Open Streets ICT

The big city held it’s first Open Streets event yesterday. 4 miles of the city’s east/west main street was closed to motor vehicle traffic. We met up with friends from our bike club at our usual meeting place which was at one end. From there we rode to the other end and back with stops along the way for food and beverage. I rode the some what tall bike which everyone seemed to enjoy. I even made special stops to demonstrate how I get on and off whenever someone would ask.

Freaks And Rats

Last Thursday was Freaks And Rats Night at our weekly pub pedal. My idea for this theme night was to get participants to ride freaky or ratty bikes. That of course leaves a lot up to interpretation. I rode the tall bike.

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.

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.

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.
