April 16th – A Fern Between Two Ferns

It started with Michael Cera. Then Barak Obama. Now it’s BikeInShape’s turn give an ode to Zach G. in the form of a sorry excuse for a Fern. So, let’s awkwardly meander the shape of A Fern Between Two Ferns. Ninkasi is graciously hosting us, and we’ll meet there this Wednesday at 7pm.

Here’s some classic Bieber to get your amped for the ride:






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!

November 9th – Rubberducky

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!
