If you live near Dallas, you know how local neighborhood, Oak Cliff, is working hard to be bike friendly. Although they aren’t there yet, they have a very strong bike community which has come a long way. Even when you aren’t looking for bike love in Oak Cliff, it finds you.

Join us at noon Saturday, October 19, at the award-winning Community Beer Company in the Design District for an afternoon of bicycles, bartering, and brews. In the 5th year of Cyclesomatic, we’ve added a swap meet to give folks the opportunity to swap some bike parts, a few stories, and enjoy some of the most delicious local brews you can put in your glass. The brewery is located right off Inspiration and 35 close to Victory Station and offers ample bike parking. Details on the event can be found on our Facebook event page, and if you’re interested in exhibiting, you can sign up here. A $10 donation for your table goes help fund our advocacy efforts. We’ll see you there!

Afternoon Cocktails at the Nasher

October 9, 2013 § Leave a comment

Pull out your favorite Fall cocktail attire, we’ve been invited for Cyclist Happy Hour at the Nasher!

baloonsFrom 4pm-5pm Sunday October the 20th, we’ll be mosying through the Nasher garden, admiring Picasso’s talent in clay… and sipping complimentary cocktails because we arrived in style (on bikes, of course!)

It’s all for the Nasher’s 10th Anniversary weekend, AND they’re installing new BIKE RACKS! They want the cycling community to feel welcome. And we want another great excuse to visit the Nasher! And sip afternoon cocktails. And ride through town in this amazing weather!

Events at the Nasher are scheduled throughout the day Sunday, from 10am to 10pm. Here’s the full run-down. My favorite highlights are yoga in the morning, Ballet Folklorico in the street at noon, and free Cool Haus ice-cream sandwiches. The Nasher really knows how to throw a party.

A few of us will be gathering at Oak Cliff’s Oddfellow’s at 1:45pm, to depart shortly thereafter – if you’d like to meet us at Main St Garden, let us know on the Facebook Event – we’d swing by on our way, at about 2:15pm. At 2:30 is the 360 Lecture: Nasher Xchange Panel.

Have you heard of this public art display all over the City?! It’s kicking off 10 commissioned pieces being installed this month, to stay up through February. I can’t wait to hear more about the whole project. Then afterward is the wine reception. Before the Cyclist Happy Hour starts….. You need to rsvp for the 360 Xchange & reception though – just email 360RSVP@nashersculpturecenter.org and you’re set. Free admission, free parking, free wine, cocktails and don’t forget the art! What a lovely afternoon it will be. AND we’ll even be home by dark.

Back in February I went on a bike ride organized by Bike Friendly Oak Cliff that went from Klyde Warren Park to a couple of local breweries. It was a blast and a lot of fun and I was really looking forward to the second edition which was scheduled for last Saturday. This one, The Craft and Growler Bicycle Brewery Tour was more ambitious – five scheduled stops across the city.

I had a few doubts when I woke up Saturday morning. After my nighttime ride the night before to the video production on the Omni Hotel and the fireworks on Reunion Tower a powerful cold front had blown through North Texas. There was rain predicted and a cold spitting wind was cutting across the land. Still, I didn’t want to wimp out so I packed…
