Leave it to the crew at Crescent Ballroom to deliver on a super-straightforwardly named community cycling event. What you read is what you get with the downtown hangout’s weekly gathering called Bikes, A Balcony, and Some Beers. Every Thursday, bicyclists of all levels are invited to meet up on the hotspot’s balcony at 8 p.m. before embarking on a 45-ish-minute easygoing ride through the city. Once that’s wrapped, participants make their way back to the upper level at 308 North Second Avenue for a round (or two) of chilly brews. There’s no charge to join the ride, but beer and burrito costs vary. For details on the event, presented by Slippery Pig Bike Shop,
