Welcome to EdmonTRON

4 10 2012

Calling out to E-Town – the Master Control Program is running amok. Get on your light cycles and head for the CPU!

Keith & Rob’s bikes, decked out for the occasion.

It was the first ever TRON Ride. Why? Well why not? It’s not like there’s very many 28 story monuments to the 80’s sci-fi classic out there for inspiration.

I’m pretty sure you can find the MCP around here, somewhere.

The game is light cycle. The object is to force your opponent into the light wall trail that your bike leaves behind.

This event called for my most modern looking bike (for once), so I decked out the Globe with lights & glowsticks.

Globe goes glow.

This is it rolls.

Chris on his amazing light bike / sound system.

If I had a helmet, I would’ve totally worn it for this ride.

And at the end of the night, everything de-res’ed.

Ride Like You’re Trapped in a 1980’s Super Computer

20 09 2012

This Saturday night we’re going back to the future. This ain’t just another retro theme ride. It’s the long awaited TRON Ride!

Don’t miss the TRON Ride this Saturday!

After escaping the insidious Master Control Program on our light bikes, we’ll reconvene at BikeWorks to party like it’s 1982, with retro arcade games and a screening of the first ever computer-animated feature film. No movie before or since has looked like TRON, and no bike ride before or since will look like the TRON Ride. So break out the lights and glow sticks and get ready to explore the digital underbelly of this computer program we call “Edmonton, ” cuz we’re ditching the game grid.

Be there, and be square.

TRON Ride: Saturday September 22, meet at 7:30pm at BikeWorks North, 9305-111 Ave.
