Bikestravaganza 2010


Hey Spearfish Cycling Community!
Tuesday August 24th The Off the Chainring tour is coming to the Co-op. Join us for an hour long Cruiser Ride at the Co-op at 5:45 followed by homemde rootbeer and homemade ice cream floats. BRING YOUR OWN MUG!!! Then the fun begins: Joe Biel, founder of Microcosm Publishing (http://www.microcosmpublishing.com/) will show bike videos and and discuss how to impact transportation infrastructure in Spearfish. Elly Blue will have a slide show showing examples of fantastic Portland biking and a history of how it became on of the best places to bike in the country. And Dave Roche will read stories from his published and upcoming works, which may deal some with biking but also substitute teaching, dumpster diving and the effects of both on his health.
We want this event to inspire discussion and Ideas on how to make Spearfish a better place to bike? So bring your input as well as the mug.
Hopefully we will have a prototype of a Spearfish Bike Map to be reviewed and improved.
We know it's on a weeknight so the whole Bikestravaganza should be over a little after nine. $3-$10 sliding scale at the door. This means pay what you can, no one turned away for lack of funds.

Here's a little promo video for the event, just in case you prefer your information not to be text but instead moving and talking with background music.
