Tips and Advice for Biking to the Bar - Moosejaw

Biking to the Bar

The secret is out: folks are biking everywhere these days. Bikers are biking to work, the grocery store, over to the dog park to play with other people's dogs, and of course, to the local watering hole to enjoy some food and drink with friends.


Make no mistake, biking to the bar is both an art and a science. Here are some basic guidelines to get you started:

Comfy Clothing: If you’ve been biking around town quite a bit, you’ve probably got this point covered. Pretty self-explanatory here. Wear clothing that will keep you comfortable while pedaling around. You shouldn’t feel restricted, especially when you’re supposed to be having fun.
Comfy Pack: Maybe you’re biking to the bar around the corner and heading home right afterward, or maybe you’ve been out and about all day and you’re stopping at a few bars in the evening. Either way, you’re probably carrying a few things. Just make sure you have a solid backpack, messenger bag, saddle bag or pannier to carry your stuff around. (I’ll be expounding on the merits of fanny packs in a whole other, long-form think piece).
Bike Lock: Okay, we get it. Your bar is a “locals only” bar where everybody knows your name. Maybe the bike rack is clearly in view at all times. That’s all fine and dandy, and I believe you, but you’d better be safe than sorry. Bring your bike lock.
Rain Shell: At this point, I have little faith in meteorologists and the weather changes fast in my town. I always recommend carrying a rain shell for emergency weather protection. Unexpected hazards have a knack of showing up when you... least expect them.
• Snack: Pack yourself a snack or a couple of snacks just in case. This is more of a personal rule, you don’t have to listen to me.
• Proper ID: Friendly reminder to bring your driver's license, passport or birth certificate.
Bike Lights: If you’re riding to the bar or back home after dark, make sure you have a set of bike lights ready to go. The best option is a white light in the front and a blinking red light attached to the back of your seat post. That way you can see in front of you on dimly lit streets while also alerting drivers in all directions. Love you, mom.
