Air up your tires, oil up your chains, and tighten your helmet strap! The Marine Resources Council (MRC) once again teams with the Great Bike-Bar-A-Thon Charity Bicycle Pub Crawl group to raise awareness and funds to save the Indian River Lagoon, Saturday, September 29, 2018! This is the Bicycle group’s 6th ride and their second collaboration with MRC. Their last ride raised over $3,000.00. The group hopes to attract over 100 riders and raise over $4,000.00 to benefit MRC’s effort to protect and improve the water quality of our cherished lagoon.
Pub Crawl participating venues include Sebastian’s most popular destinations such as, Riverview Park (12:30 p.m.), Pareidolia Brewing Co. (1:00 p.m.), Mash Monkeys Brewery Co.
