Local Hoteliers and Restaurateurs in Vail Partner Up to Launch a Monthly Cruiser Crawl

Vail lures locals and visitors outdoors with its warm temperatures, beautiful scenery and friendly vibe, but four local businesses are looking to entice folks to get out on the town with a new cruiser crawl summer program. Kicking off Wednesday, June 20th, the 2012 Vail Cruiser Crawl series is a free, monthly outing that takes bicyclists on a five-mile loop with libation hydration stops at The Fitz in Manor Vail Lodge, Frost in The Sebastian Hotel, the Vail Chophouse and Atwater on Gore Creek, Vail Cascade's signature creekside restaurant, offering a journey through the world of creative cuisine, handcrafted brews, customized beer flights and artisan food pairings.

At each Cruiser Crawl, participants will receive a Crawl Pass they can use at each stop to purchase specially priced $6 Herradura Tequila and Little Black Dress Vodka signature drinks. Participants that stop at any one of the Cruiser Crawl locations will also receive one punch on their Crawl Pass per stop, for a total of up to four punches. Each punch can be redeemed for one raffle ticket at the final Cruiser Crawl stop for a chance to win a TREK Cruiser bike, valued at $600. A new bike will be given away at each Cruiser Crawl and the raffle will begin promptly at 7:30pm. Participants must be present to win and no purchase is required. 

The June 20 Cruiser Crawl will start at The Fitz (4-5pm) and will be followed by stops at Frost (5-6pm), the Vail Chophouse (6-7pm) and end at Atwater on Gore Creek (7-8pm). The 2012 Vail Cruiser Crawl series will run from 4-8pm and will feature a different route each month. Future series dates include: 

All bikes are welcome on the crawl. For folks that do not have a bike, Venture Sports and Charter Sports at the Vail Cascade Resort are offering discounted rates on bike rentals.

No advance registration is required.
