Aldan sent this over today:
Single cyclists will have a chance to meet other bike lovers on Tuesday, August 9th at Hub and Bespoke’s “Slow Ride Speed Date” event in Fremont. Participants will take 3-minute bike rides with members of the opposite sex on a pre-set path through the neighborhood. Riders will note the individuals they are interested in, and Hub and Bespoke will later notify each person of any matches.
“This event offers a chance for bike-riding singles to meet people with similar interests, based on the premise that cyclists tend to have many other values in common,” says Aldan Shank, co-founder of Hub and Bespoke.
Anyone interested in participating should email firstname.lastname@example.org. Spots are limited, and a bike is required. The event will start at 5:45pm at the Hub and Bespoke shop (513 N 36th St) and will conclude with a friendly mixer at a neighborhood venue. More details available on the Hub and Bespoke blog (hubandbespoke.wordpress.com).
Wednesday August 3rd. 7pm at Satellite Coffee
If you’ve never heard of the Dead Baby Downhill- you’ve been missing out on a part of Seattle bike culture like none other. Beer drinkin’, bike ridin’, hell raisin’…. Freak bikes, tall bike jousting, live music, and just a fantastic time all around.
It’s simple really. Meet at a bar at the top of a hill- race to the bottom where the biggest bike party on the west coast takes place. Have fun all night long. There is also a messenger alleycat race- that is way harder than I am…
Check the DB website for more info.
And just so you know- the Shipwreck Tavern is located at 4210 Southwest Admiral Way in West Seattle. It is a bar- so under 21’ers can’t get in- sorry. The race is open to all ages, but once again- no one under 21 gets to whet their appetite with tasty beers procured by the Dead Baby Bike Club.
Ride your bike there, and be safe.
*No babies were harmed in the promotion of this event.

The third Tour de Watertower is a wrap! I’ll post a full write up come Monday or so, but thought I’d share the raw feed from the computer. A little more work and I could’ve streamed the results for those following along at home (or on boat), but hey. Next year.
And now onto the results:

I have a few times for those of you that came in after the comp was packed, will update soon.
Thanks to all the folks that raced, helped, donated prizes, and hosted us. I will thank you properly come next week, but I hear there is a party to get to.
Loving the work here. Definitely the finest engraving details I’ve seen to date.
It’s happened already, but this edit is awesome.

After you’ve raced your little heart out- its time to get on over to the Rubber Side Down polo party.
Starting at 7pm and going into the wee hours- there will be bands, beer, a DJ, bike games. It’s going to be a real hoot. In addition to polo kids just loving to party for the hell of it- this party will benefit 206 POLO and help raise funds to make the 2011 World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships (which will take place in Seattle) even more awesome that it’s bound to be.
See you in the streets!
