It’s that time of year again to support the cycling community in NYC. I’m referring to the tireless work of our own Time’s Up. This great biking organization has put on months of free events and great bike rides in their over 20 years of operation.
It’s time for their annual Halloween Party / Fundraiser and costume ride.
HALLOWEEN BIKE RIDES AND TIME’S UP! HALLOWEEN AFTER-PARTY
Friday, October 30th
7pm- Halloween Critical Mass
8:45pm-Brooklyn Halloween Party Ride
9pm- TIME’S UP! Halloween Party
3 Floors of Party, two for dancing and music
With the sounds of the Rude Mechanical Orchestra
Looks like “Guts for Gators,” with Gina Marie of King Kog will be playing.
A strong member of the NYC bike community known as “Grandma”, was in a bad accident.
Here is a blurb from Cyclehawk
As most of you know, a good friend of ours, “grandma” was in a very bad accident on Friday. His helmet saved his life. Without getting into too much detail, he has a punctured lung, severe damage to his spine, a broken jaw and quite a few other problems right now. Our friend is in alot of pain and is currently awaiting results of an mri before surgury can begin and he can start his long uphill battle of recovery.
In order to help cover the costs of surgery and to eventually get him back on the road, we are having a silent auction. If there is anything you would be able to donate at all please do. I know alot of you guys are fantastic artists. sketches, paintings, drawings, design work, photos, bike parts, tshirts, tires, baked goods, anything really would be really really appreciated. 100% of all proceeds benefit our fallen friend. Grandma is a wonderful person, and really needs our support right now.
On the flyer below is an email address where messages will be relayed to him as well as a paypal address. Drop him a line.
