This Tuesday and every Tuesday, take a social bicycle ride that tours through the fun parts of Birmingham. See what cycling in the ‘Ham is all about. All biking abilities are welcomed, no spandex required. The ride will follow a 12-mile loop through the Magic City.

Where and What time?

Everyone meets at 6:00 P.M. and rolls out around 6:15 P.M. every Tuesday from the back patio at Avondale Brewing Company. Follow the leaders and stay close to the right as you and your bike cycle through the ‘Ham. Most of the ride should be in the daylight, but Le Tour De Ham does encourage the use of front and back lights so you can see.
