Bikes & Beauty 2018

Enjoy Bike Month’s Greatest Night!

If you attend one event during Bike Month it should be the Bikes & Beauty 2018 Fashion Show at the Bike to Work Day After Party on Friday, May 18 from 6 – 9 PM at the SLO Guild Hall (map). People from all over SLO County come together to watch members of our local bike community strut their stuff on the runway in an always amazing array of hand-made DIY bike fashion. Many of the items worn in the fashion show will be available for purchase after the show!

Come groove to the satisfying sounds of DJ Malik, enjoy tasty food from Mee Heng Low, beer from Central Coast Brewing, wine from Rabbit Ridge Winery and Diringer Estates, cocktails by T-Dubs, Whalebird Kombucha and a sweet variety of delicious desserts. Entry is FREE, beverages and food are available for purchase with sales benefiting Bike SLO County.
