Bike Prom: Party of 35 now seating!

Tomorrow is Bike Prom and the kick off to Oktoberfest in BIKEmont! Here's your weekend itinerary and how tomorrow will shake out!

Lunch:  Skip lunch and anything fizzy you don't want to be bloated for the big event. Also - Get over to Jesters Theater to get your costume, errr. Tux.

3pm - Meet up at the Tasty Weasel for a Bike Parade!

Our friends at Left Hand Brewing, and Bicycle Longmont built a ceremonial bike trailer to haul the "Golden Keg". The Golden Keg will depart Oskar Blues' Tasty Weasel at 3pm, making it's way to Left Hand Brewery, the Pumphouse and on to Roosevelt Park where Mayor Coombs will tap the Golden Keg at 4pm. This tapping is the opening salvo to the 2012 Oktoberfest!

The Golden Keg's Chariot!
At about 5pm we'll duck back to the Weasel to get ready for Pre-Prom (6 - 7:30pm) and the Grand March (ride) to Roosevelt Park.

Bicycle Longmont will have the Bike Valet going strong tomorrow night and Saturday evening - you won't need to worry about your ride.

The Longmont YMCA has Kid-toberfest going on Friday night, too. This is the perfect opportunity to get out and have fun with out the nerve racking babysitter bill dampening your fun. The YMCA will have bike art (the kids will ride the Y's Bikes through paint, then over paper!), 6' inflatable balls, swimming and games. They will also provide healthy snacks for the kids too!

Call the Longmont YMCA to get your child signed up.

Bike Prom - September 28th. Make Plans

Longmont is going to be hoppin' next weekend September 28th & 29th. Oktoberfest rolls into town and  Bicycle Longmont is planning some formal fun to go along with it. Start shoppin' for that tacky prom dress, or maybe it's time to bust out one of those bridesmaid dresses! Either way - meet us at the Tasty Weasel at 7pm for Pre-Prom. Have a drink and we'll roll out to Roosevelt Park for Hey Lady and take in some Oktoberfest goodness.

The Ride is free but Bicycle Longmont hopes you'll make a $10 donation to the Kid's Holiday Bike Program, too. Check the poster below.

Tonight is the LAST Bike Night......

For 2012.
Tonight we'll host our first ever "Fall Formal" ride. Come dressed in whatever Formal means to you. I'll be in my best Colorado Tuxedo.

Our route tonight will begin at Roosevelt Park where we will gather at 6:30pm and travel the standard Old Town Route. We'll head West to Sunset then through an abreviated East side loop ending at Abondanza's. If you can't join us for the ride please join us at Abondanza's patio off the alley.

Thanks for a great, great, 2012 Bike Night Season!

September = Great Nights for Bike Night

Well, here we are - September. 3 Bike Night's until the season ends on September 19th. After that it's all over until next Spring. Come out and join us this week. We will keep it real, in Old Town.

On the 12th we'll venture one last time to the Greenway and Lefthand brewery.

The Last Bike Night will be a fundraiser for the Kid's Holiday Bike Program. We're going to do a version of Bike Prom so come dressed in whatever formal wear you can find. If you have a favorite Prom song, let me know and I"ll create a playlist for the 19th!

Catch you this Wednesday at 6:30pm at Roosevelt Park!
