January 25th – Burt’s Brow

Get out your unicycle (or bicycle) because it’s time to ride the uni-brow of uni-brows. That’s right, let’s trace Ernie’s best friend’s eye brow. We’ll meet this Monday, January 25th at The Cannery at 7pm. As you can see, Burt means business–be there or be rectangle.

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.

October 29th – Pugakeet

Ever wonder what a parakeet dressed as pug looks like? Or for that matter, how a pug dressed in parakeet suit for Halloween appears? Well, the answer is probably not in this shape. :) Let’s support LiveMove’s Oakshire Fundraiser to get a bike counter installed on 13th & Kincaid. It’s a pricey ambition, so why not throw down a couple pints to move the needle. We’ll meet at Oakshire at 7pm, this Wednesday and ride in the shape of the Pugakeet!
