Creepy Crawler: Bike Pub Crawl With a Halloween Twist
On Saturday October 29th, 2016 bike riders in costume will tour several Main Street Clarence establishments for the Creepy Crawler Bike Pub Crawl.
The event is open to adults 21 and over, and includes a buffet dinner and an after party featuring DJ Milk. Event check-in will begin at 3:00 pm at the Penny Lane Cafe with the crawl heading out at 4:30 pm. Advance tickets are available online for $10, and walk-up registration the day of the event will be $15.
The goal of the ride is to create a fun, fall event that and demonstrate support for a bike-friendly Main Street in Clarence. The event is the third in a series of bike-friendly pub crawls jointly hosted by the Clarence Chamber of Commerce, Clarence Hollow Association and Discover Main Street, and organizers are hoping bicyclists from other communities continue to discover Main Street in Clarence.
Registration opens at 3pm at Penny Lane Café (10255 Main Street). Tom’s Pro Bike will be on hand to do free bike safety checks and will have lights and other bike gear available to make sure your bike is ready and legal for a fun, safe ride. Smoke, Fire & Spice will be cooking up their BBQ specialties in the courtyard before the event.
After a cocktail at Penny Lane, riders will then move as a group to five additional restaurants and pubs. At each stop, riders will enjoy drink specials. Other participating restaurants will be Clarence Grille (10250 Main Street), Gianni Mazia’s (10325 Main Street), Hollow Bistro (10641 Main Street), the Cornerstone Bar & Grill (10651 Main Street) and Clarence Bowling (10718 Main Street). The ride will return in the dark via a haunted bike path to the Penny Lane Cafe for a buffet dinner and after party with Buffalo’s DJ Milk keeping the crowd going from 8-11pm.
Recognizing that increased rates of bicycle use have been shown to add to the vitality of a town, several Clarence organizations in have been working together to help make Clarence a bike-friendly community. Last October, the first-ever Discover Main Street Fun Ride attracted over 170 cyclists who rode two separate routes in an event designed to show community support for dedicated bike lanes on Main Street in Clarence. This year, a bike corral and maintenance station was installed on Main Street at the Clarence Hollow Farmers’ Market, where it serves as a convenient rally point for group rides.
