    First Alt Bike award in Arkansas



    This month, Cruisin' In The Rock allowed bicycles to show. About 8 bikes showed up including a mountain bike, a recumbent, a tall bike and 4 cruisers. The winner of the first "Best Bicycle" award was to Roger Pennington of Bryant for his great chopped custom bicycle. It featured a wooden "gas tank", an 8 speed internal hub, built-in tail lights and a springer front end. The build quality was excellent. I think this presages a good involvement of bicycles in the Cruisin' In The Rock events.

    My bike is the Bacchetta behind the woman. Yes, I met Roger at the Cruisin. We were surprised at how nice the trophy was. That's what we get for the event being put on by the tourism department. Some of the other people said that they are giving Roger a run for his money in months to come.

    Oh yeah! I mean, if you can get a nice trophy like that, it's worth really going all out. Besides, that's what we do here for fun, right ?

    Did you invite Roger to sign up as a member?

    I told Roger, last month's winner, about Bike Forums. He's not much of an internet guy, he says.


    And here's the winner for May.



    Good to see the younger generation is getting warped early. There's actually quite a bit of work on this Schwinn Stingray. The coolest thing are the flip-down cruising pegs on the front fork.

    good to see the increased awareness that may provide, just hope they just not for show, even better to see them on the road
    When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman
