The award for best event logo of the summer so far has to go to Bike to the Ballet -- coming this June from the Portland-based Oregon Ballet Theater.
But far from just a catchy logo, the event looks like a lot of fun and it's great to see a new (non bike-specific) group get engaged with the bike scene (the event is "supported by" the BTA, PDOT, Bike Gallery, and Cycle Oregon).
Bike to the Ballet is is not just a chance to see a professional ballet at a reduced cost (enter coupon code "lycra" when you buy your $20 ticket), but event organizers have gone the extra mile to make bike-lovers feel right at home. After all, there's a clear connection between bikes and ballet -- right?
OBT spokesperson Roslyn Barfield says almost half of the OBT staff and dancers are cyclists "in some way shape or form". The event website adds,
"We also share a special affinity for lycra and dry-wicking fabrics. But most importantly, we too have some of the best legs on the planet."
