This Sunday: SD Bike Union Fall Haul-In and Picnic

The SD Bike Union is organizing their first, but not last, official community bike event this Sunday.

The Union is composed of some great SD bike advocates including Sky Boyer (Velo Cult owner, SDBikeCommuter.com creator), Jay Porter (The Linkery and El Take It Easy owner), Thomas Bahde (BikeSD.org contributor), Andrew Woolley (a respected champion of bike justice), and Fred Ollinger (a contributor on SDBikeCommuter.com forum) for the time being. With a core group of people like this, programs like the SDBikeCommuter.com Discount Program, and events like this Sunday's picnic, the Union is bound to grow into a great organization.

Flier and official statement below:

The San Diego Bike Union is hosting our first annual Fall Haul-In and Picnic at Trolley Barn Park in University Heights on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17TH @ 2:00pm.

Bring a picnic and lawn games, bring the kids, invite the neighbors!

The idea is to use your bike to transport everything to the park--we’re talking baskets, panniers, racks, backpacks, messenger bags, Xtracycles, cargo bikes, trailers, whatever you have that will turn your bike into a hauling machine--no cars needed!

This is a fun, FREE, and casual event for everyone to enjoy. You don't have to be nuts about bikes to come and enjoy good food, good community, and some fun games.

Folks from San Diego Bike Polo will be on hand to give a demonstration and let people try the sport for themselves.

Representatives from the bike kitchen Bikes del Pueblo will also be on hand to answer basic technical and repair questions.
