Yoga for the Bike in Us

Sun salutations, cyclists! This Sunday (November 14), Super Yoga Palace will open its doors to the BFDE group for a free hatha flow yoga class with poses and postures specifically “geared” for cyclists. Ha!

Stomping around Deep Ellum for more than a decade, Jessica Jordan, owner of Super Yoga Palace, spent her time bending people into enlightenment and touring with the Polyphonic Spree. During a break between tours, she decided to follow her passion for yoga and give to the community. She gifts Deep Ellum in the way of Super Yoga Palace. Located in the Life of Deep Ellum Cultural Community Center, Jessica wishes SYP to be a safe place for people heal, grow, connect, and build community friendships.

This sunday, all levels are welcome. From the, “I’ve never laid on a mat before,” to the “I can contort my way into a shoe box.”

There will be no ride, just meet at the Community Center for an 11 AM class. This is an open, free class, but tips for her time and kindness are encouraged by BFDE.

Thursdays at Taco Lounge

Just in! If you bike to Sol’s Taco Lounge on Thursdays, you’ll be getting half off margaritas and half of Fat Tire beers!  Big thanks to Ivan and the gang over at Taco Lounge.

Dig Deep: Bike and Brunch

Fall is in full swing and biking around Deep Ellum is spectacular. The only problem is it can be a little cramped sometimes. Let BFDE work you out.

Enter, Dig Deep. A bike and brunch designed to stretch and workout the legs before football on Sunday. So put on your workout gear, grab your water, and prepare to dig as you and fellow Deep Ellum cyclists speed to, around and back from White Rock Lake. And to top it off, we’ll finish the ride at La Grange for some brunch and mimosas. Scrum-diddley-umptious!

Where: Meet at La Grange
When: Sunday, November 7, 10 AM
What: A ride intended for people who want to bike faster, longer.
Where are we going? Bike to and around White Rock Lake, back in time for brunch at La Grange.
I’m not sure if I’m fast enough to participate: We don’t have spandex, hyper-light, full carbon anything, so no land speed record will be broken.  Just come out and we promise to not leave you behind if you promise to not leave us behind.

Bring Out Your Dead!!
