It's no secret that cyclists like to knock back the occasional brew—a round-up of the best bike bars wouldn't have made much sense if they didn't—which is why we decided to put together a list of the best places to catch some high-level racing and have a good time. Cyclocross, which features a seemingly perfect mix of spectator-friendly loop courses, mud, and crazed fans, is especially well represented. But big races like the Tour de France and the Philly Race offer plenty chances to catch pro-level road racing and even do some riding yourself. Whichever style of riding you prefer, we suspect you'll find an event here worth celebrating. Responsibly, of course.
