A Few iPhone Photos from June’s ArtRide “Get Lei’d”

June’s First Friday ArtRide with the San Buenaventura ArtRiders Bicycle & Social Club had a smaller than usual turnout but we had fun anyway and finished up the evening with beers and food at Anacapa Brewery which gave anyone with a lei a generous discount.

Do you see it there on the back of my pink bikergo, between me in pink and purple and the small boy in the grass skirt?

How To Prepare Your Wedding Dress for the Brides Ride March 5

Learn how to convert your thrift store prize into a Brides Ride ready fashion statement that you can wear on March 5 First Friday ArtRide aka the Brides of March Brides Ride.

It takes only two easy steps to hack your thrift store find into shape–your shape! Keep in mind you’ll be on a bicycle so you might want to hack it shorter unless you have a chainguard like I do on my bikergo.

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.

Hold a Brides of March in a City near you! All you need is another bride and a bottle of champagne and it quickly becomes cacophonous!

Once you’ve got your dress on and your bike ready (remember lights!), join us from 5-5:30pm at Ventura’s City Hall with champagne in your basket! From City Hall, we’ll ride down California Street to the ocean for photos and drinks at Aloha and to visit the Artists Union Gallery. At 6pm, we’ll take a romantic jaunt along the sea on the Ventura Promenade and the bicycle path along the Ventura River, then we’ll ride up and down Main visiting galleries and ending up at Bell Arts Factory 432 N. Ventura Avenue for the reception with food and beer by Anacapa. Bring your own cup and money to donate to the bride and groom!
