Hosted by your friendly neighborhood Bikerowave on Friday Feb 7th at 9pm
Come join the fun at pop-up trivia night! Proceeds from the event will benefit Break the Cycle, an organization that provides preventative dating and domestic violence education and outreach to teens and young adults. More info can be found at http://www.stayclassy.org/fundraise?fcid=295732
There is a suggested donation to Break the Cycle of $3 (or $2 if you arrive
like a boss via bike!), and food will be available for additional donations.
This is a 4-round game. The first, second, and fourth rounds are ten questions each, some with extra credit questions attached. Points will only be given for correct extra credit answers if the original question is also answered correctly. For questions with two extra credit questions attached, both the original question and first extra credit must be answered correctly to receive points for the second extra credit.
The third round is a picture round, with up to twenty images of people, places, objects, etc. Teams must try to identify the subject of each picture.
Teams are given the option to Joker the first, second, or fourth round by circling the jester icon on their answer sheet. This will give the team double the points earned on the round (excluding extra credit, which will not double). No points will be lost for incorrect answers on a Joker round. A team may only Joker one round per game, so choose wisely!
1. NO CHEATING! This means NO PHONES DURING PLAY. Feel free to text, call, surf the web, etc. during breaks between rounds. FIVE POINTS WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE DEDUCTED FOR ANY TEAM WITH A MEMBER USING A PHONE DURING PLAY. No arguing, no excuses. Phone out, lose five points.
2. No shouting out answers.
3. Teams can be up to six players. Teams over six players will be allowed but will receive a two point penalty for each extra player.
4. This is pop-up trivia, meaning it will sometimes take place in private residences. Please be respectful of your surroundings. Don’t trash anything, don’t steal anything. The game can only survive if players are respectful towards their hosts.
Have fun, and invite your friends!
Aww, that sucks
Fixing a flat is probably the most common repair, and also, one of the easiest once you know how to do it. Reading about it is sometimes unclear and hard to understand.
Why not come to the Mar Vista Farmers market, and have Jordan show you how to repair that flat? Not only will he be showing you how to patch your flat tire, but also give you some tips on how to fix a flat while you are on the road, and some other tips and tricks.
If you have a flat tire at home, bring it in and fix it up. If you don’t, no worries, we will have tubes to practice on.
So come over to the Farmers Market on Feb 2nd at Noon, get some breakfast, and learn how to keep your bike on the road even when it resists!
You’ve tried all the other New Years resolutions before I’m sure. Exercising, dieting, quitting caffeine, not eating frosting straight out of the can. I can relate.
Why not take a different path this year, and one that doesn’t take such a full life commitment. One that will not only empower you to be better at something you are interested in, but also help other people, as well as your community?
Volunteering at Bikerowave is super fulfilling. You not only learn about fixing and maintaining bikes, you also get to help people keep their bikes on the road, and get more involved with the west side cycling scene. Also, if you ride your bike here, you’ll get some of that exercise you committed to.
Even if you don’t know a top tube from a bottom bracket, you’ll learn about it, and then pass that knowledge on to someone else. Bicycle Folklore if you will.
I promise, it’s worth your while.
All you have to do is come in to the shop Monday-Thursday at 6:30pm (maybe even a few minutes early) and introduce yourself to the Head Mechanic. They will give you a short Orientation and all the details. More info on our Get Involved page.
We are really looking forward to meeting you!
Just a quick reminder that we are closed for Christmas Eve/Day in order to enjoy the holiday.
Feel free to come in Thursday or this weekend to put together that swank carbon fiber bike that Santas Elves were to lazy to assemble.
One of the main things we do, and a huge part of our mission here at Bikerowave, is getting broken bikes back on the road. More often than not, that involves parts, and one of the main parts that breaks and/or goes bad is the shifter.
Many bikes that come into the shop have overly complex and unrepairable shift levers, and often it is annoying and difficult to find new (or used) ones that work, for a reasonable price.
This kickstarter campaign came across our membership recently, and while we are not explicitly endorsing it as an organization, it’s a great idea we would like to see it succeed in it’s mission: to get a strong, simple, repairable shift lever into the hands of people who need it and more bikes back on the road.
