“Fe” your lab coat and “O” your tires as we geek out to the Periodic Table shape. We’ll start from The Bier Stein this Wednesday at 7:45pm. If it’s too crowded afterward, we’ll migrate over to The High St. Cafe. Be there or be [an element] square!
Let’s honor Black History month by meeting at the Rosa Parks statue outside the Eugene LTD Bus Station on 10th & Olive.

Rubberducky, you’re the one. In honor of our other number one Duckies, this month it’s time to swish and swash with good old Rubberducky (embedded map). But this plastic variety is a fibbing feathered alternative with a bill as long as our favorite wooden marionette’s nose. So don’t trust everything you hear as we bikeinshapes, Tuesday, November 9th. We’ll depart from Ninkasi Brewing Company at 7:30pm, returning for pint at the tail end. Friends and newcomers welcome!
FYI: We’ll be taking December off for the holidays, but be ready to bikeinshapes around Eugene in 2011!
Fall has come, and it’s time to see who the true rain or shine bikeinshapers are. Let’s joystick around the most ubiquitously dangerous villain of arcade history to kick off Halloween week. We’ll meet outside the Jackalope Lounge (on Willamette St. adjacent to the Amtrak station) at 7pm. Micros are $2.50 on Tuesdays.
Who’s got big ears, a crackly little voice and a spiked hairdo? This Thursday, it’s time to trace the face of The Little Rascals’ Alfalfa. We’ll meet outside of the Ninkasi Brewing Company’s tasting room in the Whitaker at 7pm. Also, we’re hoppy to announce Ninkasi is offering our group discounts on pints. Thanks Ninkasi!
What can we do with the string of streets named after presidents? Turn them into needles of a comb! Oh yes, in two weeks please join us for the “Presidential Comb” BikeInShapes ride.

Let’s meet this Thursday at 7pm at Sam Bond’s on Blair for the June Bike in Shapes. Everyone is welcome. We’ll head up to the Willamette River Biking path and trace the river and “tongue” until the bridge near Beltline.Then we will make a little loop, referencing the “fly” before making our way back on the River Road bank of the river. Visit the Calendar page for a map of the route.
Sam Bond’s will be hosting a couple bands, with a $5 cover starting at 9pm. We should return by 8pm at the latest, giving us ample time for a pre-cover beverage. For those interested, here are the bands’ Myspace pages: One Horse Shy and Brown Chicken Brown Cow String Band. In all, should be a bow chicka bow wow evening!
