Wend Magazine’s Benefit Mini-Bike

Race and Raffle – September 12, 2009

Where: 525 NW 10th Ave, PDX, OR – The Lizard Lounge Warehouse Space on

NW 10th & Hoyt in the Pearl.

When: Saturday September 12 @ 7pm.

What: Join Wend Magazine and Lizard Lounge for a benefit mini-bike

(children’s bikes) cyclocross race and party to celebrate the release of Wend’s

latest issue. We’ll be turning the Lizard Lounge warehouse space into an epic

mini-bike course, and ten bucks gets you into the race. What’s better than

adults racing on children’s bikes for a good cause? Answer: putting helmet

cams on them. This promises to be the most entertaining fundraising event

you’ll ever attend. All proceeds from the race will go to our Platform partner

for this issue, Defenders of Wildlife. Since we’re teaming up with Defenders of

Wildlife, dressing as your favorite wild animal is highly encouraged and all

race competitors in costume will get five seconds deducted from their total

time. Examples: a monkey suit with downhill gear, a Sasquatch suit with a

tutu, or something as simple as a big set of bunny ears. We’ll also be raffling

off some sweet gear to help you in your fall adventures from Sierra Designs,

Optimus, Osprey and Patagonia. Support green, independent media, and

help raise money for a great cause. Free beer (and lots of it) from Deschutes

Brewery. DJ beats will make for booty shaking into the evening.
