Remember when simple things like a blanket suddenly made you a flight-worthy avenger or your mom’s high-heeled shoes and a smear of lipstick made you a fearful queen? For one night in Tempe, return to the world of make believe. Don your superhero snow-gloves that allow you to smash your opponents, wield your mighty vacuum hose that allows you to suck out the souls of your victims, this September marks the homemade heroes Second Saturday ride.
Though Batman may be a badass and Storm has the ability to control the atmosphere, this Sept. 8, we’re more interested in your own home-spun version of heroism. Whether you’re SuperJeff who, with the help of his special armor made out of couch cushions, can crush his opponents, or Savage Sarah who’s known for her cave-woman-esque tactics of smashing her enemies heads in with a large stone, we want to know what powers you have within. And what odd things you can bind together with ducttape to make you appear bigger and better than life.
Meet your fellow powerful heroes and villains at Tempe Beach Park, the ride on to avenge your thirst for delicious craft brews in the fine establishments of Tempe. All power levels (on the bike and otherwise) welcome.
Where: Meet at Tempe Beach Park entrance: the northwest corner of Rio Salado Parkway and Mill Avenue in Tempe
