The yeti has gone cultural.

Or, to put it less cryptically, UpaDowna is now offering bike tours of First Friday events downtown. For $10, you're given a bike and a helmet for the evening and a leisurely ride that hits opening receptions, performances and more.

The inaugural run is tomorrow, and will hit the new batch of Art in Storefronts artworks, Art Hardware's grand re-opening, Orchard Ovens for the opening of Abstracts and a streetside concert by Burn the Maps on Bijou. Future tours — running the first Friday of each month until October — will cover different events, but they'll all start at 5:30 p.m. at CityROCK at 21 N. Nevada Ave. Advanced registration is required at 886-0088.

And don't forget that the Downtown Partnership has also launched a series of art tours that happen monthly, the Spaces//Faces//Places series that meets the second Saturday morning of each month — focusing on a rotating group of topics: historic buidlings, significant founders and contemporary artwork downtown — and the even newer Happy Hour Tours that happen the third Thursday of each month that unite local art history with drinks from Phantom Canyon.
