This year we have COTY ON THE ROAD the INTERACTION SELECTION .So your bicycle have to do a cruise. Everybody gets a coty card with on the backside first, second and third place. And you must fill in the personal name of the person. So you must introduce yourself to the person and ask his name and perhaps something about his bicycle. So there is more interaction between the people, and you have a conversation with a person you never would speak to perhaps. On the Saturday we get your card back and on the end of the day at the Vliegenbos the Chopperdome have some nice things for first, second and third place winners. So everybody is in the COTY and can join the COTY.

Lelystad (Wazzup)- As another edition of Serious Request is starting to warm up, I was playing with this idea. Thinking about what could be a good way to collect some money, for the goal that 3fm Radio and the Red Cross have set this year. This is what I came up with.
Outsiders, people who are not familiar with custom bicycles, useally respond very positive when seeing a custom build or cruiser. And if you let them, they will ask you if they can sit on it, perhaps take it for a short drive...Well now is their chance!

On the last day of the Serious Request week, you can pick a custom you like, sit on it and have your picture taken for a little donation (and a nice memorie of that day).

Event info:

Serious Request 2011
De Beestenmarkt
Leiden, The Netherlands
Start: at noon (12:00 hrs)

Keytown Cruisers are supporting this event, because Leiden is their hometown and they also believe this a great way to collect some money! Since Saturday is the last day, the event will end with the announcement of the total that is donated all week. After that there will be a great show with various artists performing, so it will be a good time!

We hope to see a lot of cruisers out there!!!

Kamen (Anni Hilations Arms Music)- After being the singer of the magnificent Ropey Shags (later Chaos Kitten) for 7 years, I finally decided to make a change. I equipped myself with a guitar and started playing. That was in October 2010. Since then I’ve written 12 songs – and it doesn’t seem to wanna stop. So here I am now. Armed. With my voice and good conscience.

Because what I do now comes from my heart. No limits, no compromises anymore. And if it’s slow, then hell, yeah, it’s just f'n slow! And if it seems to sound all the same or too simple for one of them disguised experts, it’s just my fuckin’ cup o’tea, right? It’s just what’s bubbling up from the inside. All by itself. Why stop it? Restrict it? Love’s for pussies? Disgust and spitting for punks? Yeah, and I’m still workin’ it out my way! This way. So, what’s up? Wanna join anyway? You’re - really - more than welcome!
