Allentown Bike Race to be Run Through Brewpub

I don't think they will be adding this to the Tour de France next year, but on Sunday the Tour de Brew will run through the Allentown Brew Works.

The Fat Tire Crit is the final race of a nine event cycling festival being held in Allentown, Pa. Nine of the 15 laps in the mountain bike race will pass through the Allentown Brew Works while the brewpub is open serving food and drinks.

"I think this is probably the coolest idea that anyone has come up with yet," Mayor Ed Pawlowski is quoted as saying by the Allentown Morning Call.

Race organizers believe it is the first time an event sanctioned by the U.S. Cycling Federation includes an indoor section through a brewery.
