Velo Wonderland: A roaring good time had by all

Velo Wonderland: A roaring good time had by all

EBBC’s holiday party, Velo Wonderland, was a big hit! More than 250 bicyclists showed up to enjoy the festivities. Uptown Body and Fender was beautifully decked out, and the bike racks were packed to capacity. We toasted the inaugural ride of Linden Street Brewery’s cargo bike, with beer being served right off the bike. The specially-brewed Velo Wonderland Lager was a perfect compliment to the tasty snacks from Spice Monkey and delicious desserts from Commis. DJ Olga T kept party-goers bopping throughout the night.

Lots of excellent local art was on display, from kiwis made of bottle caps to mixed media bicycle posters. Wearable art, such as handmade cycling knickers and decorative buttons, tantalized, too.

You can check out the photos of Velo Wonderland on our flickr page. Thanks to Dustin Jensen for his great shots at the photobooth. Thanks to all of you who came and celebrated a year of successes at EBBC. See you next year!

We’d like to give a special thank you to our donors Uptown Body & Fender, Linden Street Brewery, Spice Monkey, OaksterCabs, Commis, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s, as well as our curator, Margo Rivera Weiss. Thanks also to our many member-volunteers!
