Bicycle Benefits and New Sunday Rides

Today the "Pedal Punks Team" did an awesome job in the Bicycle Benefits scavenger hunt coming in second place and winning the coveted Sweet Potato Trophy of Second Placedness. If you don't know about Bicycle Benefits check out they're website It's an awesome organization that gives you some sweet discounts at local businesses just for riding your bike and slapping a sticker on your helmet.

Second order of business:
Due to a renewed interest in Bikes and Beer (honestly, how do you ever lose interest in either of these things), we are going to continue our tradition of Sunday rides but we will conclude the rides with a drink and the fabulous and cycle friendly Bywater on Riverside. We'll have our first official 2011 scheduled ride on Sunday the 23rd at 4:30 unless we get some requests to do it earlier. We'll continue rides on every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month instead of weekly rides. That'll give me time to plan rides and keep the rides fresh. Hope to see you guys next Sunday. Great job team.



Here are some pics from the ride

Here is a video of a few tasks we had to perform
We had to gather at least 4 people with different eye colors and make them perform a song in front of the Pack Square Obelisk and the pig had to make it into the video too for some reason.
