Spring Has Sprung! And the Bunny Will Hop! First Friday ArtRide Ventura April 6, 2012

Join us for the Bunny Hop! Hop on your bike in your bunny ears and your easter best for the April ArtRide around town!

We meet at 5:30pm around the fountain on the Ventura Beach promenade by the parking garage and Aloha (where you can get your bunny ears a bit fuzzier! Bet we an get some drink specials for wily wabbits!) We’ll take photos and visit the show at the Artists Union and roll off into the sunset sometime between 6 and 6:30pm. We usually lap Main and cruise Ventura Avenue during this leisurely, fun, family friendly and FREE ride!

Bring your own cup for libations! Decorate and light your bike!

Please invite your friends! You can download a full size Bunnyhop pdf flyer and the Bunnyhop 4 up flyer here.

Save the date! We’re planning a second Bunny Hop on Sunday April 15–escape from the tax man! Meet at 11am at the Jolly Oyster, ride along the Beach and River Bike Paths to Old Creek Ranch and Vino V wineries for picnic, poetry, egg hunt, and tasting! More details to follow!


Jelly for President & Active Transportation!

Delightful new song from the Ditty Bops supporting Jelly, the first stuffed koala to run for president in 2012.

Jelly says: “Check out my Official music Video for the hit song “Koalas in a Tree”. Don’t be fooled by imposter kopy kats. This video was made by and for koalas, friends of koalas, and all my constituents. Enjoy! And if you like it don’t forget to buy my new album featuring me, Jelly and my band of Guys called, “Jelly for President-Yes We Jam”

Perhaps we should do a “Jelly for President” ArtRide in November! See you on the next First Friday ArtRide–April’s Bunny Hop! Plans afoot to do a Bunny Hop ArtRide from the Jolly Oyster to Old Creek Ranch Winery Sunday April 15! More details soon!

PS Don’t you just love the term “active transportation”??? So much better than the clunky and somewhat derogatory “alternative transportation!” I mean, alternative to what? More on this in a blog post soon, I bet! Subscribe so you don’t miss another word–or another ride!! (You know you want to, so do it! Plus it makes me feel good to know you love me enough to want me in your inbox…)

Join Ventura St Pat’s Day Parade on Your Bike & Support Safe Routes to School

Here’s an opportunity to promote Safe Routes to Schools in partnership with Supervisor Bennett in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Sat. March 17. The San Buenaventura ArtRiders Bicycle and Social Club did two Tweed and Leprechaun rides last year and we had a blast as you can see here.
You can join as a pedestrian or a cyclist. Seek out #28 near the Mission parking lot or on Santa Clara street at 9:30am and gather to wait for the parade to begin. Supervisor Bennett will be walking.
It’s predicted to RAIN cats, dogs, and leprechauns so be prepared. It will have an even greater impact if you show up in the weather ready to ride!
PS Our next ArtRide is the Bunny Hop on the First Friday in April. Rumor has it the Goodwill downtown has ears for 49 cents!

Here’s how to get your gown on for this Friday’s Brides Ride–links and directions on how to convert your bridal gown to fit you as well as more about the Brides of March.

The Brides of March from the SF Cacophony Society are here to the rescue to assist you in your preparations for the March 5 First Friday ArtRide aka the Brides of March Brides Ride.

Learn how to convert your thrift store prize into a Brides Ride ready fashion statement! It’s easy, it’s fun and it will make you feel oh so special! Once you have your dress and a white sweatshirt, there are only two easy steps to hack your dress into shape–your shape that is.

The 12th Annual Brides of March in San Francisco takes place in 2010 on March 13.

LA will hold a Brides of March as will other major centers of cultural cacophony like Portland and Austin. Or do a Brides of March in a City near you! All you need is another bride and it quickly becomes cacophonous…
