A leisurely bike ride will connect the above events. It leaves from Bikeworks Bike Shop at noon and ends in Fremont around 4 pm, with a two-hour fun stop on Capitol Hill. Art bikes and costumes are encouraged, but not necessary.
What is an art bike? It's a bike with attitude. What's the message you want to send the world? Let your bicycle and/or outfit reflect this. Put a banner on your bike, wear a hi-visibility hat, decorate your helmet--it doesn't take much to let your creativity shine through. If you don't have a costume or decorated bike, don't worry about it, this ride is open to anyone who enjoys pedaling (or skating) slowly through the city. Put on your Saturday best and join us for a summer day you'll never forget.
For more info on all the fun that wouldn't fit in this email,

See you on Saturday, and please pass this on to at least 2 friends...
p.s. Look at these pictures from last year's car-free event in Fremont, taken
by this year's ride marshal
Doesn't that look like fun? Also notice the thoughtfulness at the 9/11 memorial. I know there was no place I would rather have been after that than with friends riding around all day on bicycles. That little bit of quietness and innocence really helped me deal with it, the anniversary of which is quickly coming up.
