Starting this Thursday, the Bike Coop will be the start point for Thursday Night Cruiser Rides. Grab your bike, cruiser if you have it, and come join in a fun leisurely ride through Spearfish! All ages are invited and encouraged to come! The Co-op is open from 5-7 if you need to do a quick tune-up and we will try to take off on the ride right at 7. Come meet someone new and get involved with the rest of the local cycling community!
Headlamps and taillights are suggested if we ride into the dusk.
The Bike Co-op and the Spearfish Arts Center are putting together a bike art show. The purpose of the show is to raise awareness of bikes and bike culture in our area by providing new ways of seeing bicycles. This is also a fundraising event for both the Co-op and Arts Center. Art in any medium is welcome as long as it is somehow inspired by or related to bicycles or bike culture. The show is open to all ages and abilities. The Bike Art show will be held during Bike to Work Week, May 17th through 21st at the Matthews Opera House. Bike related prizes will be given for People's Choice winners, but otherwise this event will not be juried. Bike themed movies will be shown on the opening Monday night (May 17th), and Dakota Jazz Collective will be performing Friday night(May 21st). Entries can be dropped off at the Spearfish Arts Center between the 10th and 14th of May. $10 for one entry or $25 for three. Half price for under 18 years old. For more information (or any parts needed for kinetic sculptures) come by the Co-op while we're open (Sun 12-4pm, Wed and Thurs 5-8pm), or contact Clay at 645-8707.
Any bike-related art is welcome, this event is for everyone! ..so whip out those crayons and hot glue guns and get cranking!
