Wind Lane, Lexington) and go through the Virginia heartland on paved state and county maintained roads, including the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway.

Cyclists will finish at Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows (200 Mosbys Run, Roseland) where they will be greeted with live music by Mississippi Leg Hound and cold Devils Backbone Daypack beers.

"I'm excited to see people push themselves on this ride," says Coey Jenkins, Quality Manager at Devils Backbone and an avid biker. "It's a hard course, but riding up and over is a major accomplishment - fun and high fives is what it's all about."

The ride will begin with a rolling start at 8:30 a.m. and all riders must depart by 9 a.m.

Registration is $65 and cyclists can register online now. The online route cue sheet is also available. Registered cyclists will receive a $10 voucher for food and drinks, which can also be used to purchase beer for those 21 and older.

Three Kroger sponsored rest stops will also be available to riders along the course. Exclusive Devils Backbone club cut jerseys, which feature the Devils Backbone logo, as well as detailed topography maps of Lexington and Roseland regions, are available online for purchase in both men's and women's sizes.

Riders can make reservations for a post-ride shuttle that will bring cyclists back to the Outpost Brewery to retrieve their vehicles. Bicycles are not allowed on the shuttle, but a secure bike corral will be set up at Basecamp.
