WMBA COS Halloween Crit 2011

The Women’s Mountain Bike Association of Colorado Springs (WMBA COS) is having their 4th annual Halloween Costume Critter tomorrow Saturday, October 26th. Join WMBA riders in this super fun event that will have you testing your bike handling and whip cream tossing abilities, limbo flexibility, and will bring out your most outrageous inner monster.

Ride on the bike of your choice (although wider tires are strongly recommended). Or go to witness the buffoonery from the sidelines, cheer on your favorite monster and heckle others til your sides hurt! Show up in your scariest, funniest, most clever, or best duo costume for a chance to win their costume contest!

The Costume Critter will be held at the SRM Powermeters Service Center at 720 West Monument Street. Try to arrive human powered or carpool if possible as there is limited parking.

Please arrive in costume, with a helmet and on your choice of properly functioning craft. Kids race free and Kids on Bikes will be on hand helping out. Adults fun will cost $10 which goes to a very good cause- WMBA!

Prepare to enjoy a post-ride bottomless drink cup and laughter with a slew of other cyclists in your community. One of WMBA’s generous sponsors, Bristol, has donated some liquid libations which will be available for all government i.d. holding age 21 or older adults. Don’t forget to tip your bartender.

Here are direct links to the Indy Give! page for some of my favorites – Kids on Bikes, Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates, Trails and Open Space Coalition and Rocky Mountain Field Institute.

On December 6th, 5 of the charities that are part of Indy Give! threw a great free party at City Rock to help raise money. The 5 charities were Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates, Trails and Open Space Coalition, Millibo Art Theatre, Rocky Mountain Field Institute and Kids on Bikes. They are some of the great local organizations that help give us outdoor places to play.

There were fresh adventure films, live performances, free beverages, great food and prizes. The performances included one of my friends that I rode many miles with as a teenager doing jumps and back flips on stilts. The party was brought by City Rock, New Belgium Brewing, and the Women’s Mountain Bike Association.

Here are some of the photos I took at the party. The complate Holiday Adventure Party for Indy Give photo set is here.

WMBA Halloween Costume Crit 2011 Photos

October 31st, 2011


Saturday was the 3rd Annual WMBA Halloween Costume Crit. As in the past, there were some great costumes. The criterium course included pavement, dirt, curbs and rocks.

The race had a LeMans start which was very funny to watch and is shown in the video above. Doing well required more than being fast on the bike since there were hula hoops, limbo, jello shots and hopscotch.

In addition to the crit, there was food, drinks and a raffle for a bunch of awesome prizes. Once again the ladies of WMBA put on a very fun event.

Below are a few of the photos I took. You can find many WMBA Halloween Costume Crit photos here.

WMBA of COS Halloween Bike Crit

November 1st, 2010

WMBA Halloween Bike Crit

The WMBA of COS Halloween Crit on Saturday was a fun event. There were a lot of great costumes. I think it would have been hard to ride in some of the costumes.

The crit was 20 minutes. As if riding in costume wasn’t enough of a challenge, there was the limbo, jello shots, a cup stacking station and required whipped cream refueling. It looked like all the racers were having fun and watching was a blast too.

Awards were given to the “fastest” racers and those with the best costumes. There were also prize drawings for great things like a Giant Cruiser bike, Avid CR brakes, Rock Shox SID World Cup Fork and much more. There also was a post-crit potluck with beer provided by Bristol.

A few of the photos I took are below and you can see my complete set of WMBA of COS Halloween Crit photos here.
