Bike ride promotes brewing company in former bakery

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

More than 100 cyclists rode from Waterloo to Cedar Falls Sunday.

It was a bakery to brewery bike ride.

The effort was to show support for Single Speed Brewing Company's plan to take over the old Wonder Bread building in downtown Waterloo.

The group called "Friends of Waterloo Wonder Bread Bakery" organized the ride. They say the building is very unique and needs to be saved.

"It's very important to the west side and the density to the west side but it's also interesting architecturally and it's been a bakery since 1925. It was built specifically for a bakery and it's an important part of Waterloo history. A lot of people remember the smell of baking bread well now you can have a beer instead," said David Deeds.

Single Speed has not presented their plan to take over the building to the city yet. That may happen in a few weeks.
