2011 West Coast Uninvitational

The West Side Invite took place in Portland for the last time in 2010.  10 years of shenanigans, the original organizers decided to put it to an end- and for whatever reason, didn’t want the name to continue on.  So being crafty as they are- Vancouver BC, who were eager to host the WSI after it came to Seattle in 2009 (the only other city to host the WSI) is in the planning stages of the WEST COAST UNINVITATIONAL.  It will take place Memorial Day weekend, May 27-30, 2011 in Vancouver BC.

The folks up in Vancouver have a lot of creativity and passion for bikes, as well as being adept at walking the razors edge of good times vs. total shit show.  I always enjoy myself when visiting and have met some stellar people there. Hopefully they’ll have something going at Burnaby (it has an inflatable ceiling!)

A few things to remember:

  • Get your passport (or enhanced ID)
  • stop at Duty Free to buy liquor on your way north (Canada booze prices are stupid expensive)
  • Bring your bike
  • Don’t bring handguns
  • Make sure that you can cross the border- if you have had trouble with the law in the past, they may not let you in…
  • Don’t forget your passport- it is another country…
