Happy Second Birthday, Eastside Bike Club

6_25_10_eastside.jpgThis Saturday, the Eastside Bicycle Club turns two with a big party planned for its second birthday party at Lincoln Park from 2:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M.  The event will feature a pair of concurrent bike rides, the handing out of the "Golden Crank" awards, an all-afternoon barbeque and a fireworks show.  A fireworks show?  Nice.

On Facebook, Morales promotes the events and explains why two rides:

We will have two bike rides starting at the same time: One ride is
geared for newer riders and kids, the second Ride will travel thru the
Hollenbeck Community of El Sereno, Boyle Heights and Lincoln Heights.
After riding the Bike Ride we will have our BBQ Fundraiser, raffles,
and be entertained by bands and DJ’s.

Morales also encourages people to dress for a party and in a show of a little pre-4th of July merriment to decorate your bikes in red, white and blue.  If you’re not a Facebook member, you can read the party announcement after the jump.
