Ride and Dine: Splitrock Tap & Wheel


Finishing a task feels good, but multitasking sometimes feels even better, and it’s just what Fairfax’s Splitrock Tap & Wheel offers. The former Fairfax Cyclery space, which had been operating as just a bike shop, has been reconfigured and now also serves food and an assortment of beers.

Menu standouts include the Drop pizza — mozzarella cheese, red sauce, pepperoni, fresh tomato, garlic and fresh basil — and appetizer plates of citrus-marinated olives and house-made pickles, all ideal treats for worn-out cyclists coming off the mountain trails.

Beers on tap are almost exclusively local favorites, with a couple of San Diego breweries like Green Flash in the mix. The new concept was inspired by mountain resorts where a day on the slopes ends with beer, food and socializing, and really, what’s better than that?
