Some of you troopers continued riding your bikes through the summer, despite the evil sky orb's influence. The rest of us thin-skinned types wait around for these temperate months before rolling up one pant leg. This Saturday at Art in Motion your level of alt/transport dedication will not be judged -- but how many balloons you can hook up to your handlebars will.
We're having a tricked-out bike parade through the Arts District, although if you're cruising around in a wagon, peddle-operated beer mobile, or any non-engine free-wheeling device, then you're more than invited to join. Throw some maribu on the spokes, dud the whole thing up with lights and out-pimp everyone else's rides. (There's prizes on the line, and the Observer is known for being an over-gifter, so they'll be good.)
We're all meeting up at the Dallas Museum of Art at 7 p.m. for bicycle registration and judging is at 7:30 p.m. From there, we'll all cruise over to One Arts Plaza where the Observer has set up a big ol' party! There will be food, drinks and live music by ISHI. Oh, and the whole thing is free. Yep, free. So get artsy with that plush whip and meet some new friends.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
