In my quick escape down to LBI I still had to get in some training. Wednesday morning I went out on the bike for about a 17 mile flat and fast ride. With little to no elevation changes I used this time to work on a few sprints here and there. Speed training is helpful to build up power and explosiveness.
After a great ride it was time to reward ourselves with the finest of beers on the island at Ship Bottom Brewery. Go check it out, get a free tour to drink some great beers! I had a flight. There were about eight different beers available on draft at the time of our visit. In my flight I had the Blueberry Bikini Bottom Wheat, Cerveza, Beach Patrol Hefeweizen, and Barnacle Bottom Stout.
My favorite was between the blueberry wheat and the beach patrol hefeweizen. Getting the miles in to enjoy the beer was well worth it. Ship Bottom Brewery started in 1995 and seems to having major growth. Most, if not all of the names of the beers have something to do with different things or places on Long Beach Island.
Bike for the beers!
