Cycling. More people than ever are becoming two-wheeled warriors – just like more people than ever are discovering the flavour and choice of craft beer. But the two can’t go together, can they? They sure as hell can. Saddle up and clip in – the BrewDog Chain Gang is here.

And we are seeking new members to ride with us.

Our new global cycling club unites anyone with a passion for cycling and craft beer. The BrewDog Chain Gang uses bars as Clubhouses, giving the perfect place to meet up and hit the road and then the even more perfect place to relax afterwards with a beer and refuel with food. Shoot the breeze with likeminded men and women and then power through that breeze with your Chain Gang crew.

The Chain Gang currently rocks over 530 pedal-powered people in ten different chapters – each centred on a city around the world. Local chapters have rides maintained on the Strava Club House as their hub. Here you can join rides, post times and generally keep up with how your hometown gang is doing on the roads or trails. Anyone who shares a love of cycling can join - roadies, fixies, downhillers – it’s all good!

Recent Chain Gang rides have rolled out from BrewDog Glasgow to DogTap in Ellon for the AGM weekend, and an equally legendary cycle from the site of BrewDog Tower Hill to BrewDog Brighton. Don’t have a BrewDog bar in your city? Until one arrives you can hook up with a Chain Gang running from a local craft beer bar instead – we have hard rollin’ chapters in Calgary and San Sebastian at the moment (as well as UK routes focusing on Edinburgh, Reading, Birmingham and more).

If you’d bunny hop at the chance to lead a pack of fellow cyclists then we are looking for Ride Leaders to take point on new chapters, creating interesting and fun routes in cities across the US, Australia, the UK and Europe. You could become the life-blood of your local chapter both on the road/trail and back at your Club House – our target is to rock 100 chapters of our Chain Gang by the end of the year!

Because the gear is as important as the gears, we are also unleashing a range of BrewDog cycle merch so that you can look the part and recognise each other when pounding the asphalt. Made in collaboration with the awesome guys at Milltag we have a Men's Chain Gang cycle jersey, Women's jerseyGilet and water bottles to keep hydrated along the way. Check back soon for more – you can pre-order an epic jacket, cap, mitts, musette and bib too!

If you love nothing better than hitting the roads or hills on two wheels then we can make it even better – just add craft beer. Join the BrewDog Chain Gang and happy rolling!

Black is the stealth hi-viz.

Shame brewdog bars are all city centre. Perfect for city folk to meet up, not for out of towners.

Enjoy the ride :-)

Tuesday rides from BrewDog US in Canal Winchester, OH. Been going on since last year.....except during the winter which is still going on here in Ohio :(

Stephen David B - Facebook is used to create events for rides, but as far as I know you can sign up to Strava without it. Maybe drop an email to and confirm with them how crucial Facebook is to being a Ride Leader

My nearest Brewdog bar is Newcastle
Would like to get involved, poss as a leader
I don't have Facebook, is that mandatory?

Morning guys, are there any plans for an Oxford chapter?
anonymous 27.04.2018 @ 9:26pm
East London is patiently waiting for a Chain Gang innit.
Dave 27.04.2018 @ 8:32pm
Is there a chapter in Cumbria. Just wish there was a breeding in the forgotten county of cumbria

Really good initiative!
As a suggestion, could you try to have a strava group for each location? One of the most useful things of being part of clubs are the notifications of the rides that are added.
In the case of BrewDog Chain Gang, I'd be receiving notifications for rides all around the world, not necessarily relevant when living in Manchester.

Ian - We would love it to be for all levels, I'd join the Ellon chapter and then ask the Ride Leader. Hopefully they can help you with a knee-friendly route.

Phil - We deliver to Australia via DHL - if you only see UK options under shipping once added to your basket, change the country of billing on the right to Australia - the shipping should then change over to Aus/Pacific.
Ian 27.04.2018 @ 9:16am
Hi, what level are we supposed to be at, thinking of joining the ride at ellon but concerned about being left. Haven't been on my bike in nearly a year as I've had a new knee
Phil 27.04.2018 @ 3:05am
Love it! Am I missing something or is there no international shipping?

Keen to have a go at starting a chapter in Brisbane, Australia - ultimately using the new brewhouse/taproom as the Clubhouse when it opens (plenty of other great craft beer bars to use in the meantime, though).

Birmingham BrewDog Chain Gang's next ride:
Wednesday 2nd May 6pm
Meet at the bar for a 6pm start. A quiet route out of town towards Clent. One short horribly steep climb out of the basin and downhill all the way to a refreshing cold one in the bar.
Carl 26.04.2018 @ 5:22pm
Cracking stuff! I'll be riding from Bristol to Cardiff Brewdogs in August, only 50 miles but I'll be carrying on around the Welsh coast then home on my own for charity. Just need a BrewDog in Derby to finish at.
Alan 26.04.2018 @ 5:08pm
Get moving with the Perth bar and it’s on ????????
Greay 26.04.2018 @ 1:42pm
Keen! Just need to get my arse back on a bike now and get fit before I sign up ????

Tommy - Enjoy the gear! The link works for me but I will check it out. It leads to
Tommy G 26.04.2018 @ 11:52am
Yes. Wanted some brewdog cycle gear for long enough. The link ‘seeking new members’ doesn’t seem to work. Trying to open on iPhone 10.
Bradley G 26.04.2018 @ 11:20am
Awesome idea. If I only had a bike!
Eoin 26.04.2018 @ 11:04am
I've long wanted Brewdog cycle gear thanks for finally making it a reality. They look bad ass
