Last night, conference organizers put on a great party in the old South Lake Union Armory building.

The highlight of the night was the mini-bike racing. By mini-bikes, I don’t mean kids bikes like the Zoobombers ride, I mean tiny bikes with wheels the size of cookies.

As you might expect, the hard-fought competition brought out lots of shenanigans and smiles. The claim of fastest mini-biker came down to two ladies (Kat Sweet and Sarah Bronstein) that work for Seattle-based Cascade Bicycle Club. Here are a few more of my photos from the action:
