The FC Bike Library's annual bike prom is going to be an epic evening of cycling themed fun and calamity! Come join us for a night of bikes, beer, and dancing!

Drifter, Fort Collin's most FUNK'd up DJ, will be once again spinning the beats, and we will have a complete tap takeover of Fort Collins breweries - yep, that's 12 local beers on tap!

Come dressed in your most outrageous prom outfit. This year's theme is all the good and bad from 80's and 90's cycling! That means neon! Huge hair! Spandex! Cycling jerseys that look like your grandmas wallpaper! (Greasy mustaches encouraged)

Tickets are $20 each, $35 for two (bring a date!), and include your entry to the prom plus one beer on us!

All proceeds benefit your friendly neighborhood Bike Library. You can snag your ticket at Cranknstein or at the FC Bike Library Hub in the Downtown transit center.
