Written by Boston Biker on Oct 03

From Superb:

——————

Pico Picante, Arc-En-Ciel Studio & Superb are proud to bring Boldsprints back to Good Life! Join us in this fast-paced, indoor race series to Dance, Spin & Sweat off that 9-5 grind. Superb Bicycle will be donating 2 Sprint bikes so get ready for the Rollers, Cold Beers, Prizes (from some sweet sponsors) and the Glory awaiting the winners of each evening’s event.
And if you care about music on your Wednesday night, DJ Mayhem and Dance Pajaritos will be providing the soundtrack all night long so expect all sorts of bassy treats.

And to all the Bike Couriers…don’t think we don’t see you hanging out in Winthrop Square. We are so close, you could even walk. How Scandalous would that be?

Bicycle Film Fest Wrapup: A Good Time Had By All

Written by Boston Biker on Aug 18

WOW! So this weekend was the bicycle film fest. In a word, AWESOME! Great time, great people, great movies. It was a fantastic time, and if you missed it, SHAME ON YOU.

The whole thing kicked off with a sweet party at Underground video/Revolution Cycles in JP. BoldSprints, over 200 PBR’s (mostly tall boys, all free) veggy dogs, food from veggie planet, and a whole lot of fun. Natasha took some great pictures of the event, here is a taste.

Here is some guy betting five bucks that I wont beat Phil (who is a really nice guy) at bold sprints…too bad for phil, and that guy, I ROCKED HIS ASS.

Faster Phil…faster.

The next Friday was the first round of movies at the Somerville theater, in Davis Square. It rained…a lot, but that didn’t stop a huge number of people from showing up to watch some awesome movies.

Saturday was a blast, much nicer, much sunnier, more awesome movies, there was tricks out front, valet bike parking from MassBike, and a whole host of great bike people around all day. I got to see Lucas Brunelle, got to be at the finish line as Peter Bradshaw WHOOPED everyone (he was in like a couple minutes faster than the person in second place) at the fastforward alley cat, and got to see a lot of nice bikes and meet a lot of nice people.

This was followed up by even more fun at Great Scott for the after party, and if that wasn’t enough a sweet brunch/ride on Sunday. Wow…

Like I said this was a really fun event, thanks to Seth, Dorothy, Brent and everyone else who made this a fantastic event. You guys ROCK. Also be sure to check out a lot more of Natasha’s sweet pictures here.

If you missed it this year be sure to check it out next year.
