March 29th, Eugene – Chuck Norris Redux

Let’s open a can of…Chuck Norris Redux, the shape. We’ll meet at the Rennie’s Landing at 7pm this Thursday, March 29th, and strut from there. In honor of this ride, here’s a few Chuck Norris Bike Facts you may not know:

  • When Chuck Norris rides bicycles, cars use the sidewalk.
  • Chuck Norris’ bicycle doesn’t have a handle bar, it has a fist-le bar.
  • Light is jealous of the speed of Chuck Norris’ single speed.

June 20th – Triceratops

BikeInShapes is turning three years old! (Those terrible-twos were something else). To celebrate, let’s ride in the shape of our favorite three-horned friend, a triceratops. And after a triceratops ride, there’s pretty much only one beer we can return to: Ninkasi’s “Tricerahops.”

So dust off your tricycle for the triceratops on Thursday, June 20th leaving Ninkasi at 7pm. Any friends of Eugene-Springfield are welcome! Thanks to our friends at Ninkasi for hosting us!
