Bikes & Brews on Route 151

Great biking road with pastoral scenery. Local craft beer. Great food and views. Perfect combination of relaxing and saying active.

This DIY bike & brews tour is perfect for combining a relaxing day with some activity. There are also wineries along this route if folks in your group want a break from the hops. You can start at any of the three breweries, but I would recommend this itinerary: Park at Blue Mountain Brewery and ride on to Wild Wolf where you will do your first tasting, then continue down 151 until you reach Devil's Backbone. Take some time at this one as the views are incredible and you can spend some serious time on the back porch here soaking it all in. When you are ready, clip back in and head back to Blue Mountain via 151. You have now completed your 26 mile ride and are ready to tuck into one of their legendary wood-fired pizzas! Grab a growler for the road of their excellent craft beer.

A lot of people drive to these three breweries, but this is hands down my favorite way to experience them. The views are great riding around and you get to see the landscape in a whole new way. Plus is there a better bonding experience than enjoying beverages while completing an awesome ride? I think not.

This is a great adventure. Its in a gorgeous part of the state with solid beer and awesome food, not to mention some amazing cycling. Checkout all the area has to offer if you're looking for an entire weekend out here!

Nelson County is the bomb! There are also cideries close by (one literally across from Devil's Backbone). Scenic views with refreshments! Plenty of hiking around too!
