The Urban Troubadour will kick off its roving concert season this year with bicycles and beer.

The first concert, dubbed "Bikes, Brews and Beethoven," will feature a five-mile bicycle ride from downtown Akron along the Towpath Trail to Magic City Brewing Co. for beer, food and a 20-minute concert with a flute and string trio. Concert-goers will then return along the trail to Missing Falls Brewery for more beer, food and music by a blues guitarist.

The ride begins at 1 p.m. Sept. 15 at 540 S. Main St.

"We've created events in all manner of interesting spaces, from penthouse loft apartments to glass blowing studios," Urban Troubadour Artistic/Executive Director, founder and flutist Jane Berkner said. "This is our first time to offer a concert event in a brewery.

"I got the idea from the owner of Dirty River Bicycle Works when he and his wife attended one of our concert events last year," she added. "They like our concept of presenting music in unusual ways, and asked when we would plan a bike ride to a concert. I am of the opinion that everyone will find a love of classical music when it is presented in their comfort zone. So bike riders and beer drinkers are encouraged to join us."

Tickets are $22 and are limited to those 21 and older. Participants have to provide their own bicycles.
