This Saturday, Sept. 15, Friday Harbor Harbor Bike-n-Brew offers a choice of three bike routes exploring the back roads of San Juan Island. There is:

· The Mount Grant Grinder, for those who like a serious challenge in altitude gain.

· The Metric Century for a roughly 62-mile ride (100 kilometers).

· The Scenic Loop for families and cruisers.

Before the ride, eat breakfast at 9 a.m. at the starting area at the San Juan County Fairgrounds with the Cutthroat Pirates. After the ride, starting at 4 p.m., enjoy samples of island-crafted microbrews while sharing biking stories with fellow riders at the finish line at the Marie Boe Building at the fairgrounds. Delicious food from local vendors will also be available.

Tickets are limited and are on sale now. Tickets for the bike event ($60) and brew event ($25) are sold separately. You may purchase tickets for one or both events. Last year, there was perfect weather, and all had a wonderful time. Have a look at the photo gallery.

All proceeds from the event support projects of the San Juan Island Lions Foundation, such as community sight and hearing programs and scholarships for local high school students.
