The return of Bike Prom to Fort Collins brought together an eclectic crowd of bike loving folks in the name of bikes, bikes, more bikes with a dance party on top. Together, Foco Bike Mob and Bike Fort Collins partnered to deliver a loud and proud Bike Prom 2022 with the Lyric Cinema as the quintessential location. Following a late afternoon pre-party at Stodgy Brewing on July 25th, a large prom peloton rode in parade fashion to the Lyric Cinema where things got started at 8:00 p.m. with vibes from mix master, DJ Madame Calypso. Headliner, Gora Gora Orkestar, brought the brass like never before while the bike prom court danced the night away under mild precipitation. To round things out, DJ Specific Heat kept the stoke high well into the night despite continued rain.
Other festivities of the evening included a “Best Dressed” crowning by Mayor Arndt, a photo booth, silent auction, and the drawing of the Spring Into Summer Raffle winner of a new e-Bike from Pedego Electric bikes.
We are so very grateful and honored to have the support of the following sponsors and supporters: Brave New Wheel, Tandem Real Estate, Edge Optics, Trek North, the Bohemian Foundation, North Forty News, and Joel Blocker Photography. Additionally, it truly took an army of volunteers to pull this off – Bike Prom tiaras designed and crafted by Connor Williams, silent auction orchestrated by Sarah Lamb, corsages and boutineers pieced together with care by Mitch Popko as well as a long list of loyal BFC names and faces who ensured all components of the event ran smoothly and without a single mechanical. Our volunteers are many and we thank you all for helping us pull off the Bike Prom dance party of the century in the universe. See you in 2023 for more good times!
