So, if you are on this site then you must like beer. Most likely you also know someone with a prostrate(that would be most males). You may also like to bike. Well, this is your lucky day because you'll have a chance to drink, support and bike all at once.
On November 21st, the Mellow Mushroom restaurants in Orlando will be hosting a 24 mile round trip bike ride from the Mellow Mushroom at 11680 E. Colonial Drive in Orlando to the Mellow Mushroom at 2015 Aloma Ave. in Winter Park to support Pints for Prostates. For an entrance fee of $25 you will get the opportunity to sample some of Bell's Brewery's great beers and get to have some Mellow Mushroom pizza at the end of your ride. You will also be entered in a raffle for other great prizes. If the 24 miles is a bit much for you, you can also do a 12 mile ride back from the Winter Park location to the Orlando location. For more details, contact George or Kris at either store- (407)657-7755 for Winter Park or (407)384-4455 for Orlando.
Money raised from the event will go to support the Pints for Prostates campaign. Pints for Prostates was created by Rick Lyke, a drink journalist and prostate cancer survivor, in 2008. It helps to raise awareness about the need for men to get tested for prostate cancer through the language of beer. You can watch the video below to learn more about the cause and you can visit the Pints for Prostates site for more info about the cause and what you can do.
