Beer and breakfast tacos are the lifeblood of great weekends. Add bikes to the equation, and you can enjoy that combination with a smug sense of accomplishment and residual endorphins.

Velo Funk is a new beer-taco-bike collaboration between The Collective Brewing Project and Velogold Bicycles to promote Fort Worth’s burgeoning Near Southside. On Sunday, July 9, the second of three 25-mile group bicycle rides toured through downtown and several other neighborhoods. TCBP co-founder and head brewer Ryan Deyo said that the ride is intended to build community for the Near Southside area. Riders receive two beers, breakfast tacos by Taco Heads, and a handsome steel pint cup, not to mention great conversations and friendly faces — from exercising beer nerds to taco enthusiasts. Not bad for $25.

TCBP stakes its reputation on funky and sour beer styles. Their newest edition on tap is Cup O’ Beer, a gose style brewed with massive amounts of ramen noodles, which garnered recent viral fame and attention from the brewing and beer community.
