In case you still haven't heard..

Bury Your Bike II is coming up fast!! As in two weekends!!

also, there's two good bike forums up and running that art jacksonville centric.

One has only recently been started by a couple of UNF kids. Their purpose is to network with other bikers in the area, and to get some good rides and maybe in and out of town events happening. I think this is great as we know all too well that kids on bikes get bad reps. Especially, by people who are quick to label every person on a fixed gear a hipster or some kind of elitist. This can be rather infuriating, when really how does it matter? People. are. biking. How can you hate on somebody who is out there getting exercising and doing something that they love? How does it affect you if one person wants to nail down a trick while another wants to build the biggest fucking tall bike of all time?

Sorry, anyways props to people out there trying to network in this city where its so easy to criticize, check out the forum at http://904fixed.proboards.com/

the other forum is located at http://bikejax.forumotion.net/ and is a bit more broader in scope but still very Jacksonville pumped

alright big things coming up this weekend/week for the bike and community lover in you

first off, here's that flyer I promised you ----->

second, this Saturday marks the start of the Riverside Arts Market. With the beginning of this weekly cultural amazingness, BikeJax will be hosting a bike valet service, check out what he's got planned here.

Then, Sunday we're going to have a litte bar-b-que for all of us who weren't able to attend Slaugterama this year (which by the way, wish good times on the kids that are reppin' us in Richmond this weekend). But come out Sunday afternoon from 2o'clock and on we'll be cooking some delic food and playing bike polo.

If you can't make it Sunday for polo, we'll be having our second beginner night Tuesday startin' at 7.

And then--oh my so many events this week--we'll be having a movie night Wednesday featuring the Triplets of Belleville. Movie starts at 8:30, come earlier for an open workshop 6:30 to movie time.
