Hub City Bike Pub Crawl promotes cycling/businesses

Some Hattiesburg bicycle enthusiasts hit the road in the Hub City Tuesday night in a first-ever event to promote both cycling and local businesses.

A spring "Bike Pub Crawl" began at Keg and Barrel on Hardy Street and made stops at 4 different restaurants and clubs.

Participants are hoping to encourage more bike riding in the city.

Organizers say similar rides will be held quarterly.
