In today’s moment of blatant self-interest, I direct your attention to this weekend’s Artcrank grand opening. As part of the festivities, the bike-friendly folk at Clockwork Active Media Systems are hosting a pre-party for families and kids. Part of the fun will include a bike rodeo, a fine event at which I will be helping direct youthful energy into safe biking outcomes. Or, at least, helping direct youthful energy. We’ll also be helping people adjust their bike helmets.
The party is from 3-5PM at Clockwork, 1501 East Hennepin Avenue, in Minneapolis. You can RSVP to the party on Facebook (not required). Beyond the bike rodeo, there will be treats, lemonade, coloring, hopscotch, balloon animals and other mayhem. At 5PM, interested folk will be riding over for the early shift at the Artcrank opening, before too much beer is spilled and the bikers get crazy.
In summary: Fun. Hijinkies. Kids on bikes with balloon animals. Art. Come on out.
