As it turns out, Twitter could handle an Arab Spring but it couldn’t handle Saturday’s Miami Bike Hunt, which sent 100 two-person teams of prize-hungry cyclists throughout South Beach to conquer a list of whacked-out challenges (for example, “Photograph a lemur in a diaper” — turns out there were two on Lincoln Road).

From G-Spot to G-Spot, on two wheels

By | November 23rd, 2011 | No Comments

Bikes, art, beer. That’s the short and skinny of the G-Spot Bike Ride this coming Saturday, Nov. 26, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Led by the TM Sisters, the ride will stop at new art installations throughout Downtown, Wynwood, and the Design District. The installations are part of the G-Spot Tour, a Grolsch-sponsored project curated by contemporary art curator and writer Claire Breukel that gave 10 Miami artists, including las hermanas TM, free reign to create whatever their aesthetic hearts desired. To learn more about the artworks, the project, and how you can win an iPad 2 just for taking a photo, visit gspotartproject.com.

The ride on Saturday will end at The Stage for a round of complimentary Grolsch. The after party is open to one and all, so feel free to drop by The Stage whether you come on the ride or not. Of course, you should come on the ride, if not for the art then to work off the Thanksgiving turkey/tofurkey. To RSVP and learn more details, visit the G-Spot Bike Ride event page on Facebook.
