I had the honor of attending this years Chico Bike Races. Since none of you have ever heard of it I will fill you in. There are 6 houses and at each house there is a team. Each team has a certain theme, my houses theme was Dorothy from Wizard of Oz (this is why I am wearing a dress and lipstick). At each house there is a a bunch of alcohol. Some houses have champagne, keg, mixed drinks, you never get the same thing twice. After we finish all the alcohol we ride our bikes to the next house riding through traffic lights making a ruckus.
The first house was champagne and mimosas. We got there a little early and I think I started off way to strong, especially since it was the Chico Bike Races. My friend Jeff decided to be Dorothy from the Golden girls and no one complained, he pulled it off.
If you think I looked weird with a dress you should have seen some of the other characters there. I forgot what Mike was dressing up as but he went all out and even wore high heels for the first 10 minutes.
Here I am stealing a comboy’s gun and having some fun.
The best thing about the Chico Bike Races is riding your bike from house to house while someone blocks all the traffic from you. It was 100 people in crazy costumes riding throught the streets. I wish I could have lasted longer but by the 4th house I was wasted and had to be taken home so I could pass out. Next year’s Chico Bike races will go better for me.
