Wildcats, a cargo bike show, Novembers First friday. . .

Frances is Steppin' out with some events coming up.  

Thanks to Alex at the Box Bike Collective, I'll be showing at the San Jose Cargo Bike Festival next Sunday at the Armory from 10am to 2pm!

The Wild Critter! 

The third Wildcat Race of the season is coming to us on the  8th of November.  Check out the details on the Wild Critter Facebook page.

And further on into November here is one that you should not miss if you lurk in the Santa cruz Downtown Basin (Flood-plain).

The Cosmic Design Studio is hosting a November first Friday event featuring John Caletti of Caletti Cycles, Lauren Junker of Totally Tubular, Garret Kautz with Strawfoot, and myself with Frances.  We'll be showing off the latest efforts coming out of our shops and trying to look beautiful.

But let's not be confused: The food will be served by Austin and friends at the  Back Porch and the drinks are supplied by  Corralitos Brewing. These folks are Artisans too and we can marvel at and appreciate their wares as well.

Cosmic is downtown at 115 Cooper Street (corner of Cooper & Front Streets) from 5-9pm.  And since they are hoping to feed a bunch of folks they like to hear how many might show up, so visit their EventBrite page and register (it's free and pretty easy).

Otherwise, shop-time is full of cargo bike and trailer fabrication with more trailers rolling out (holler if you want one!) and a rash of frame-repairs and modifications.  Here's a photo Daniel sent from near Point Arena.
