By the way, if you’re reading this and run a local bike club or organization (Major Taylor’s, WPW, PTAG, PORC, DORC, etc) we want you at the party showing off your org. Every org/club will get some free tickets. We want this to be a big bicycle love fest so people find out about all the great bike stuff going on in the city.

Hey Everyone,

We’re trying to raise money for more bike advocacy with this party (more bike lanes, racks, working with the port authority, maps, sharrows, etc.) Please help by 1. buying a ticket and 2. sharing this with all your local family and friends, social networking sites, twitter etc. Thanks!!!

This is always the best party of the year. So wonderful to see that there’s more “bike people” each time, along with old friends.
