A’s Bike Rally – Spread the Word!

Oakland A’s fans are taking to the streets on August 30 to bring the city and team exactly what they need: a rally parade!


From the East Bay Express:

Oakland Bike Rally for the Athletics

With the scraper bike craze in full force, two-wheel junkers are supplanting gas-guzzling automobiles as the sexy new form of transport in Oakland. Saturday’s bike rally for the Athletics attests for a new (albeit anachronistic) vision of civil society that’s gradually starting to catch on around here. Equipped with boom-boxes, noisemakers, and “tailgating grills,” the parade kicks off with a 10 a.m. breakfast at Lois the Pie Queen (851 60th St., Oakland) and runs through Oakland all day, stopping off at several BART stations before arriving at its final destination, the McAfee Coliseum parking lot. Then it’s off to watch the Oakland A’s spar the Minnesota Twins at 6:05 p.m. (Rally organizers will provide a safe space for participants to stow their bikes during the game.)
