Bikey Halloween Costumes of the Past

These days Minecraft Zombie Pigman and Witch Darth Vader have their own Halloween costume ideas, but there was a time I could dress them up as whatever I wanted…and of course that was bike stuff. Here’s a quick stroll down memory lane of bikey Halloween costumes of yore…

I’ve only dressed my bike up once, as a salmon for 2013 Cranksgiving.

I’m all for dressing up bikes and can’t wait to see the entrants in the Xtracycle #XtraSpookyContest, but my days of bike decorating are done for now.

I’ve had THE BEST bike costume idea for three years, but it keeps raining on Halloween and I think it’s time to officially give up the dream…and share it here for closure: UPS truck and driver. I haven’t yet recycled the cardboard and donated the outfit pieces back to the thrift store, but that will happen soon. I’ll keep my two yellow Go Brightz–they were to be my flashing hazard lights for when I parked in bike lanes and made my deliveries. I finally took them out of their packaging to have down low glow on my road bike for the May Moonlight Mash in Eugene, Oregon this year.

Are you dressing up your bike or dressing up as something bike-themed this year?
