Bikes and broccoli

Not that anyone in Durango ever needed a reason to ride their bike, but here’s an excellent one. The Garden Project’s 12th annual Tour de Farms rolls into town this Sat., Aug. 17. This year’s event features a short (6-mile) family-friendly in-town route and a more gung-ho (17-mile) tour through the Animas Valley.

Both rides take off at 8:30 a.m. from the fair-grounds and conclude at 1 p.m. with an after-party, complete with lunch from Zia and Ska beer. All of this – including commemorative pint glass – is included in the $25 admission price. (Cost of all the exercise and warm fuzzies from contributing to such a worthy cause: priceless.)

Whiskey business

Hold onto your low balls. It seems the darling of the hipster yellow beer scene, Pabst Blue Ribbon, is getting into the whiskey business.
