Naked Karate Girls and Bikes

Ya Ya, I know that since the word naked was in the title you opened this up.  Or just maybe it was because it was a combination of naked, girls, and bikes.  Who am I kidding.

Now that I got you here you should know that the title is spot on, the band Naked Karate Girls will be playing at the Fraze and you can not only get VIP bike parking but also a free ticket if you ride the bike to the event.

Here is the skinny:

The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC)  is sponsoring the Fraze Pavilion’s $2 Tuesdays Concert Series.  As a special bonus,

MVRPC will be providing FREE, secure/preferential bike parking for cyclists and up-close/preferential parking for those who carpool to these family-friendly concerts.

Spaces are limited to the first forty (40) cyclists (total of 40 cyclists) and the first twenty (20) carpools (carpools must have exactly 4 people in them).  Everyone who registers for the special bike/carpool parking, and actually uses the bike parking/carpool parking, will receive a FREE ticket to that evening’s concert.  They must check-in with a Drive Less Live More team member upon arrival.    Addition prizes and goody bags will also be given out to participants.

Bike parking will be located near Lincoln Park Boulevard and Shroyer Road on the Lincoln Park Plaza.  Look for the bike racks and signage.

Here’s how it works:  Concert goers MUST pre-register for the special bike/carpool parking online and select the concert you’re interested in attending.  Complete all fields of the on-line registration for whichever parking space (bike or carpool) you’re interested in.  Once registered, you’ll receive a confirmation email so you’ll know you’re all set for the free concert ticket and free reserved parking.  Pre-registered bike and carpool parking open at 6:00 p.m.  All $2 Tuesday concerts begin at 8:00 p.m.
