Cyclocross Medallion Making event

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Attention TBP Minions-
Reserve Tuesday September 14th from 6-9pm for a Tall Bike Posse build night at the SLO Bicycle Coalition Headquarters. We will be making 54 winner medallions for the Central Coast Cyclocross race series scheduled for October and November. These medallions similar to the ones made for the winners of the SLO Urban Enduro will be unique and sought after by all competitors and worn proudly by only the Winners.
We will fuel our creativity with pizza and beer. I hope you can be a part of the post industrial style assembly line.

Medallion recipe ingredients:

  1. Rear clusters that we can bust loose and gather 54 individual gears
  2. Bike inner tubes from ten speeds - 27 total (cut in half will make 54 neck ribbons)
  3. Bike chain - enough to wrap the gears
  4. Silver bronze and gold markers; or other permanent neon color- green, pink and blue? to write the place, category, and date of event.

We will disassemble clusters, bike chains and cut inner tubes and clean off grease, dry the parts with propane torches and reassemble with placement, category and date of eventĀ  (Dave, or Tyler please send info).

Visit www.slocross.com for event information, flyers and updates for the series. If you missed last year’s Doggone Cross Race at Laguna Lake and the year before at Talley Vineyards, you missed quite a spectacle. Tall Bike Posse may even take the course during the halftime show!

SLO Bike Kitchen is Open for Business!

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

SLO Bike Kitchen has been around for a while as sort of a nomad bicycle co-op with no real place to call home. Now that they have been added under the wing of the SLO County Bicycle Coalition, they now have a place. Honestly this is an ideal location at the base of the Bicycle boulevard and moments away from SLO downtown.

Am I not surprised to see this in front of the SLO Bicycle Kitchen?

I stopped by late in the afternoon to check it out and was not surprised to see a tall track bike outside. Yee-Haw!

Cyclebration at Central Coast Brewery

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

The Posse showed up with Tallbikes, bike bones and banner vinyl to SLO County Bicycle Coalition Cyclebration at Central Coast Brewery. In classic TBP tradition, we cranked out some bikeartwork and this cool banner made from recycled vinyl, bike tire paint brush and outdoor latex paint. The Posse received a Velo Revelation Award for our spectacular ability to “inspire pedal passion in our community“.

The Tall Bike Posse raised $2020.25 for the San Luis Obispo County Bicycle Coalition through events held at their annual Bike Momentum Art show during Bike Month in May. The Coalition is a non-profit organization promoting bicycle safety, education, access and awareness for everyone. The Tall Bike Posse is a loose confederation of bicyclists who ride from a different perspective.
