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!

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!
