Art and Bicycles at the First Friday Art Walk

Welcome to the Flagstaff Bicycle Revolution!
Bob and I pedaled around downtown Flagstaff last night for the November First Friday Art Walk.  Our fall has been unseasonably warm and while I worry about the prospects for skiing in December I am enjoying being able to comfortably ride my bike well into the night, especially for weekend date nights.

At Aspen and Leroux
Plenty of parking!
As usual, downtown parking is a breeze when you leave the car at home and ride a bike instead.  You could never get this many cars in in this amount of space on the curb.  Biking to and from the art walk also allows for an extra guilt-free appetizer at Criollo, too.

City lights and bike reflectors aglow on San Fran.
The Monte Vista's neon sign all lit up atop their roof.  It's one of downtown Flagstaff's most charming features.  And hotel is fun place to stay the night if you want to hang out in the city all night.

I could not get this dog to look in the camera.  Is it me?
These street musicians were really good.  I have no idea who they are.  I wonder if they look familiar to anyone.

Flagstaff Bicycle Revolution on Mike's Pike on the southside of the railroad tracks was hosting a hopping First Friday party. Lots of original work from a local artists Stu Henderson and Brian Walker.

Bicycle Revolution speicializes used and refurbished bicycles and new bike frames and parts.  Owner CJ Constantopoulos also holds periodic bike repair classes, which I really need to take advantage of someday soon.  We chatted last night about him working with me next summer to put together the touring bike of my dreams (because 3 bikes just isn't enough).  He's selling the above (elegant!) frame on consignment for a man whose moving out of state for a pretty sweet price.

VooDoo Cycles has a cool logo.  They are a really popular bike in Flagstaff.  Strangely, I only recently learned they are a local mountain bike company.

3 S. Mike's Pike, Flagstaff, 86001
The storefront.  Very eye-catching logo on the side of the building that nicely captures of "revolution" theme.

Bob and I as we depart for dinner at Beaver Street Brewery.  Chili and corn bread, here we come!

What a great looking evening, and you got to ride their in the dark too, so even better! I'd like an event like this happen here, it looks like it was a lot of fun. My husband and I travelled through Flagstaff twice and both of us thought it looked like a great place to live. Your posts often show some interesting places.

Flagstaff is great for outdoor activities but it is a hard place to live economically, even in good times. Housing is expensive and there are few job opportunities that make it financially viable for middle class people over the long-term. We won't be able to retire here (even if we're able to retire).
