Sober take

Posted on Thu, Jun 27, 2013 at 4:00 AM

The story on beer drinking in the Bitterroot is one of the most irresponsible pieces of journalism I have read in a long time (see “Bottoms up” in the annual Explorer special section). Biking and drinking is dangerous enough, but then you blew off the bartenders good advice about the bike path (which is awesome), then you get back to your car and having drunk enough to be legally intoxicated you drive the killer stretch of road. Additionally, you make the ride seem like a great accomplishment, but it is really a lovely 20 cruise for anybody who bikes at all regularly. I think the breweries are awesome, but a designated driver is necessary if you drive the trip, let alone bike it.
