Whether you know it or not, you want a sidecar. Really, you do. Okay, so maybe you can’t get one, but you know you want to hang out with a bunch of sidecar nuts. Really, you do. We’ll here’s your chance because the 42nd Annual Griffith Park Sidecar Rally happens September 15, 2013, in – where else? – Griffith Park in Glendale, Calif., just north of Los Angeles on I-5 and easily accessible by – what else? – sidecar!

Put on by Side Strider sidecar manufacturer Doug “Mr. Sidecar” Bingham, the Griffith Park event is a celebration of all things sidecar, from wacky homebuilt originals to fabulously restored vintage sidecars, racing sidecars, experimental sidecars – the variety of rigs on hands is simply amazing. And did we mention that it’s free? Exhibitors pay a paltry $10 to display their rigs (the money helps defray advertising and show costs – nobody’s making money on this deal), but attendees get in free. If you’re in the area you should do yourself a favor and go. And look for Doug; he’ll be the bald guy wearing a Side Strider T-shirt talking somebody’s ear off.

Sign up or get more info on the rally at the Side Strider web site or by emailing Doug at– or just call him at (818) 780-5542.
