A Bike of Yarn - It Could be Yours

One of the most colorful - like, actually colorful - bicycles you'll see during Cross Culture, or perhaps all weekend, is the creation by Bombing Yarn Over Bend, a local "knit graffiti" group.
The bike, known as the Lantern Rouge, was created for the 2009 edition of the Cyclocross Nationals and is now being auctioned off during a silent auction at the Oxford Hotel from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday night. The group says the bike is "mostly rideable" and all proceeds from the auction will go to Bend's Community Bike Shed. If you snag this creation, your bike won't be the fastest out there, but it will certainly be the coziest.

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
