Upcoming events for the Bike Night Nation

Hey all,

Don't forget this weekend is the Hops & Heifer's Bike Ride. We'll meet at the Tasty Weasel saturday October 1st at 10am.

Here's the details direct from the OB Website. Come join us.

Saturday, October 1st

Cruiser Ride- 10am-2:30pm

If you are in Denver for the GABF Great American Beer Festival then, catch the OB bus up to The Tasty Weasel from Denver (or you can meet us at the Tasty Weasel at 10am) for a cruiser bike ride out to Hops & Heifers farm.

The cost for this ride is $25 and covers all this below:

After a brewery tour and a fuel-up in the tasting room, we’ll head out on bikes. The ride to the farm is 8 miles. We’ll re-fuel with water, ice cold beer & snacks while touring the farm. Farmer Geoff will give the nitty-gritty about the benefits and importance of farm-to-table sustainable practices.

We’ll have an option for those who want to take a van back to Homemade Liquids & Solids after the first leg of the ride. Once back in Longmont, we’ll have lunch at Homemade Liquids & Solids before heading back to Denver. We’ve partnered up with Bicycle Longmont to help out with bike rentals for the day– let us know if you’ll need a bike rental.

The Last Words on Bike Night: ONE MORE!

One more, last Bike Night.

The words for this Wednesday - Let's do it one more time!

Can we pack the streets with bikes? I think so. Join us at 6:30 PM at Roosevelt Park for one more tour of Old Town. The leaves are beginning to change and Old Town has never looked better.

Last Wednesday we had approximately 15 folks ride - I think we rounded it up to 21, but nevertheless we had fun. After riding in the rain we dried off and partied with Running with Scissors at the Dickens Opera House.

We hoped to reschedule but don't think that's gonna make sense. We'll connect with Runnin' again later in the year.

Help us send 2011 out with a bang THIS Wednesday night.

See you then!

Last Bike Night?

Wow. Tonight really was one for the ages. Rain, Rain, I wish it would have gone away. But, unfortunately, not so. I asked myself - "Is this how Bike Night's best season ends - with a drizzly, cold & nasty last ride??" What d'ya think?

I didn't think so either.

So next week we'll cue it up again. We'll have one more last Bike Night - maybe we'll call it the Lastest bike night. Or, whatever.

Anyway - we had a great time with Running with Scissors and we had a great time hanging at the Dickens Opera House. If you've never seen a show there or been to a concert you owe it to yourself to check it out. It ain't the nasty pool hall you might remember.

We'll pound out the details for next week. Stay tuned.

News for Wednesday = Rock STAR!

Hey all,

This Wednesday is the last Bike Night of the season. The theme will be "Rock Star!" Come to Bike Night dressed as your favorite Rockstar and we'll blast around Old Town. We'll end the ride just before 7:30pm at the Dickens Opera House.

At 7:30pm We'll head upstairs for a special concert from "Running with Scissors". If you attended the G'Knight Ride then you know how good they are. A lot of people asked us to bring Running with Scissors back so here you go!

There WILL be a $5 cover charge. We are just as cheap as you, so we're trying to keep the costs down by spreading it around.

Bring $5 and your favorite Rockstar outfit and we'll see you on Wednesday!

FINAL Bike Night : ROCK the Bike!

Next Wednesday we’re sending the season out with a bang. I know you look forward to Wednesday and especially Bike Night, RIGHT? Well get ready for me to blow, your, MIND.

All of us at Bicycle Longmont are teaming up to bring you the best end of season blow out in HISTORY! As a matter of fact you could call it “G’Knight Lite!” We’ve gotten together with the Dickens Opera House and the band Running with Scissors.

Running with Scissors is based in the area and they are a lot of fun. If you came to the G’Knight Ride then you’ve heard Running with Scissors. They play classic rock cover tunes, originals and they ROCK!

The ride is free as always but five bucks ($5) gets you in the door! The $5 cover helps to cover the costs of the band. Anything we raise over that will be donated to the Aspen Center for Child Development (formerly the Our Center Childcare Center). We’ve donated our end of the season blowout bash cash to these guys for quite sometime.

So get your party on, light up your ride, and join us next Wednesday September 14th, 2011. We meet at 6:30pm at Roosevelt Park and roll around 6:40p. We will do a shortened trip around Old Town ending at the Dickens Opera House. Bring you bike lock.
