We at Santa Cruz Bike Party think that bikes are fantastic, and we fantasize about bikes. Although that’s not what this ride is about.

Think rather: “Lord of the Chain Rings”, “Drivetrains and Dragons”, “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Carbon Fiber”, “The Tire, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”.

Help us defeat the forces of darkness who would suck every last drop of blood from the earth to feed their hideous metallic beasts. Your quest begins Friday next, two hours ere the set of the crescent moon.
