    I was about to start a new thread to ask a question, but figured this thread was a good start. Who on here is planning on decorating and/or riding their bike in any parades this weekend? I am going to see about jumping into an annual parade that has been happening in a neighborhood for years and years, and encourages decorated bikes. Got some dollar store items as well as some things I had laying around that will go on my beach cruiser. Will post pictures when it is done, and hopefully from the parade.

    Just finished decorating, and not a moment too soon. Supposed to hit around 115 degrees outside today, and was around 100 when I finished




    I am pleased with the end result, can't wait for the ride.

    Just got back from the parade. Didn't get any pictures (sorry, wasn't thinking about it), but I did place 3rd in the decorated bike category.

    Was that big torch thing meant to fall over at the end of the video?

    It looked like bicycle jousting to me, so yeah, try to knock down the other rider. (and his torch) Fun for some I suppose.

    Good job on the decorating e-man. I wanted to do one for the parade this year but never got to it. I did see some kids attaching smoke bombs to their bikes and then fly down a large hill though. Very light winds so it left a nice trail.
