Wilmington, Delaware — Hagley’s popular Bike and Hike series expands the excitement this summer with selected evenings featuring Dogfish Head craft beers and Belin House Organic Café sliders.
Bike and Hike runs 5-8 p.m. every Wednesday, June 1 to August 31, weather permitting. Stroll, jog, or cycle a three-mile loop from Hagley’s Visitor Center to Eleutherian Mills and back. Participants can explore parts of the picturesque, 235-acre property not usually open to visitors.
All Bike and Hikes are weather-permitting, with updates posted on www.hagley.org.
Bike, Hike and Brews adds to the fun on June 22, July 13, August 3, and August 24. On Workers’ Hill, Dogfish Head beers and a special menu from Chef Roy at the Belin House Organic Café will be available for purchase. The star of the special menu will be sliders, of chicken or pork, with the style changing each time. The opening Bike, Hike and Brews on June 22 features music from WSTW. Brews nights are sponsored by Dogfish Head’s Beer & Benevolence Program.
All Bike and Hike participants can pack their own food, order a Picnic Tote in advance from the café, or choose something to eat when they arrive. The complete Belin House Organic Café menu will be available for every Bike and Hike. Picnic totes (sandwiches, sides, dessert, and soft drinks) are $20, and orders are due by 3 p.m. each Tuesday at 302-658-2400, ext. 271. Plates, napkins, and utensils are included. The totes are handmade by a local artisan and are a keepsake for participants. Woodside Farm Creamery will be at Bike and Hike on July 6 and August 10, offering a selection of ice cream for purchase.
The last Wednesday of the month will be dog days. On June 29, July 27, and August 31, dogs are invited to join their people. Leashes for dogs and waste removal are required.
Admission to all Bike and Hikes is $2; members and children under 5 are free. There is free admission to Special Olympics of Delaware athletes and their families. Use Hagley’s main entrance off Route 141 in Wilmington, Delaware.
