On a sunny, crisp fall day, bicyclists participated in the first annual Friday Harbor Bike and Brew event. Sponsored by the San Juan Island Lion's Club, the event raised funds for college scholarships and health care needs including testing for early detection of childhood eye disease.

Island Cutthroat Pirates served up breakfast before the cyclists took off at 9 a.m. Following the bike event, a brew fest was held at Brickworks. Featured were four local island microbreweries: San Juan Island Brewing Company, Friday Harbor Brewing Company, Island Hoppin’ Brewery, and Lopez Island Brewing Company.
The Lions Club wants to thank their premier sponsors for making this event possible:
Meat Machines Cycles
Organizers also want to thank all of their wonderful 2nd and 3rd level sponsors and personal sponsors who believed in them and financially backed this event as it was being planned. The Lions Club hopes to make this a regular community event that promotes charity, exercise, fun, and support of local businesses.
