New Years Day Potluck Dinner And Ride

Our bike club’s annual New Year’s day get-together. We met at our host’s house where we ate and socialized before going on a short ride. Lots of great food. I made butternut squash soup.
Happy New Year!

Not our host’s house but a near-by university building.

Hallowheelie 2016

Last night was our 10th annual Halloween pub pedal known as Hallowheelie. Such a fun and creative bunch.

Our friend Dan as the Phantom of the Opera with the pipe organ mounted on his bike.

Poster I put together for the event.

Tank Bike Night

Last night was Tank Bike Night at our Thursday Night Pub Pedal. A good turn-out of cool old factory tank bikes plus some great custom tanks. You can probably guess which one was mine.

Woody Night

Last night was Woody Night at the Thursday Night Pub Pedal where the idea was to incorporate wood in to your bike. There was some really nice craftsmanship but I of course went the cheezy route with the 2×4.

St Patrick’s Parade & Pub Pedal

Another great St Patrick’s celebration with the bike club. As always I rode the Bronco Bike in the parade. Following the parade we rode with the gang for food and beverages.

Be My VELOntine Ride

« 1 of 49 »

Yesterday we attended our club”s first Be My VELOntine ride. We met up at for food and drink and deposited valentines and candy into decorated boxes we had attached to our bikes. We then rode to another bar where we emptied the contents of our boxes to see what we had gotten. It was a really fun time and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

Bike Walk Wichita Open House

Historic "rainbow bridge" getting resurfaced.

Yesterday a group of us met up and rode to the opening house of Bike Walk Wichita which is a biking and walking advocacy group in the big city.

Klunker Night

This past Thursday was Klunker Night at the Thursday Night Pub Pedal.

First up is the bike I built up for the occasion based on a 51 Schwinn straight-bar frame.

Photos I took of a few of the bikes there. If you didn”t have a “klunker” you were encouraged to ride a mtb or other off-road bike.

Rollin On Twenties

Last night I participated in our groups 20 Inch Night where you are encouraged to ride a bike with 20″ wheels or smaller. This gives those with muscle bikes, old school BMX or lowriders in their collections a reason to get them out and ride them. Some even build custom bikes which is what I did this year.

This is what I came up with.

Based on a BMX frame but made taller to stretch my legs out.

Below are a few of the photos I took of the evening. Many more photos here.

At our usual meet-up place.
