Last year, we let Halloween Expert and Penny Lane Cafe Proprietress Anne Valby talk us into an idea for a Halloween Bike Pub Crawl in Costumes. The result was a magical night of drinks, laughter, and Halloween surprise that caught everyone off guard.
On Saturday October 28th, the Creepy Crawler will be back and better than ever. A total of 7 stops are planned, including new locations West Shore Brewing Company and AJ’s.
Bike it, walk it or ride in luxury in our Crawl Shuttle. It’s your choice for the same $10 (advance) ticket. No matter which way you go, the Creepy Crawler is shaping up to be Main Street’s biggest bike-friendly crawl event yet.
Check-in and walk up registration is from 2:30-3:30pm at Penny Lane Cafe at 10255 Main Street in Clarence. Tom’s Pro Bike is back with us again and will be on hand with free safety checks, gear and can handle any needed last-minute repairs.
The crawl will begin with registration and cocktails at Penny Lane Café in Clarence, before leaving at 4pm to begin making its way to some of the best spots in town for drinks, music and creepy haunts. The Crawl stops will include:
- Gianni Mazias
- Hollow Bistro
- West Shore Brewing Company
- Clarence Bowling
Then it’s back to Penny Lane at 8pm for an afterparty at the newly expanded Penny Lane bar with live music from the Dave Viterna, and winners of the best costume contest will be announced.
The goal of the ride is to create a fun, fall event that continues to demonstrate support for a bike-friendly Main Street in Clarence. The event is the latest 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.
Increased rates of bicycle use have been shown to add to the vitality of a town. Recognizing this, these Clarence organizations in have been working together to help make Clarence a bike-friendly community.
Towards this end, Discover Main Street has also begun partnering with Slow Roll Buffalo, most recently for the Clarence Bike Stampede on September 30th that drew several hundred riders to West shore Brewing Company (10995 Main Street) for a tour of Clarence.
Advance tickets are available on Eventbrite for $10. Walk-up registration for $15 is also available on the day of the event.
