Shake It Don’t Brake It: A Party for Bike Culture in Buffalo

When was the last time that you hugged your bike? OK, well, not really hugged it, but gave it a good pat? Remember, for many a bike is a trusted companion, and like hoards of people who dote over their cars (in Buffalo it’s not unusual for a person to give his or her car a Super Kiss), there are countless cyclists who spend their time pampering their two-wheel rides.

On Thursday, February 13th, 2014, for the second year in a row, GO Bike Buffalo is getting bike enthusiasts together to pay tribute to their reliable side kicks. The event will take place at Essex Street Pub (home of all things bike-friendly), where cyclists will enjoy an evening of Flying Bison drinking, dancing, eating and raffle drawing – you can even enter to win a new bike. Festivities begin at 7pm.

Free for GO Bike members
$10 for non members
$20 gets you entry and a new or renewed GO Bike membership

Come out and support the organization that is leading the way to making Buffalo a super bikeable city. According to GO Bike Buffalo, the City’s Department of Public Works (DPW) stepped up to get 59 miles of bike lanes down by the end of 2013, and are expected to move forward with an additional 20 miles (already funded) with a whopping 45 miles proposed on top of that. Thanks to the DPW and GO Bike Buffalo for making this long time dream become a reality.
