Last weekend we helped our buddies over at CHOPCULT.COM put on their second annual Slab City Riot. These guys are not your typical Sturgis, bagger, old guy, American Chopper fans. (Not that there is anything wrong with that if that is your scene.)
This is about hand built old school bikes. Guys that love to work on their own stuff, ride hard, and play hard. Dirt camping, loud live punk rock and good times.
SLAB CITY is the place featured in the book and film INTO THE WILD.
Strange place this is for sure. Slab City is filled with many people who have checked out of the mainstream for one reason or another. During the winter snowbirds come in motor homes to escape old man Winter.
Add 1500 Chop Cult members and, a Pallet of free Pabst and you have an eclectic mix of good times for sure!
There was an event named the Coctagon where 24 men enter the ring armed with helmets and whiffle ball bats. Last man standing wins $500.00. Mayhem ensued.
