Update: I’ve added links to photos and slide shows that other people took as well as a snippet of audio from Ken Scoville’s presentation at the bottom of this post. I’ll also add some of the photos to Wild West Ride gallery.
The first annual Wild West Bike Ride is in the books. It was a great crowd with a lot of awesome costumes. Between 30 and 40 people showed up, some with guns and cowboy hats and others with sock puppet steeds.
Thanks to all of you who attended the ride. A special thanks to Ken Scoville of Old Pueblo Walking Tours for the wonderful history lesson, Ordinary Bike Shop and PopCycle for the prizes and BICAS and Kylie Walzak for all your help.[audio:http://www.bicycletucson.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/history.mp3|titles=history]
I got this in an email from Pam:
Pam wrote, “I love the fact that I captured that one amazing moment- it’s never gonna happen, ever again. There it is, that lady in her boots, a tall bike with a skull mounted on it and a tandem with smiling people with a sock puppet horse head, right in the middle of downtown Tucson. How freaking awsome is that?”
Awesome indeed! Thanks everyone.
