Lined up for the first set of slow rides
The climactic finish to the slow lap
Sprints and Assassins
Day after too. Cleaning up was sugar-coated by a day spent by the fire drinking beer, carving pumpkins, hiding under umbrellas and patting each other on the back.
All in all we estimated the money raised to be very near $2000. Good work. This money is set to be delivered to the BBP to assist them in educating people about bicycles, and how to ride them safely in our fair berg. Not all of the money is accounted for here at the house. Lots of it is floating around in space and you need to collect it, and get it down to the BBP. Don't send it to us, we have our own stuff to take down. We are doing our drop on Friday, maybe we will see you down there.

It is a benefit for the Boise Bicycle Project.
Our goal is to raise $1000.
There will be cowbell.
On Oct 2nd at 5pm we will begin doing laps around Sore Bloke's block (902 Sylvan). It is roughly a 1/4 mile, cut off from major traffic, and, well, in front of the house. The money will come from donations from friends and family, places of business, strangers, etc. Get sponsored per lap or per goal (say 25, 50, or 100 laps). Come ride and have fun. Collect your sponsored money and we will give it all to the BBP. The focus for the donation will be bicycle education and safety. Apocalyptic stuff like cars and bikes living together.
Grill, condiments and coolers will be provided.
It is BYOB & BYOBBQ/side dish.
Kids are welcome as long as you are keeping track of them. Dogs are not welcome at all.
In addition to your sponsorships we will play a game of Assassins. (Thank you Portland Velovulture!). For $1 you can buy an "assassins tag" to hang on the bottom of your seat, thereby making you an assassin and also a target. With a tag intact on your bike you may assassinate other riders by taking their tag. You may only assassinate while your tag is intact. If you make it back to the pit with your tag intact and tag(s) from other bikes, you may write your # (the one you will receive from sign-up) on it to be entered into a raffle for a brand-spanking new Reactor PBR messenger bag (as well as other swag as yet to be collected...)
All proceeds from the Assassins game go toward our goal of $1000.
We will be letting the neighbors know, and encouraging them to come out and ride, or at least show their faces in support. The course will be well marked for cars to use
EXTREME CAUTION, due to bike awesomery.
All bikes are welcome.
Fun will be had.
Laps BEGIN at 5 and will continue until we are done. (Cowbells silent by 10pm, I think)
BRING YOUR LIGHTS!
fire pit later in the evening...
Sponsorship is not mandatory. Your presence and support in any form is welcome and encouraged. This will be a fun event, don't miss out!
