Well, the good times just keep rolling in for this bike riding girl. Yesterday was the 8th Annual Bicycle Fetish Day in the neighborhood and I had a great time with a group of local bike enthusiasts. Modified bikes, hand-built bikes, pimped out bikes, commuting bikes, hauling a ton of shit bikes – every kind of bike you can imagine was there to celebrate the fetish-ness that often comes from some of us who sink our souls into biking. It’s a day to embrace the distinct subcultures that exist within the larger bike culture.

It’s put on and hosted by The City Reliquary who manages getting the block party in place and opens their backyard for a BBQ as part of the day’s activities. I had a lovely time walking around and talking with fellow bike lovers. It was a nice tie in to my week on the Climate Ride and I was able to share with people my recent experiences and encourage them to go online and read about the ride.

And there were supporters and artists alike in booths, providing biking information and biking art for the participants. Here’s a list of some who were there: BIKENY, Transportation Alternatives, Times UP!, Taliah Lempert Bicycle Paintings, Outlier Tailored Performance, Neighbors Allied for Good Growth, Coast Cycles, Horse Cycles, Velo Brooklyn Bushwick Bike Shop, Nona Varnado, and Vaya Bike Products.
