Last night was Cycle Cross Night at our weekly Pub Pedal where you are to ride a bike meant for the opposite gender. This night was originally called Ladies Night and was started as an excuse for the guys to bring out the ladies bikes in their collections. The name was later changed to give the women an excuse to ride something different also and to include the option of cross dressing.
I built up this bike starting with the frame and rear wheel I got from the free pile at last weekend’s swap meet. Also from the swap were the handlebars, grips and stem which were given to me and the basket which I purchased. The rest of the parts I had. I attempted to paint the fenders and chainguard I had to match.
The girl’s bikes pictured below were ridden by men and the man’s bike was ridden by a woman who won the bike in a raffle at the swap meet last Sunday. Others participated but I didn’t get photos.
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.
Thursday I attended our annual 20 Inch Night at the pub pedal. This was an unscheduled rain date as we had severe weather on the original date. Still a pretty good turn-out. I rode the 20 inch wheeled fatbike that I recently modified.
The bar owner at our usual meet-up spot led us on a ride through the bar on our little bikes.
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.
