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…)

Tonight after dinner we’re riding our bikes down to hear REO Speedwagon. While never one of my favorite “hair” bands, it’s fun, it’s free, it’s by the beach and I can sing along with all the lyrics of the songs that were on the … Read More

Bike Ride to Good Vibrations at Ventura Fair

Not all of us rode to the Fair and went inside to hear Pat Benatar on Friday night.

In fact, Daniel, Matt and a few others rode to the beach where they said they could hear great and even see the concert on the jumbotron!

We were already planning on riding over tonight to hear the Beach Boys but now we’re even more stoked about it!

You can meet us on the beach at Surfer’s Point outside the Ventura County Fair grounds for a picnic with our kids while we listen and dance to The Beach Boys who are performing in the Grand Stand.

Or ride with us from midtown (or points east)! If you need to, you can park your car at the city of Ventura San Jon Road maintenance yard at 7pm (for free!) and ride with us down San Jon and along the beach. Read on for more details and a list of other Fair Grandstand entertainment.

The Ventura County Fair every year offers “free” Grandstand Entertainment with your $12 paid admission to the Fair! But even better, if you’ve had your fill of the fair and you don’t want to pay $12 just for the “free” entertainment, you can ride your bike along the beach bike trail and find a spot where you can hear the concert and even watch it on the jumbotron which is wh … Read More
