Vail Restaurants Kick Off Annual Summer Cruiser Crawl

Vail lures locals and visitors outdoors with its warm temperatures, beautiful scenery and friendly vibe, but three Vail restaurants are looking to entice folks to get out on the town with the annual Cruiser Crawl summer program. Kicking off Wednesday, June 11, the 2014 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, Vail Chophouse in Lionshead, 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 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 three 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. Participants must be present to win and no purchase is required.

The 2014 Vail Cruiser Crawl series will feature a different route each month:

Wednesday June 11th 5-8pm

Sunday July 13th 3-6pm

Sunday August 10th 3-6pm

All bikes are welcome on the crawl. For folks that do not have a bike, Charter Sports at the Vail Cascade Resort are offering discounted rates on bike rentals. No advance registration is required.
