A fantastic day for a shindig…a Bike Shindig!
Sunday was a good day. Not only was I able to wake up after only 3 hours of sleep, but I was also able to host my first ‘Bike Shindig’ at Sidebar. Sidebar’s outside area is the perfect space for a bike gathering, especially on such a beautiful day.
Being that it was the first time I organized an event, I wasn’t sure what to expect. To my surprise all the right people came…they traveled from as far as Sunrise to participate! Yep, cyclist are a great community.
So you have a better understanding, the Bike Shindig is a a flea market/gathering of sorts for bicycle enthusiasts (or anyone, really). Enjoy food and drink, while being able to buy, sell and trade all bicycling culture items. And, of course, enjoy a good conversation or two.
It all worked out just like that. Sellers came, buyers came, cyclists came, friends came…everyone was there enjoying the day and looking for things they might need or want and can’t find online. It was a fantastic community event!
Thanks to all the sellers that came out!
A special thanks to Miami Bike Scene, Karim from Miami Bike Shop, and Magic City Bike Collective for your cooperation and participation.
And thank you to PBR Miami, for the support and the $2 beer specials
Stay tuned the next one will be on the way real soon!
Can’t wait to do it again!
