Choppercabras is a bicycle club that formed around making custom choppers, stretch cruisers and the like. The rides are focused on fun, anyone is welcome, you don't have to have a custom bike, vintage bike, just a bike, any will do. Of course part of the fun is all the cool bikes that you get to see at these events!
We start at noon. Being late means you miss out.
Dress up. Dress up. You're still "cool" even in costume. This is an easy one.
We do events, this time around we have Miny tall bike do the worm race, Ghetto Blasters of doom race, and the demo derby.
The events involve a lot of physical contact, lots. You may get hurt, count on it. Participate if you want, or watch, but do one or the other. Interfering with the events makes it less fun for everyone involved, don't be that person.
After the events we do a leisurely paced ride that starts and stops at the shop. Stay to the right and be nice, we're out there to have fun. The ride will 5-10 miles long, you won't feel the distance in a group ride. We go slow.
Then I feed you. Yes, for free.
Be respectful of the neighborhood, throw your trash in the proper receptacle, be child-like not childish.
I have new landlords, they took some convincing to let me keep doing the events. Their main concern is the people staying after and the drinking during and especially after the events. They own the bar, if you want to drink go patronize the bar and they will make some money and be happy and we can continue to have fun. I've never asked for anything in return for my efforts, now I am. Police your scene people.
Yes, all for free.
