Ride of Silence

We neglected to update the date of the Ride of Silence from last year, and inadvertently scheduled the ride for tonight @ 5:00 PM, when the national date/time is next Wednesday (5/21) @ 7:00 PM.  To honor the intent of the ride, we are postponing until that time.  We apologize for any confusion.

Bunyan’s to Bob’s

Just a friendly reminder that the (in)famous BDCC member ride, Bunyan’s to Bob’s, will happen this Saturday (5/17)!  We’ll start from Bunyan’s at 8:00 AM and ride to Bob’s, in the tiny hamlet of Martinsburg, NE.  There, we will consume this:

There are many ways to get there, depending on your intestinal fortitude:

  1. blacktop the whole way (SD Hwy 19 – NE Hwy 12 – NE Hwy 9):  around 32 miles one way via Ponca; once you hit Newcastle, it is mostly flat  [map:  https://goo.gl/maps/pauxZ]
  2. blacktop (SD Hwy 19) to Newcastle (via NE Hwy 12), gravel to Martinsburg:  around 25 miles [map:  https://goo.gl/maps/oLQne]
  3. gravel (nearly all the way):  25 miles [map:  https://goo.gl/maps/gOfIO]
  4. car:  mileage does not matter

Or any other combination thereof.  Go back whichever way your stomach allows.

Note:  the gravel from Newcastle to Martinsburg is extremely hilly—like a change in elevation of a mile.  Travel at your own discomfort.

See you there!

A bicycle as a musical instrument…?! Yeah!

[from the National Music Museum...]

The National Music Museum brings sound-artist Johnnyrandom and his ‘Bike Music’ to the Vermillion, South Dakota, Fri. & Sat., May 9th-10th, 2014

The National Music Museum is featuring sound artist and viral-video musician ‘Johnnyrandom’ at the Museum’s Open House during USD’s commencement weekend, May 9th-10th, 2014.

Johnnyrandom’s techno song “Bespoken” has become something of an Internet sensation. He created it from thousands of sounds harvested from two bicycles. Also known as Steven/Flip Baber, Johnnyrandom is the creator of the famed ‘Doritos® crunch’ sound effect (among others). He was recently featured on National Public Radio. Listen to/read the NPR blog (http://tinyurl.com/o2yrju5) or Wired Magazine’s report (http://tinyurl.com/myhyd8u).

As the centerpiece for NMM’s Open House, Friday and Saturday, we’ll display two new high-end bicycles, showing how they become musical instruments in the hands of a skilled, creative sound artist.

Don’t miss ‘Bike Music’ – either the special 12:05pm Friday ‘NMM Live!’ show; or the Friday evening/7:00pm encore, or demos throughout the day (until 5pm) on Saturday. All free.

We’re hoping to see a strong presence from local bike and music lovers!

Welcome Table 2014

Approximately once a year, BDCC sponsors the Vermillion Welcome Table–a place where, every Monday night, anyone in the community can enjoy a free, hot meal.  This year, BDCC sponsored a meal on Monday, April 21st.  It was so successful, that the Welcome Table will be able to fund a whole other meal, so the BDCC, and more importantly, the Vermillion Community, got a two-for-one special. welcome table
