1400 Miles uses a bike and a beer to spark difficult conversations with stubborn guys about prostate health.
PROSTATE CANCER IS THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF CANCER DEATH IN AMERICAN MEN and is largely preventable. Prevention is easy, but it starts with being comfortable talking about it and getting tested.
How are we making the conversation more comfortable? We are pedaling 1,400 miles on a bicycle from Austin to Denver. Along the route, we are hosting Community Rides and Refueling Parties. All proceeds will be split between Pints for Prostates and the Prostate Conditions Education Council.
Red's Porch is hosting a series of Dueling Pint Nights to help raise money for 1400 Miles. This week, Victory Beer Company and Deschutes Brewery go head to head to see which brewery will kick the kegs faster. Proceeds from the night will go towards Team North by Northwest's Fundraising efforts, they are trying to raise $14,000 and will participate in the the entire Big Ride!
Address: 3508 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704

What are people saying about 1400Miles?
Aaron Z. of NM
“1400 Miles isn’t just about men’s health, it’s about changing the tone of the conversation around it. It’s easier for me to join that conversation over a pint of my favorite craft beer.”
Rex R of Denver
Men are stubborn. 1400 Miles helps break the silence on prostate cancer by using a beer and a bike to reach men where they are most willing to talk.
Lindsey S. of Denver
1400 helped me find an approachable way to talk about a hard subject with the men I love.
Rick Lyke with Pints for Prostates
We’re reaching men through the universal language of beer and 1400 Miles got me back on a bike after 30 years out of the saddle. Is there anything craft beer — and bikes — can’t do?
