    Boston folks: Redbones Bike Party 5/16!

    Who's there? I'm all over this!

    Link

    Monday, May 16 5 - 10 PM

    Join hundreds of bicycle commuters, couriers, racers and recreational riders for the biggest, best block party of the year! It's outside in front of Redbones and when you come you support two bicycle advocacy groups:

    New England Mountain Bike Association www.NEMBA.org
    Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition www.MassBike.org

    $15.00 per person buys you bicycle valet parking, a Redbones sandwich with all the fixin's, a beverage & 2 raffle tickets.

    From handle bars to hats, maps to memberships, our generous sponsors donate top-of-the-line gear and services to the raffle. Pump up the proceeds with your purchase of additional tickets and remember, the more you buy, the more you may win - and help NEMBA and MassBike. Extra raffle tickets: 1 for $2.00 & 3 for $5.00

    Here's a partial list of this year's sponsors:

    Wheelworks
    Hokey Spokes
    Kryptonite Locks
    Rubel BikeMaps
    Seven Cycles
    The Ride Magazine
    Vintage Etc.
    Alternative Needs Transportation
    Harpoon Beer
    Independent Fabrication
    Paramount Bicycle
    Emerging Vehicles
    Boston Pedicab
    Zipcar



    I have also heard rumors that ANT donated a commuter to the raffle. Oooooo.

    Yo.

    I'm joining a "delegation" from work which will be riding over at 5. I have a meeting there at 7, but in between times I gots nothing other than I told Mike Flanigan that I'd see him there. (Seriously, I meet the guy once when he's got like a thousand other people milling around his shop and he recognizes me on sight and remembers my name...impressive.)

    So:

    This was a blast! I ate a pulled pork, a pulled chicken, and veggie kebab.

    Saw Trevor there, and when Trevor had to leave, he gave me his raffle tickets to hold for him, and check while they were calling the numbers.

    Of course I win nothing.

    Trevor, however, won a free one year membership to Zipcar, a $50 gift certificate to Belmont Wheelworks, and F-IN mountain bike (the 2nd largest prize)!

    That ******* is lucky I wasn't feeling greedy!

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention: apparently one Mr. Pete Ford works at the museum. He was telling me tonight that his brother, Adam, is gunning for gold in NYC in July.

    Small world and all that.
