Did you know you can be charged with driving under the influence on a bicycle in Pennsylvania?
Don’t ask me how I know that.
I took Lexi for a ride through the rolling hills of Pennsylvania last weekend.
I wanted three things that day:
1. Bike ride
But bike riding and beer on major freeways is apparently frowned upon.
The fact that it was also 7:30 in the morning is also irrelevant.
Beer and bike riding may not go together but beer and bread do.
And given that it was an early morning ride, we might as well make it a breakfast beer bread.
Banana Breakfast Beer Bread.
Banana Beer Bread
2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 large banana, mashed
1/2 cup turbinado sugar
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup Well’s Banana Bread Beer
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Add flour, baking powder, and salt to a small bowl and stir to combine.
In a large bowl, whisk together mashed banana, oil, and sugar.
Stir in beer.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir just to combine.
Spread batter (it will be thick) in prepared loaf pan.
Bake 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes.
Drinking and driving is stupid.
So is drinking and riding.
But I’ve never heard of anyone getting arrested for biking and breading.
Add that to your 5th grade bicycle safety course, Pennsylvania.
Speaking of safety, remember to wear your helmet.
While biking, that is.
Wearing it while drinking is optional.
Keep calm and
drink ride on!
