New Bike and Beer Festival – SanTan Wheelie Jam – 4/23

Get ready for a new bike and beer festival on April 23rd at Steele Indian School Park [near] downtown Phoenix, the SanTan Wheelie Jam. EVERYONE should be there, and bring all your friends too (oh and make sure everyone buys a few beers).

This is an all local festival, local bike groups, local beer (SanTan brewing), local food, local bands, local bike shops. TBAG is getting it going, and all beer sales proceeds will go to Phoenix groups like Rusty Spoke, AZ Bike Polo etc.

Right now we need to line up sponsors and bike activities. We can do roller wars, mini/tall bike rides and races, riding contests, fixie trick demos, bike build offs, giveaways etc. Contact ryan@biketempe.org if you know someone who wants to sponsor the event, or can help provide some kind of bike related fun. Also let me know if you can help plan the event or would like to volunteer at the event.

Any non-profit or club that wants to get the word out about their group is welcome at the event. There will be table space, you can do fliers, stickers, or sell merch.

This festival is for and by the local bike community. It’s all new so it’s a great place to try new ideas and get people excited about riding bikes and being involved in their local community.

We will be sewing to assist dementia patients, packing medical supplies for under-resourced nations, and staffing a festival to celebrate Dr. King’s life. We also need volunteers to paint murals, plant trees, and clean up local neighborhoods. Projects will take place on Saturday, January 15th, Monday, January 17th and Saturday, January 22nd.
