February Theme: Tinfoil hats!

Sorry for the late notice, but it seems that Murph is a bit overwhelmed with life right now, so I’ll step in and announce the theme for this coming thursday. Since there isn’t much time to prepare for this week, let’s keep the theme simple:

Tinfoil hats!

Everybody has some tin (aluminum) foil laying around the house, right? Grab the tin foil and start cooking up some crazy ideas. Here are some thoughts to get you thinking:

  • Paper hats: Adapt paper hat ideas and use tinfoil instead.
  • Take an existing hat and wrap it in tinfoil — how about that now underused santa hat? Wrap it in tinfoil, slap in on your head and grab your bike.
  • Take a baseball cap and use an old coathanger to build an interesting shape on top of the hat. Then wrap the shape with tinfoil to create arbitrarily crazy hats!

I’m looking forward to seeing all of your creations on Thursday evening!

    Three things:
    1. Tin foil hats was awesome! There is something so cool about simplicity. The music was cool too especially since the hats DID pick up the radio signal. My brain cells were all rock-lobstering out.

    2. Obviously people are looking at the website. The theme was undecided and not posted until the Monday before the Bike Happening. Website in combination with word-of-mouth is awesome.

    3. Did you notice the other themes on the ride???? You to can create your own theme if the “offical” theme doesn’t float your boat. It’s all about participation. (by the way…Happy Birthday Scurvy)
