Holy City Bike Co-op threw a sweet little party at the Upper Deck and post-party ride last Wednesday night to raise funds for new equipment for their budding nonprofit. The Co-op reserved two King Street parking spaces from the city for $10 each, where they offered a complimentary bike valet service. At max capacity, the bar was filled with a lively group of bike enthusiasts, all chatting and enjoying the great deals behind the bar. Dan Kelley, one of the group’s founders, was busy feeding the thirsty people booze, but I did get the chance to talk to him afterward — they made roughly $350 in tips and sticker sales, enough to buy the tools they need. For our visual entertainment, the guys and girls of Street Level Labs, a local art project group, provided throwies (light-up magnetic bike decorations), and Blobber — think chalkboards of the future. Out of the 65 people who showed up to party, about 25 made it on the ride. After Home Spun Hoops gave a send-off performance, bikers set off on a nice tour of downtown, to the Battery and back. The Holy City Bike Co-op’s next meeting is Feb. 1. Learn more at www.holycitybikecoop.org.
