Batman Bikeboard Private Reveal!

Don't miss out on the redesigned Conway Bikeboard's! Four companies competed against each other by building their own model with the Conway Bikeboard. Last weekend, all four companies presented their new designs with a private Grand Reveal in Spanaway, Washington at the Puget Sound Go Kart Association. After the private Grand Reveal, the four designs competed against each other in three challenges. The three challenges were unknown to everyone until the reveal. 

Challenge #1: Agility:Each team had to ride down a 30-yard stretch of the track. The challenge though, was that every 10-yards, the team had to weave in and out of cones. For every cone that the team avoided the team earned 1 point and any cones knocked down deducted team points.
After each team weaved their way through the tricky cones, one winner stood. The Conway Bikeboard team.

Challenge #1 Results: Conway- 20 points, Seattle E-Bike-0, Garage Asylum-0, Huff Motorsports-0

Challenge #2: Short Distance Speed Race with an awkward item attached to the rider. The fastest team down the 30-yard straight shot would win 20 points. Each team had to draw a card and that card coordinated with a prop they needed to attach to their bike. Garage Asylum ended up with large, stuffed soccer balls. Huff sports had to drag a parachute. Conway Bikeboards had to tow a two-wheeled skateboard with an additional weight on top. Seattle E-Bike had to wear a purple kids backpack. With all the objects in tow, each bike raced down the 30-yard straight shot. Riding furiously forward. The first to fall victim to their towable item was the Conway Bikeboard team; the weight fell off of their skateboard and therefore disqualified them. The rest of the bikes continued on and the purple kids backpack passed the finish line first.

Challenge #2 Results: Seattle E-Bike- 20 points. Conway Bikeboards- 20 points. Garage Asylum- 0 points. Huff Motorsports- 0 points. 

Challenge #3: A Race Around the Go Kart Track. The teams had to race around the entire Puget Sound Go Kart Association track twice. However it is a lot easier said than done. The track had some hills and sharp twists and turns that provided a challenge for all the racers. The race was well-fought and quite entertaining to watch. Each team did great! At the end of the two laps, the rankings were as follows.

Challenge #3 Results: Seattle E-Bike- 40 points. Conway Bikeboards- 20 points. Garage Asylum- 0 points. Huff Motorsports- 0 points.

The Seattle E-Bike team is in the lead with just one Challenge of the Conway Bikeboard Build Off Challenge left and it requires all of your support! 

Challenge #4 Best Bikeboard Build: All the teams of the Conway Bikeboard Build Off Challenge will be revealing them privately at the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk tonight! The next time you can catch all the bikes will be at the Waterline Festival-Wheels and Keels-Car, Motorcycle, Wooden Boat Festival at Des Moines Marina July 24, 2016!

Seattle Bike Show, Fashion Show, Artwalk... Let's party!

Our last art walk ended up being a big hit!

Our live artist, Joshua Boulet, made his art debut in-store while folks enjoyed watching and sipping the vino and grubbing on healthy snacks. Boulet has been featured on the front cover of the Seattle Weekly numerous times specializing mostly in black and white, combining brush pen with a tricked-out Pilot pen he refills manually with Dr. Ph. Martin Black India ink. His work has wonderful detail, a distinct graphic-novel style and storytelling flavor. An additional mystery guest artist will be joining us for the first time as well!

Art By Jose Orantes

 If you are in Seattle, you know the town is buzzing with excitement under clear blue skies as we approach August, our best chance at weather for the year. That being said, we are excited to be a part of another month of the First Thursday Art Walk! (More information here: http://www.firstthursdayseattle.com/). During the summer time, this part of town is usually filled with life on the first Thursday of every month and we are proud to take part in it! Our first experience with these art walks consisted of Martin Selig's art, Seattle's best known developer and a lesser known, but just as intriguing, painter. This time we have changed it up a little bit...

Naturally, with our electric bikes that give people a chance to "ride like a kid again" as President of Seatte E-Bike, Brian Nordwall, would say, we wanted the art we debuted on our 18 foot high walls to represent that same concept. Something that is contrary than what most people would consider Seattle being, e.g. dull, gloomy, rainy. We happened to find someone who has lived here in Seattle for over thirty years who is one of the few that feels the same way as we do and his name is Jose Orantes. 


A Guatemalan artist, his early encounters with bridges, cars, and ferries of the Northwest gave him much to observe with his “ojos do extranjero” (eyes of a stranger). Bringing his love of color to bear on the Seattle landscape has resulted in a playful uplifting style he describes as “Urban Naïve.” A favorite theme is that magical moment, the union of day and night that he attempts to capture in his work.

 

For the past 11 years, Jose has worked with the artist in residency program of the Washington State arts commission, creating colorful murals in schools, community groups, and correctional institutions throughout the state. He enjoys sharing his love of color, teaching different painting, drawing techniques, and encouraging students’ feeling of self confidence so they can find their own style and become artists of tomorrow. Check out more of his art here: http://orantesgallery.com/jose/prints/

So come join us for the First Thursday Art Walk where you can enjoy some of Jose's art and check out some pretty neat electric bikes while you are enjoying some wine and aged cheese as our guests for the evening! We'd love to have you.
