Bikes & Beats - Event Tonight in SF

On Friday, November 9th, Bikes & Beats resurfaces after a brief hiatus to facilitate a fundraising fete for the newly-incorporated 501(c)3, San Francisco Yellow Bike Project. The B&B / SFYBP combo will take over the larger hall of the newly renovated Baobab Village (formerly Bollyhood Cafe) in the Mission with party-rocking DJ's (and cyclists) PARTY BEN (House Nation, Live 105.1FM) and MATT HAZE (Beats for Lunch, Silent Frisco) and the debut headlining performance of SKINS & NEEDLES, a live collaboration between DJ ZEPH (of Zeph & Azeem and the infamous Oakland Faders turntablist crew) and Crown City Rockers drummer, MAX MCVEETY.

Also on tap for the night are:

The return of SFYBP's massive photobooth
Rubber-burning door prizes including two complete BIKES!
Make-your-own spoke card art station
Free secure bike parking
All profits from the event will be donated to the San Francisco Yellow Bike Project and towards the medical fund for local bicycle hero Chuey Munkanta.

$10 suggested donation.

I will be there valet bike parking between 10-midnight. Come say hi!


Bike Camping and Touring

My bikey filmmaker friend Laura Lukitsch took the plunge into bike camping, as many of my other friends (like CTX from CYLRAB) have in the past year, and documented her experience like like any good filmmaker would. Check out her fun ABC's of bike camping:

One of the reasons I purchased my Surly Cross Check was so I could join my friends on some bike camping/touring trips in the near future. But Laura shows us that you don't need any special kind of bike - you can hop on the one you got, grab a map and go!

OR, maybe one day you can live the dream of an entire bike touring vacation. This gorgeous video of Oregon's Scenic Bikeways dishes out some juicy travel inspiration.

Makes me want to hop on Amtrak with Seabiscuit and go on a road trip! Shall we?


Mark Your Calendar - Pedal Savvy's Bike Fashion Show

The 3rd annual Pedal Savvy bicycle fashion show taking place at the Cow Palace November 10th and 11th 2012 at 1:00 pm will feature models styled to look fantastic on and off a bike through the ever changing climates faced on the daily ride. Models will be rolling down the "bikeway" exhibiting a range of clothing and gear from bike specific brands to vintage and designer, all on sleek sexy bicycles.

Last year's event was over-the-top fashionable and fun, so I'm expecting Miss Gwen to outdo herself with the hottest and freshest looks once again. And let's hope Mr. Peanut makes another appearance too.
