Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
On Thursday, June 6, 1,500 people joined BikeWalkKC at Theis Park for New Belgium Brewery’s Clips Beer and Film Tour. About 400 people arrived to the event by bicycle. By the end of the night, about 300 bicycles filled the bike valet parking area, and at least 100 more bikes were locked to trees and benches.
The audience enjoyed short films made by New Belgium fans once the sun went down. While some people came for the films, others undoubtedly came to sample some of the unique and difficult-to-find New Belgium brews from one of 16 taps.
More than $12,000 was raised to support BikeWalkKC’s work to improve walking and bicycling across the metro area, including:
"New Belgium's Clips Beer and Film Tour is always such a fantastic event, and we were so excited to see such a great turnout," said Eric Rogers, Executive Director of BikeWalkKC.
BikeWalkKC also signed up 17 new members at the event. Congratulations to Jeff Tromans who went home with the New Belgium cruiser.
