[masked]The[masked]th Almost-Annual Matt Armbruster Memorial BIG WHEEL RALLY!!!
Keeping with my loose bike theme for this year while I'm recovering, I present you with Boulder's own Big Wheel Rally. It does involve pedaling (bike theme), carousing around boulder's Pearl Street, and if you wish, some drinking. I highly recommend getting a big wheel anywhere and anyway you can -- it only enhances the night and allows you to participate in all of the fun. From the Walrus, to St. Julian, to the pearl street mall, it's a pub crawl on big wheels!
how can you go wrong? And better yet, it's all for charity!
The proceeds are going to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Saint Joseph Hospital. Drink, be merry, and have fun of your life to help support the preemies and babies who need our help.
Checkout the big wheel rally site

Early bird pricing is good until July 1st. So sign up early.

Not sure about it yet? Check out a video
created a few years back, or photos from a number of the events over the years
. Costumes are welcome and customizing your big wheel is encouraged.
Need a big wheel? Check out the Official Big Wheel Rally Store
, you local super-mart/Toy Store/sporting goods store, barrow one from your kids, call your parents and see if yours is still in the garage, use a neighbors, or check out craigslist for a used one; and let the fun begin.
This is a very loose event. Come for the beginning, enjoy the power slides, costumes, races, and stay as long as you want. I wasn't able to make it last year, but two years ago there were about 60 people on big wheels, and many more watching wishing they had big wheels to join in the fun.
