About this Event

Looking to make new friends in your adult life on the TRAIN?! Now's your chance! Bring your bike, wear your favorite t-shirt, and join us for a speed friending adventure on the train! Meet at Hops & Grain for a quick drink before we ride our bikes to catch the MetroRail Red Line at Plaza Saltillo. Once on the train, we will do a round of speed friending, switching seats every couple of minutes. This will be an evening you'll never forget - and you'll be leaving with new friends and wacky stories to tell.

In partnership with CapMetro, we'll provide you with a Rail pass and there is a bike shelter at Plaza Saltillo in which we can lock up and store our bikes.

The train will drop us off at the Highland Station where we will walk together to the Brewtorium for a drink and games. After we make everlasting friendships, we will catch the train back to Plaza Saltillo for our bikes - and you can continue the evening with your new BFF!
