  1. This sounds awesome!
    I’m interested in getting a group of youth involved to help with this event, if possible.

    Email me! Thanks!

  2. I saw your post on craigslist about needing a poster design, I’m a local artist/bike lover and would love to volunteer a design! If you still need a design please shoot me an email and I can send over some work samples. Thanks!

  3. I want to support this. I would love to play at a fund-raising concert. Check out my music on http://www.leafcolors.com and email me at jeremy@leafcolors.com if you’re interested.

    Love,

  4. Hey,

    Just found your site while looking for bike-related art. Very short notice but we’re throwing a bike party on Saturday April 10 2010 at 4710 Ballard Avenue in Ballard: http://www.thinksmall.org.

    Would be great to meet and rally forces for future events. It’s also not too late to contribute artwork for one-night show. You could also leave your own propaganda on our info table. Bike power!

    • I went to that event for a short time early in the evening! It was awesome! I silk-screened a t-shirt and a pair of undies.

      Yes, let’s do figure out a way to join forces!!!
