Bike night s take many forms, but are always focused on one thing… Motorcycles. Long before I started working for Cycle Gear, I met weekly with a group of friends at a local pizza place. The usual suspects would always be there, rain or shine, and we would welcome anyone in that rode, wanted to ride, or just wanted to talk about motorcycles. I developed some long lasting friendships, found out about great roads, and restored a bit of my faith in humanity at those and other local bike nights. It is an opportunity to get away from the real world for a few hours with a group of people that share a common interest.
Chances are that if you have been to cyclegear.com or the Cycle Gear Facebook page, you have heard that we host bike nights pretty much year round. The basic idea behind a Cycle Gear bike night is to provide a location for you to get together with your fellow two-wheeled proponents and swap stories, set up rides, eat free food, and maybe even walk away with some SWAG from one (or more) of the many vendors that we get to come out. Much like the first bike nights I attended at the local pizza place, I go to the Cycle Gear bike nights when they are happening in my area to catch up with old friends, meet new ones, and just drift into “motorcycle reality” for a few hours.
Last night I braved the cold and threat of rain and went to the Sacramento bike night with some of my co-workers. Despite the weather there was a good turn out and everybody had a good time. I have heard that pictures are worth a thousand words, so I will leave you with 10,000 words about how much fun I had!
