The date has been set! The RiotACT Bicycle Bar Crawl 2006 is going to take place on Sunday 17-SEP-06.

We have a pictorial tour of last year’s fun.

It will kick off at 10.30am, If you’d like to come along email johnboy@the-riotact.com and I’ll let you know the kickoff bar (in the inner north).

The more the merrier!

UPDATE: Che has done the numbers and we’ve got $200 from the googleads to put over the bar. This will only be available to people who have cycled to at least one bar with us. Folks planning to rock up should be aware we’re starting at a different bar this year and following a different route, so please email me, or SMS 0412 690 643 if you want to come along

Probably just as well I won’t be there – I am unco on a bike, and could probably ride over my own foot…

But enjoy everyone!

bah free beer – now Im annoyed I can not come.

excellent. another chance to run over NTP…

Yeh, or they could just start fining non helmet wearing riders? I’m fairly sure there’s a law saying you’re supposed to? All it would take is some enforcement…
I know I’d be in a pretty vegetative state by now if not for all the helmets that have saved my head while riding.

Now there’s an idea Geoffco – and the revenue would bail the gummint out of trouble for years to come…

Since when do you need a licence to ride a bike?

That would be if we were getting drunk Stella as opposed to having a drink between exercise food and water.

But if you’re a fretting killjoy feel free to stay home.

I was just wondering, as a bike is classed as a vehicle, surely you are risking losing your licence if you advertise that you will be riding between pubs.

I hadn’t realised it was now the in thing to publicly reject invitations.

I already know that most RA readers are pikers, no need to publish your reasons.

Unfortunately I can not come – its my fiancees birthday that day..

that could be extremely ugly shabs.. you bad bad man..

it would be kind of be funny though

I’m just wondering if AD will frock up; and how that will go on the bike…

..and will no doubt turn up on Monkey-bikes.

well they’re talented!

hmmm..slight double-take in wondering why Barrel of Monkeys were forecasting the weather. 😮

Yet again, you seem to have picked a date and time when I can’t make it (I’m interstate with my parents this weekend). Ah well…

BOM would suggest it’s going to be a corker of a day: Sunday Fine, mostly sunny. Min 1 Max 21

My bike is covered in spiders, I used it once but my 500m rocky driveway defeated me, so some spider real estate agent has rented it out.

I hope the weather is better than today, yuck.

Big Al, you haven’t offended me yet, just pissed me off. There’s a difference.

Besides, I have the “fun” task of seeing the in-laws that weekend. Oh what joy!

I’d rather be drinking with you than with them.

Great! Saves me money … I was planning on buying people I’d offended in the past on RA a beer – I figured I’d be up for between 20-30 beers so one less will be a bonus!

Ok, I can’t go….not bloody fair.

Just make sure you all have a beer for me ok?


Well as this event has been timed to allow for my inclusion I am happy to announce that I will be there. Anyone who wishes to catch up with me (assuming there is anyone who remembers who I am) it would be great to see you onthe day.

Absent Diane4:10 pm 08 Sep 06

nah…. unless of course there is pool or trivia involved or something competitive going on…

If I can get my old bike from my triathalon days fixed I will probably come along

Do you always get competitive in a bar AD?

You COULD compete to be at the next bar first, we’d appreciate someone to stake out a table and get the first round in.

Absent Diane3:28 pm 08 Sep 06

hmm I am pretty sure my competitive nature would come out hardcore in something like this (ie ride faster and drink more beer), and unfortunately I don’t have the fitness to warrant it

1) “Annual meeting of the Gay Peddaling Poo-Pushers” was nixed by the marketing guys, wear white t-shirts and we scan scribble anything you like with markers

2) Recumbents are welcome, you can discuss it amongst yourselves.

3) Fat lazy bastards should be fine, the course is mostly flat and the cycling between pubs is not excessive. Also you can se ay mode of transport you wish as long as we are not held responsible

Any more questions?

Mr E – I’m a fat lazy bastard and I’ll give it a go. Beer and cycling … what a combination!

No way am I wearing lycra!

But I could always bring my bright orange flag on a pole?

barking toad2:34 pm 08 Sep 06

go straight to the pub evil one – but wear some gay lycra gear

Well then, that’s discrimination! 🙂

This won’t be the event for you…

What about if you’re a fat lazy bastard who doesn’t want to ride a bike?


what is the policy on recumbents ?

I move you change the name from “Bicycle Bar Crawl” to “Annual meeting of the Gay Peddaling Poo-Pushers”.

Scared of bicycles thumper? They don’t bite!

I’m sure you can borrow one from somewhere if you get motivated.
