At TBAG, we want all bicycles to have properly inflated tires, well oiled chains, and lights at night. Lights are easier to buy and distribute than properly inflated tires, so I’m organizing a small team of volunteers to hand out lights. Get in touch (scrottie at biketempe.org) if you’d like to help with this or other “action” programs, such as canvasing the spokes of ASU bikes with bike safety spoke cards, and I’ll add you to the mail list.
Just when you thought you were out of that cold and biter Phoenix valley area winter season – bam! – you’re hit with another wave of cool. We’re referring to the fourth annual Tempe Bicycle Winter Games of course.
Get your body armor on and your health insurance renewed – once again we’ll be practicing the time honored brutal tradition of princess bike death races, slow ride, figure 8 races and more.
Before you brutalize yourself, at 9 a.m. join one of your favorite neighborhood bars Boulders on Broadway for their bike swap and gear meet.
Boulders will also be serving up NEW brunch items – at 20-percent off for TBAGgers – plus all-day happy hour drink specials, not to mention burger & sandwich specials.
Grab some gear, grab some beer and at noon, get your Winter Games on in the parking lot of Boulders.
Don’t forget! Join us at 7:30 p.m. in Tempe Beach Park for our annual Tweed Ride! Find both events on Facebook.
