Blinking Man Returns! The Blinking Bike Posse... TONIGHT!!!

Its amazing what 20 years of progress can do in a city like Las Vegas. I say 20 years because it was that long ago that cycling was my only mode of transportation. I loved riding my mountain bike all over the place. Not to mention the fact I was in spectacular shape! As time has passed bicycles are now seen more throughout the city, and not just in Red Rock Canyon. Cycling is a great way to get in shape and an excellent way to reduce our carbon footprint!

As cycling is being embraced, especially in a community where "Car-is-King", there are great events cropping up in support of this mode of transportation. On April 21st the "Blinking Man" returns to Downtown Las Vegas. This amazing Bike/ Bar Crawl will meander throughout Downtown to several of the neighborhoods most memorable watering holes. Obviously this is a 21 and over event but nonetheless a fun ride.

So if you want to hang out with an amazing crop of eccentric cyclists who deck-out their bikes in lights and all different kinds of accoutrements this is the party for you!

Ill be there and I expect you to be there too! Be safe and drink responsibly.
