Help TBAG raise funds at Maple-Ash Bash March 30


UPDATE! Get your bike on before the beer & band show up for the Maple Ash Bash Saturday, March 30. Show up at 11 a.m. Saturday at the downtown Cartel (1 N. 1st Street Phoenix) for a fun and festive photo scavenger ride to the Tempe Cartel. The 13.7-mile ride will stop at five locations, where cyclists will be invited to take a pic of a secret item – the winner will get tattooed! Wondering what to wear? Get out your tutu and leotard, any wacky costumes are welcome!

Find the Cartel-to-Cartel route here.

Once back, enjoy some brew and friends at the main Maple Ash Bash from 1- 8 p.m. at the Tempe Cartel Coffee Shop.

Come check out a few bike races and live music while sipping on suds poured by your trusty TBAG friends. TBAG will collect the $4 per beer cost and make your money work for you in our many community and awareness projects. Not feeling thirsty yet? Brews will be donated by:
