Planning to go for a ride along the W&OD Trail? Plan a pit stop at mile 16.5—that’s where Bike Lane Brewing & Cafe sits waiting with a frosty beer or iced coffee. Located inside of The Bike Lane shop, you can actually give your two-wheeler a tune-up while you sip.
Both the cafe and bike shop are co-owned by Todd Mader, a cycling aficionado and avid home-brewer of beer. He brings his natural knack for brewing delicious beer to the cafe, which pours his own creations alongside cold and iced cups of java from Swing’s Coffee. The trailside spot serves up a few snacks, as well, like salt-dusted soft pretzels and freshly baked vegan cookies—all crafted by local gourmands. Kick back with a chilled beverage out on the patio as you unwind from a ride, or just swing by and grab something to-go. << Back To Blogs
