RiotACT Bicycle Bar Crawl 2008 is on 1 November!

By johnboy - 29 October 2008 82

Four kegs of tasty beer were gifted to the Riot Overlords by the Brewer King Zierholz.

Three were promised to RiotACT premium members to enjoy by themselves according to ballot.

But the fourth? The fourth will be shared by the rugged survivors of the RiotACT bicycle bar crawl!

The meetup point is Edgar’s in Ainslie at 10am and from there the crawlers cycle through all the charming bars of the leafy Inner North, at some point around 6pm we’ll adjourn to an undisclosed location in Ainslie to see how quickly we can finish off the keg after a hard day’s cycling (with occasional midis of light beer *cough* along the way).

Bikes can be left at the finishing point for collection at a future date and there’s plenty of mattresses for those who’ll need to just have a rest.

Hope to see you there.

UPDATED: Just a reminder, for those who missed, it that this is indeed on this Saturday. Only cycling crawlers will be able to debate the merits and award by consensus the Chester Trophy for the nuttiest Nutter Of The Month in 2008.

What’s Your opinion?

Hold your horses, video takes time.

As for late joining, it’s exceptionally common, just call me on 0412 690 643 to find out where the next bar is.

I’d have loaned you mine, Granny, as I’ll be 700kms away when the fun and games is on, but like its owner, my bike has some wellbeing issues at the moment!

Speaking of which (and presuming there’ll be a separate multi-media post on this sometime), I did my constitution no end of good last night by getting down to The Front for one of the best nights of music, singing and conviviality in ages. Mr Matty Ellis, Sanjeev Da Silva, Russell Blair/Blair Russell — I’m confused!, Curly O’Hooligan, Ben Drysdale and the absolutely sublime Jacquie Apps. I mourn, my friends, for anyone who couldn’t make it.

It was something truly special.

Well, I would have borrowed a bike. No guarantees that I could have ridden it, but hey! I think I may also have a scheduling conflict however, which is really annoying because it seems like such a cool thing to do really! Is there any chance of picking it up part way or do you have to be there from the beginning?

Eggcellent. working on options now!

bloodnut 12:07 pm 22 Oct 08

Firstly you can leave your bike at the keg-swilling locale.

Secondly you can borrow bikes.

And if it’s too hard, well, more beer and fun for the rest of us.

Granny 11:28 am 22 Oct 08

I don’t even have a bicycle!

While Jazz knows that offers of beer will get me interested in almost anything, in this case, I will not be riding across town to get drunk and then ride home again.

Overheard 11:19 am 22 Oct 08

Bah! I’ll be folk festivalling it up in rural Victoria. Drink my share for me! (I realise that last sentence is redundant; and you’ll be recumbant.)

johnboy 10:45 am 22 Oct 08

If you can pedal it you can bring it.

p1 10:38 am 22 Oct 08

What about tricycles for those without balance? (by the end of the course)…

johnboy 10:37 am 22 Oct 08

Mr Evil said :

Obviously recumbants are welcome?

unicycles and penny farthings too!

caf 10:12 am 22 Oct 08

One of Satan’s own bicycles is in the picture, Mr Evil.

Mr Evil 10:06 am 22 Oct 08

Obviously recumbants are welcome?

Are those 6 dodgy characters out the front of Wests Turner bowlo?
