August 10th – Zapata’s Mustache

**This ride is cancelled due to expectations of 99 degree + temperature. We’ll see you in September!**

Grab on to your handlebars & handlebar mustaches, it’s time for the yearly abuelo of all Bike in Shapes…the Tour de Shapes (aka a longer summer weekend ride). Next Sunday, we’ll start from Arriving By Bike at 11am, and trace Zapata’s Mustache out to Agrarian Ales in Coburg. Viva la peddling revolucions!


July 30th – Sneaker

Pre-pare for the total Track Town, Bike Town, Brew Town experience, all gargled together in the Sneaker shape. We’ll start at the Tap and Growler, next Wednesday, 7pm. Let’s skirt the river, jogging our bikes through Pre’s Trail, and tagging Glenwood as we u-turn back along the south bank.



June 19th – The Key of Fermentation

Stay with me here: “For centuries and centuries (and in a galaxy far far a way), brewers have searched for the secrets of the perfect beer. “If only,” they thought, “we could find the Key of Fermentation, our quest to unlock perfection will be obtained….”

Fast-forward to the Willamette Valley in 2014: this June, we will unearth the Key of Fermentation, and funny-enough, its in a shape we can bike-trace! Imagine that. Let’s meet at NE corner of Monroe Park on Thursday, June 19th, at 7:00pm, and unlock The Key of Fermentation, along the Fern Ridge Trail and concluding at Claim 52 Brewing. Thanks to Claim 52 for hosting us and staying up a little later!


May 7th – Prancing Piggy Redux

On National Bike-to-School day, BikeInShapes will be riding in the shape of old Prancing Piggy to support Safe Routes, the Eugene Springfield Safe Routes Schools program. We’ll meet at Oakshire Public House Wednesday May 7th at 7pm, jump on the bacon and be back to imbibe. $1 of every beer will go to Safe Routes. Thanks to Emma for getting this rolling. Learn more about Safe Routes at:


May is National Bike Month. There are lots of other awesome biking activities this month, including CycloFemme on Mother’s Day, Moonlight Mash on the 14th, and much more listed here:

April 16th – A Fern Between Two Ferns

It started with Michael Cera. Then Barak Obama. Now it’s BikeInShape’s turn give an ode to Zach G. in the form of a sorry excuse for a Fern. So, let’s awkwardly meander the shape of A Fern Between Two Ferns. Ninkasi is graciously hosting us, and we’ll meet there this Wednesday at 7pm.

Here’s some classic Bieber to get your amped for the ride:





March 27 – Shape, Rattle & Roll

Let’s Shape, Rattle and Roll. Or, more specifically, let’s shape in a rattle and roll this Thursday, March 27th. BikeInShapes will employ some abstract cubism referencing a baby’s rattle and a cinnamon roll, starting at 7pm from the Growler Guys (on 7th and Washington) and finishing at the Bier Stein.  Shape your Polaroid picture!


February 20th – Clyde the Ghost

Bee bee bee bee bee bee bee bee…it’s time for Pac Man BikeInShapes…this month let’s highlight Clyde the orange ghost. Meet in front of Belly Taqueria at 7pm this Thursday. Something lime and salty-rimmed may follow…
