Well, it seems like you can't swing a dead cat these days without hitting a kickass weekend of bike partying or some rad new bike event. And that's a good thing! The latest and greatest comes from our beloved friends in Victoria...
In the words of Triane, Recyclista and Velovixen extraordinaire:
Did you miss out on your high school prom?
Did you go but wish it never ended?
Do you hate proms but love your bike?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may need to find yourself a date for the
Bike Rider's Ball
A Recyclistas and Bike Lab Event
Friday April 27 – Wednesday May 2
Bike Inspired Art Show, Race, Rides, Dance Troupes, Bike Polo, Live Music, Costumes, Food and one heck of a Prom. This weekend bash is to raise money for the Bike Lab Society's Youth Programs. Be there!
More information to come.
We are seeking bicycle inspired art submissions for the art show. Interested? Contact me at bikelabsociety(at)gmail(dot)com
