I would like to formally announce The Night Ride. A bike "happening" to take place around mid-September. While the details of the everything have yet to be ironed out. Here is what is planned so far.
The Night RideCostume Contest:

Dust off your best 70's polyester and those leisure suits I know you have in the back of the closet. Also start pickn' out that fro and styling that sweet, sweet, 'stach.
Prizes for best outfit male & female
Best pimp & hoe
Bike Art Contest and Show Opening
Official call to artist.
All submitted work must pertain to bicycles or be made from bicycles in some form whether in part or whole. All works submitted will be available for purchase or auction.
Open to all 2D and 3D medias.
Awards an Prizes yet to be determined.
Bike Films (end destination of the night ride?)
I am working on bring some of the films (if not the whole festival) from The Bicycle FIlm Festival. More news on that as it comes.
And of course The Night Ride complete with disco balls and the finest funk to ever jump out of a woofer.
I thought I was being all creative and smarty pants with this whole night ride thing. But no, those damn Portlanders have already done it.
For a little taste of what to expect for the night ride check out the video from the Portland Night Ride.
I am in desperate need of someone with mad graphic design skills for posters, flyers and whatever else. If anyone needs to pad their book, Bike Jax would be very grateful for the help. You would be rewarded with the self-satisfaction of bragging to friends & family, "Yea, I did that." You will also receive a hardy Bike Jax thank you and a slightly creepy hug.
