We are friends who love to ride anything with two wheels, run obstacle races, and love to drink beer. We have created this site to provide a resource for people to explore the great roads and trails of the southeast US, find interesting microbreweries, and hopefully have some fun along the way. After all, We Ride, We Drink, Life is Good…..
Hi, I’m Notorious, a 44 year old, 2-wheeled crazed, beer drinking maniac living in Knoxville TN. I have been an avid Motorcyclist and Mountain Biker for over 20 years and have ridden roads and trails from coast to coast in this great nation. During my travels I have also had the opportunity to visit some of the great craft breweries which has driven me to become a home brewer with aspirations of opening my own nano brewery. My friends and I started this blog to provide a resource for people to explore the great roads and mountain bike trails of eastern Tennessee and beyond to include reviews of local microbreweries and beers we encounter along the way. To contact me, please email Notorious@bikesnbeers.com.
Hi, I’m Throttle, 48 years young, also a 2-wheeled crazed, beer drinking adrenaline junkie. I love to ride on two wheels, fast, as fast as I can go, thus the nickname. I have been riding motorcycles since my late teens. I am a relative new comer to the mountain biking scene but am already sold out. In the 5 years I have been at it, I have managed to buy 4 mountain bikes and 2 downhill bikes (my new favorite). I have a passion for all things outdoors and love to regale the day’s challenges with friends over a cold beer. As a father of 4 my dream is to create a legacy for my children, to inspire them to live belter. I also intend to defy old age as long as I can, stay as active as I can, as long as I can. I hope to race mountain bikes with my youngest when she is my age. She is 4 years old. To contact me, please email Throttle@bikesnbeers.com.
They call me Wee Man but don’t let my height (or lack of it) fool you. I live a large life and can hold my own with the big guys. I have a dream of opening a microbrewery and restaurant and see BikesNBeers as the first step in making that dream come true. I want to demonstrate to my kids and family that anything is possible with the right attitude and hard work. I am a people person, problem solver and the designated BNB stunt man because I am willing to take on almost anything for the cause. I recently got my first “real” bike and will start hitting the trails soon, always with a cold beer and friends to follow. My email is WeeMan@bikesnbeers.com.
I am Princess Crash, or just Crash for short. I grew up in the country and spent my early life exploring the beautiful hills of East Tennessee. In 2011 I made a conscious decision to shed the 40 pounds that 15 years of sedentary life had put on me and to reconnect with the outdoors that I love. In less than a year I had lost the poundage, ran a couple 5Ks and bought a mountain bike. True, I have a yard sale every now and then (thus the name) but it doesn’t hamper my enthusiasm for riding. I am hooked. There is no feeling like pushing yourself past what you think is possible, celebrating your accomplishments with friends and rewarding yourself with a cold beverage. My goal is to be fit and to make my sons proud of having no ordinary mom. I want to give them a mom that is healthy and who has proven that hard work, dedication, and sometimes just plain stubbornness pays off, no matter how old you are. My email is PC@bikesnbeers.com.
