Crazy Creative Bike Fun!


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

    We had a successful tall bike rodeo at the pozo salloon complete with jousting. pvc pipe with stuffed animals taped to the end is all it takes–and a little beer courage. Photos on the tall bike site.

    if we can get New Belgium or someone else to donate the kegs, could this be a fundraiser for some deserving nonprofit like … oh, i dunno, the SLO County Bicycle Coalition?

    New Belgium’s “tour de fat” is designed to be a fundraiser for local non-profits, especially those that promote alternatives to our asinine dependency to petroleum products. What ever event we come up with will certainly benefit anyone who is actively MAKING SLO A BETTER BIKE TOWN.

    So, YES, the The SLO County Bicycle Coalition would be the ideal recipient of our bicycle fun funds.
