Bike Shop Birthday Party

I celebrated my 30th birthday with a party on Saturday night at J.C. Lind Bike Co. We biked there, of course, and I borrowed a huge trike, the Triple Lindy, to haul all the beer, wine and whiskey from the store.

Trisha rode Coco!

My shoes came off by the end of the night

There’s no better way to celebrate than surrounded by friends and beautiful bicycles. Huge thanks to Jon, the shop owner, for letting me use his space! My condo would have been way too small. Gotta love the local friendly bike shop. :)

    Looks like a wonderful birthday celebration was had! You all looked smashing and the cupcakes look delicious. What a fun idea to use a bike shop as the venue! Who came up with that and is that something bike shops are likely to do? I’d love to hear more about this topic.

    Happy Birthday again!!

      I came up with the idea, since I wanted to invite a lot of people, but my condo feels crowded with more than 4 people in it. I looked into having a party at a bar or restaurant, but that would be so expensive for an open bar. I realized I would need a space where I could bring in my own food and alcohol. A couple of years ago, I went to a cocktail party for PoCampo at J.C. Lind Bikes and it worked well because the shop is nice and not cluttered. I know the owner Jon well, so I decided to ask him and he was happy to host. I don’t know if this is something that bike shops are likely to do – it’s all about personal relationships.

    Happy Birthday, Dottie! Here’s to many more bike rides and smiles. You certainly take the cupCAKE for the most unusual place to have a party. Well done.

    It was a great time! Not that I expected anything less from a Dottie par-tay. :) I was happy to visit Jon’s shop, finally. Next time I get to ride the trike!

    Happy Birthday D.O.T.! There is no better decade (unless my 40’s start proving me otherwise. :) ). I think the only thing better could perhaps have been getting married at the bicycle store of one’s choice…:p
