June Theme: 10 Year Anniversary Formal

prom

Just get use to June being the annual formal theme. We will be doing it every year from now on to celebrate the Bike Happening Anniversary.

Go hit the thrift stores if you don’t have an old prom dress, bride’s maid dress, funky suit or tuxedo. (formal wear is always a good stand-by costume for future themes you just can’t pull off in time)

Crazy Creative Bike Fun!

TourDeFat

Ok, it’s time that San Luis Nabisco steps up a notch and holds an event like the New Belgium Brewery “Tour de Fat”. An event that would involve all ages of bike, music and beer enthusiasts.

I’m thinking that a central downtown location, like say Mitchell Park on Osos and Pismo, would be a perfect venue to have a crazy-people-on-bikes beer and bike extravaganza. Hmmmmm, that sounds like fun to me.

And of course this would not be a renegade event with us just showing up at the park with kegs and bike ballet. We would get the blessings for the SLO Park and Rec. Dept. and the SLOPD.

What would really matter is would YOU show up in your costumed alter-ego on a weekend afternoon to drink a few brews in the sun and play bike games like “Bike Limbo”, “SLOw Bike”, and of course BIKE SUMO?

Check out what they are doing in San Francisco.

Also, I think EVERYONE who rides with the BIKE HAPPENING should make the NEW BELGIUM WONDERBIKE PLEDGE
