Props to the Third Coast Bicycle Festival
Well done to the organizers of the Third Coast Bicycle Festival. It was great to see so many people with their bicycles, of all shapes, sizes, bells and whistles riding around town. Fun events, spread over many interests. Good work. Cheers!
Bruce Bodjack, a member of the Cherry Capital Cycling Club took some stills at the Bicycle Festival Fashion Show and has kindly posted them on his Flickr page. To the right is the honorable white van, decked out in TCBF garb.
I missed out on a lot of the events, but look forward to scheduling it into my August next year. August is the new July, I might as well embrace it. In fact, if MyWHaT is still around I may have to host some events…ideas?
I have three for you to consider:
- A slow bicycle race? More of a physics experiment than a race.
- A bicycle rack contest? we can get beyond the functional upside down “U”, can’t we?
- A DIY Street Improvement Sprint? No link for this one, but there might be a way to make it legal.
What do you think? What event(s) pops out for you?
The first is a quick grab at last week’s fashion show ride around the ‘gut’. Anytime a group of riders can joyfully command the street, it’s hard not to smile.
Joel Gaff, one of the organizers of the week, has a couple of videos online from races during the week. Here’s the Wayne Hill gut buster. He has another video of the Cherry-Roubaix Street Sprints 2010…holy crap they are fast!
Oh, and TCBF. Thanks again for The Cranky. How embarrassing.
