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.
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.
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.
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.
