If you would like to be listed here please send us a note.

Horse and Dragon Brewing - The entire crew at Horse and dragon is wonderful and they make great beer to boot. Commonly our guests favorite stop on tour. You have to get your own water because Tatum will not let me carry the glasses, I have dropped a few trying to carry to many at one time. My favorite beer here is the Sad Panda Stout.
Odell Brewing Company - Odell Brewing is one of the main stops on every Beer & Bike in Fort Collins. From the staple Odells brews ranging from Easy Street to Cutthoart Porter they make some of the best tasting beers around. Our personal favorite is St. Lupulin.
Fernweh Hostel - The Fernweh hostel is conveniently located on Mulberry in Fort Collins. It is set about halfway between city park and Old town and really close to CSU. Kelsey is a great host and has created a calm and comfortable base for people to explore Fort Collins and the surrounding area from. You can even rent the whole house for reunions or groups of friends.

Recycled Cycles - No this is not a type-o. With the kind help of Dave Hudson and Recycled Cycles we would not be where we are today. Founded in 1978 Recycled Cycles strives to be the bike store for normal people. Do not be fooled...the owner and staff are far from normal. How could you be with such a great selection of new and used bikes to occupy your time with. If you are in the need of a new or used bike in Fort Collins, it is worth stopping in Recycled to see what they have in stock.
