April 25 – Loch Ness Monster Redux

Come wade in the water with the mythical lake monster,  “Nessie” the Loch Ness Monster. The last known sighting of this plesiosaurs-like creature was in Scotland in 1933, but now again, we’re shaping it. We’ll meet this Thursday at 7pm at WildCraft Cider Works (232 Lincoln).

April 30th – Frog’s Tongue and Fly

Spring is here and the river calls. We’re beginning our countdown to Bike in Shapes’ 5th birthday in June. It seems like the perfect time to dig up, the shape that started it all: the OG, the Frog’s Tongue and Fly. That’s right, the origins of Bike in Shapes can be traced to a ride following a “tongue” that flows along the Willamette only to meet an industrial plant of a “fly” past the Knickerbocker Bridge.This bizarre whim set in motion these past five years of pomp and absurdity. So, let’s dust off the Tongue, and meet at Sam Bond’s Garage this Thursday at 7pm, ride the river, and return in ample time for their 90’s night.

Come this Thursday and be prepared to vote your favorite all-time shape as a finalist for the June 17th Anniversary ride.
