Tomorrow is Livestrong day, a national day of awareness and fundraising for the Lance Armstrong Foundation and the fight against cancer.

In Central Park,

LIVESTRONG Central Park Ride
October 02, 2009
6:00pm until 7:00pm
Central Park Engineer’s Gate (East 90th St. & 5th Ave)
1078 5th Ave
New York , NY
Show your true colors by wearing yellow and cycling to raise cancer awareness in this hour-long ride in Central Park. Pace will be moderate and open to all–from the occasional weekend rider to the serious cyclist. We will ride the first mile together to show solidarity for the cause, and then, if necessary, break into fast, moderate, and “relaxed” paced groups. Interested in making a donation to the cause? Bring checks payable to LIVESTRONG. (Donation not required to join event.) Don’t forget to wear yellow and LIVESTRONG!

Info from www.livestrongaction.org/node/191031

Lance is forming a new team sponsored by Radioshack so in 6,000 stores there will be opportunities to make a donation.

Bike Comedy: “Don’t Honk at Me!”-UCB Theatre

I got invited to bicycle themed comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater:

Ryan Karel’s
“Don’t Honk At Me!”

(from the site)
Rambo said that to survive a war you gotta become war. If that war is living in a city, then you have to get on a bike. It’s us versus them, people versus cars, man versus machine. Ryan Karels takes you through the looking glass and into the bike lane. This show is not a musical.

October shows are Wednesday the 7th and 14th at 8 pm.
More info: http://newyork.ucbtheatre.com/shows/2151

Here’s a taste:

Come see what happened in Pittsburgh, G20 protests.

To follow up on my rant about the G20 protests,
come see a 30 minute documentary of what went on.

Dodging sound cannons, gone to interbike.

The guys over at urbanvelo.org were wise to get out of there home town of Pittsburgh last weekend. The world’s leaders were gathered for the G20 summit and felt so threatened by a few people demonstrating these silly little things like their constitutional rights that they:
Called in 4000 police officers, used pepper spray, tear gas and sound cannons on people who weren’t even near the delegates.

If you want to protest in America these day’s under the supposed “Hope” and “Change” president Obama, you can expect tactics and behavior like this form law enforcement:

Police dressed in Camoflauge randomly kidnapping you:

Using you for a trophy photo:
TrophyPicture(Video of this has been removed from Youtube because of police embarrassment)

and if there aren’t any demonstrators willing to riot…the cops will dress up like them and start the riots themselves:

Videos posted on I witness video

Hmmm, where else do we see behavior like this?

Funny how the teabaggers in DC and at townhall meetings weren’t harassed with firearms at their sides and holding signs like this:obama hitler
Ah yes the first amendment.

Anyway, so Urbanvelo went to Interbike in Las Vegas and had some really amazing coverage of the bicycle industry’s largest convention:

I hope Brad and Jeff had a little time for fun like it appears my man Steve did from all hail the black market.

Be on the look out for some sweet new t-shirts coming out:

A quick wrap up on Bikeshorts, last night.

Bikeshorts is a screening night here in NYC, hosted by Ken Stanek, where people submit short movies about bikes and people cheer on there favorite so one lucky film makers can win $100.00.

Here is a quick report of last nights action by Ken himself:

“There were 17 films, between 30 seconds and 5 minutes long. 112 people came out. DBA hooked up a drink special for us afterwards. My Mom was there. Everyone heckled me to take off my shirt. I never did. The winning film was “Cycle Of Love”, a film about a young tricycle infatuated with a hot, pink track bike – by Brittlee Bowman and Cat Marshall. It’s not online anywhere because they’re going to submit it to the BFF in the spring. Which is awesome – that’s what Bike Shorts was intended for. “
