We are super stoked that Back Ally Bike Repair is turning two years old! Ben is throwing a like shin-dig. Check out the Birfday Bike-athalon and Pedal Party on Saturday, then hit up the Bike Expo on Sunday, hungover. Sounds like a recipe for a rad Seattle bike weekend to me.
Another year of the Seattle Bike Expo means another year of the Pedal Party- our fourth year running.
This year is going to benefit the organization of the North American Cycle Courier Championships which take place in Seattle this July.
- It’s a 21+ event & free to attend.
- We’ll be partying at the Belltown Underground (2407 1st Ave in Belltown)
- Door are at 8pm
- There will be DJ’s for dancing and merry making.
- There will be 2 person mini-bike relay races (with a special “Wheelers and Dealers” category for shop employees and industry folks, as well as a category for the rest of us)
Happy birthday to Cadel Evans, 2011 Tour de France Champion and strong anti-doping advocate. With all the buzz of doping in the sport of cycling over the last few years it is refreshing to remember there are still some clean riders with integrity out there, such as this Valentines Day born champion.
Evans often reminds me that being fast isn’t always pretty with an array of awkward faces he is known for. It is his birthday though, so here is a nice photo of Evans and his wife with something awful on her head.
Ernesto Colnago was born February 9th, 75 years ago. Happy Birthday to a builder that brought about one of the most impressive “collabs” that will ever be. The Colnago Ferrari.
