the loud and lit ride is also going to be a benefit for our good friend and fellow northfreaker Jacobo, who recently broke his jaw after having a steer tube snap at speed.

so to help soften the blow of his medical bills (especially since he’s got a sub-1yr old), we’ll be selling drinks, light up toys and noise makers on a donation basis, come help a brother out!

also expect rediculous and potentially dangerous games tbd. but chu’ know we’ll be doin the whiplash up good and proper, so get your grippy shoes on!
