Redbones Bike Benefit 2012

The Bike Party at Redbones

What a nice party!  But where are the bicycles?

Our friends from Wheelworks

There they are! Raffle numbers called out! A marching band, beer, barbecue, and everyone brought a hot date (bicycles were the arm candy of the night!)- a good time for one and all!

Welcome to the local community…

Here at Montague we’re of the opinion that your bike ought to be as dynamic as your life.  You are versatile, adapting and changing and challenging the roads of the world – why should your bike be any different? Strong, versatile, portable – you know how it works.

You can find Montague Bikes in just about any corner of the world, but we wanted to take a moment to share about some great goings-on here in our hometown.  Boston is fortunate to be home to a thriving bicycle community and we’re thrilled to be part of it!  Just yesterday Montague Bikes participated as a sponsor for the 16th Annual Redbones Bike Benefit and Party in Somerville, MA.  This event is a hallmark of the local community and every year hosts a raffle to benefit MassBike and NEMBA; groups whose missions reflect bike-friendly communities and transit, safety, fitness, advocacy, and of course- the joy of cycling.  Montague Bikes contributed items for the benefit raffle in support of this great mission that we embrace as well.

And the prize goes to…

Montague Bikes at Bike Benefit 2012

Representing every aspect of cycling – couriers, MTB, commuters, builders, activists, racers, custom-builds, international group rides, shops, beginners and (our favorite) folding bikes – this party was the place to be.  Bicycle valet filled, beer garden overflowing, enthusiasm abounds!  This is what happens when cyclists get together.  We reconnected with old friends, and made some new ones.

We’re looking forward to contributing to the cycling community here in a big way!  Keep an eye out if you’re in Boston, and if you’re not – you don’t have to look too hard, Montague bikes roll the world.

What is the why of your wheels?  Its story time, how do bike parties look in your part of the world?

Want a piece of the action?  Tonight we’ll be at the BSA’s Let’s Talk About Bikes Exhibition opening.  Maybe we’ll see you there?

(Too far away to come in person?  The Exhibition will be up until August 31st, if you’re coming through Boston this summer, if not – share your tale, make us quiver with anticipation about the events in your town, come on, don’t be shy…)
