Tower 10 IPA

10% AlcBV • 9 SRM • 70 IBU

Karl Straus Red Trolley Ale

Mission Beach, the late 1980s. Amid a sea of neon bikinis, Tower 10 marked the spot where two college grads and a 75 year-old master brewer drew up plans for the first local craft brewery in San Diego since Prohibition. Named in honor of our first good idea, Tower 10 IPA is brewed to inspire the next one.

Tower 10 IPA boasts hops from beginning to end, and everywhere in between. We fill the brew kettle to the brim with assertive Chinook hops, giving the beer intense grapefruit and pine flavors that linger through its dry finish. After fermentation, we dry hop with a blend of Cascade and Centennial hops for a floral citrus aroma. A touch of lightly kilned caramel malts make Tower 10 a well balanced, full flavored IPA.

We Owe Someone $100. Is it you?

San Diego Bicycle ClubDuring the March Club Night raffle we gave away more than $1,200 worth of prizes. The grand prize was $200 to Toast and Acqua al 2. However, we only had a $100 certificate in the envelope. We still owe the winner a second $100 certificate. We know what you look like, we just don't have your name. So if that's you please pick it up from Treasurer/Training Director Mike McLaughlin before any Saturday ride.

Other Items Of Interest

The following items are not sponsored or endorsed by SDBC but may be of interest to the general membership.

Join us April 20th for The Gordy Shields Memorial Ride

A ride in honor of cycling advocate Gordy Shields.

Gordy ShieldsApril 20th is the date past city council woman, Donna Frye, declared as "Gordy Shields Day" in honor of all his work on the Bayshore Bikeway and resurfacing of Fiesta Island Perimeter Rd. It is also the anniversary of his birthday since his passing last June 2013. It is also EASTER SUNDAY.

To remember his advocacy for our cycling community we are planning a ride from  Grossmont College to Fiesta Island and back with a stop at Rubio's on Mission Gorge for refueling.

The route is about 50 miles. Arrive at 7:45 AM and be ready to roll at 8 AM. We will depart promptly at 8 AM from the Flagpole turnabout in front of Grossmont College. (Address: 8800 Grossmont College Dr. El Cajon 92020 - LOTS OF FREE PARKING ON CAMPUS - Don't worry about getting a ticket!) Traveling on a safe route between the San Diego River and Fashion Valley Road, we plan to roll onto Fiesta Island about 9:30. The lunch stop should take place at approximately 11-11:30 AM and we will plan on being back to the college at around 12:30-1 PM. This ride is in no way associated with Grossmont College or employees. It is a fun ride at a conversational pace. We will help with issues as they may arise, but ask that you arrive with a mechanically sound bicycle and your own equipment to  service any issues that could come up.

Note: The SDBC Sunday Ride will participate in this event and there will be no Sunday ride leaving from UC Cyclery. As SDBC members, we may be called upon to assist in ride leader duties if the group is large.

JOIN US - If you have questions, please contact Pat Murray at or Darryl MacKenzie at

Former SDBC Racer Advanced to Cat 1

Sarah Carroll SCCA/Starbucks Racer ProfileOne of SDBC's alumna has made it to Cat 1. Sarah Carroll came up through the Development rides from 2008-2010 and graduated to the B ride. Bea took Sarah under her wing over the winter of 2009-2010 to prepare her for the race season and should be proud of what she's helped Sarah accomplish.

Sarah is yet another great example of the club working to identify riders, plant the idea to start racing and then mentoring them into the peloton.Click here to see the profile from the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance that was featured about Sarah's racing career and she mentions starting out with SDBC.

Bikes for Birthdays

Remember the time you received your first bike? Most of us do.  It was an exciting moment that allowed us to accomplish not only the satisfaction of riding a bike on our own, but also the freedom to explore the world around us and create our own adventures. Look back for a minute on the miles of smiles, friends and unforgettable experiences that all began with that moment. What an impact it sure had on your life.

What if we could give that gift to an unsuspecting child, a child facing adversity and major challenges in their life? What if we could give them a gift - in addition to a new bike  - of unconditional love? A message that no matter what, there are people in this world, in your own community, who are here to help and support you. Imagine the journey that this might set them on....

We have launched a new venture, a non-profit called Bikes for Birthdays, where we can give the opportunity to change the course of a child's life by simply making a small donation. Please take a minute to check out our website and watch the short video. Once each child is funded, we go out and buy them a bike and some basic equipment. The bike is delivered on their birthday, with a special message in a card "signed" by all of those who contributed. Please note this is our initial goal...we are expecting to do much more with this program in the future as we are sure it will be successful and put a smile on many faces.

Thank you for taking the time to check out our program.
