The calendars have been sent to the printer!

So, we just sent the calendars in to the printer!! Hopefully by late next week we should have them ready for distribution around town. The front is the postcard image, except blown up and with a bit more detail, and the back is the calendar of events. the "official" calendar is still the website, as there were so many events this year that we had trouble fitting complete descriptions. so, the print is the abridged version, and the web is encyclopedia bikefest.
If anyone would like to help distribute the calendar, please email me at bikefest@bike-pgh.org.
THANKS, especially to Mike Pfaltzgraph of Sopa/Pfaltzgraphics for the design work, everything looks great!!

The party is starting to come together. We're shooting for one of the best parties of the year again. Looks like we got lots and lots of prizes to raffle off and have as prizes for games, including some Gary Fisher Bikes and Planet Bike stuff!!! Planet Bike is also planning on attending.
Also, East End Brewing Company in Homewood is ponying up for some Brew!
I'll keep everyone updated once the details are set and we have pictures of the prizes and whatnot.
Make sure to keep June 30th open on your calendars. We know there is a Gallery Crawl earlier in the evening Downtown, but there will be a bike ride from that event to our party, so everyone can do it all!! Bring some energy bars for a super fun night in Pittsburgh, cause we think you'll need them.

Time is ticking away...

So, we're trying to smooth out the calendar for this year's BikeFest!!! There's a lot of creative events, and seems like it's going to be a really fun jam-packed twelve days! The variety of events this year is great as there has been more of an effort to get kid and family friendly rides this year.

Anyway, if you are planning a ride and still have the details "TBA," or haven't submitted your ride that you've been promising to do, NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT!!!


Once we go to press, it's going to be really hard to change the details.

To put another deadline on you, we will print a photocopy version of the calendar for Bike to Work Week and Pedal Pittsburgh, so if you want your event listed for this, we need the details by May 10.

If you haven't seen it for awhile, check out the calendar; i guarantee you'll be really impressed.

Now for the plug: We're soliciting vendors for the Bike Swap at the Warhol, so if you or a friend has lots of bike parts that you want to sell/trade, etc, this is your time to do it. Check out the details on the calendar.

That's all for now.
make sure to check out the calendar: www.bike-pgh.org and the blog: http://bikefestpgh.blogspot.com/

I also want to send a thanks to all of the sponsors of BikeFest 06. We couldn't do this without you. There is still time to sponsor BikeFest at the individual level, so if you or someone you know would like to help us out so that we can make this event happen and keep it as free as possible, please consider sponsoring us. Details are on the website.
