Town Sponsors Costume Bike Parade

A costume bike parade? Sounds fun! To kick off Bike Month, the citizens of Harrisonburg, VA dressed up in costumes and rode their bikes to their downtown Turner Pavilion. Looks likes loads of fun!

During the month of May, folks are encouraged to ditch their cars and ride their bikes to work. It’s good for the environment, good for the body, and good for the wallet by saving on gas.

Our aim is to make riding a bicycle a safer and friendlier means of transportation and recreation. Whether to ride your bike to work, to save money, to preserve our environment, for exercise, or just for fun, see the list of activities below and join us to celebrate Bike Month this May!

Costumes from the London Marathon 2013

Let’s give a round of applause to these London Marathon runners who ran yesterday’s race in costume! Ha, this boggles my mind. I can’t imagine the stamina required to run 26 miles in a hot sweaty costume.

View more costumes on Digital Spy. Great job, Everyone!

Functional Fish Bowl Headgear

This guy is sporting some amazing fish bowl headgear. Ha, pretty crazy. And I like how it makes his head look so huge. Well done, Sir.

From what I gather, he’s known as Aquariumhead, and he started showing up at the Dutch festival Lowlands back in 2010. He’s so famous, someone even drew a painting! Very nice.

Update: Musician Joe Lawless wrote a song about him. Thanks for sharing!

2nd Update: Hmm, this song was recorded in 1993? So it’s just a coincidence? Weird (but cool).
