Top of the Bike Porn World, Ma!

Behold, our northern climax (53 degrees north, specifically) of this The Backlash Tour... the most epic of Bike Porn Tours yet.

  • Edmonton, Alberta
  • Tuesday, May 18th
  • Bike Works
  • 10047 80 Ave, use the alley entrance just south of 80 Ave.
  • 9:30 pm


From Wikipedia:
The metropolitan area had a population of 1,034,945,[2] making it the northernmost North American city with a metropolitan population over one million. The 2009 civic census showed a population of 782,439.[4] At 684 km2 (264 sq mi), the City of Edmonton covers an area larger than Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto, or Montreal. Edmonton has one of the lowest urban population densities in North America

You hear that you American sprawlwads? The most sparcely populated city and they still have a thriving bike culture. Enough so that they were able to entice us. The good people at BikeWorks were so kind as to harass us into making sure we were going to head all that way north.

Hell yea we are gonna go there! It is home to North America's largest mall, West Edmonton Mall (which was the world's largest mall for 23 years from 1981 until 2004),[9] and Fort Edmonton Park, Canada's largest living history museum. How we gonna miss out on that?

They even had a friggin THUNDER LIZARD named after them! Where the fuck is our Portlandsaurus at anyway?

Plus they play polo. So... yea, we are in.

Then it is on to Calgary where we get to play a fundraiser for their Anarchist Book Fair! Damn has self liberation ever looked so sexy?
