GoMeansGo has put up a great show of bike-related artwork, called Art Velo, for a very limited time. The show is at Alley Cat Eats and Drinks, which is located at 3516 Fremont Place North, in Fremont (alley entrance). It’s only there for two weeks, so hurry! Might I humbly suggest this weekend’s First Friday artwalk in Fremont might be a good time to stop by? Details here.
Upcoming Dark Days Photo Contest
Speaking of GoMeansGo, I’ve teamed up with Ryan to organize a “dark days” photo contest. We’ll be soliciting bike-related photos taken outside after dark (which is most of the time, these days here in the Northwest), and wrapping up the contest on December 20, the darkest (weekend) day of the year.
Details are just being finalized, and I’ll post an official call for entries here in the next few days, so you can just consider this a little teaser. We’ve lined up two great sponsors: both Planet Bike and Bikeglow will be providing bike lights as prizes for the winners of the contest. In fact Planet Bike will be giving a full “commuter package” including lights, fenders and more, to one winner. So start thinking up creative photo ideas, and stay tuned.
Because all cycling is local, I’d like to draw your attention to the way the Seattle cycling community is rallying to support one of its own, the mustachio’d man about town, Val Kleitz, who is currently battling cancer.
Aaron’s Bicycle Repair and Redline Bicycles are raffling off a Redline 9-2-5 fixed-gear commuter bike to support Val. Swing by Aaron’s to buy a ticket, through mid-December. Raffle tickets must be purchased in person at Aaron’s (Washington gambling laws…), but Aaron has setup a PayPal account for donations for far-flung folks to support Val.
And finally, I’m putting out a call for a designer to work with me on a Bikejuju site design facelift. It’s time this site moved beyond its stock WordPress theme. I have a limited budget, and am seeking a designer with WordPress/CSS design experience, a portfolio of visually bold work, and preferably someone who shares the bike love. Can be located anywhere. Email juju at bikejuju dotcom if you’re interested.
Oh and by the way, wouldn’t you like to sign up to receive Bikejuju by email? Yeah, I thought so.
