Jesus vs. The Easter Bunny: On Bikes!

Jesus and the Eater Bunny take to stationary bikes at the Roller Rumble Series at Bend's Silver Moon Brewing.

And you thought that was a misleading headline, didn't you? But here is proof that on Easter Sunday at Silver Moon Brewing Co., Jesus and the Easter Bunny took the battle for rights to the holiday to the bicycles. (Photo by Brian Bulemore with Abacus Photography)

Actually, this wasn't the real Easter Bunny nor was it actually Christ. Shocked? Yeah, so was I.

Rather, this was the headlining race last weekend at the ongoing 2010 Roller Rumble Race Series, which continues this Sunday at Silver Moon. At the event, racers sit atop single-speed bikes on rollers and race for 500 virtual meters. Winners of each night's events win prizes and spectators are welcomes -- because there's nothing like the mix of sweat and beer for some end-of-the-weekend entertainment.

Registration is at 6:30pm and races start at 7pm. Admission is $3 for spectators and $5 for riders. There are four more weeks to check this out, but we're not guaranteeing that you'll see Jesus there...or the Easter Bunny.

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon

    • Dec 2, 2011
    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
