You might not know Helena Elko but she is best known for: her 12 inch from 2001: yo-lena, her illustrations of palm trees and her lioness hair.
Her friends are doing something really special for her and need the help of the NYC cycling community:
Shhh… don’t tell Helena Elko…
we’re planning a special event in her honor, just because we miss her.
Bring your bike and a white T-shirt and meet us at the S. 5th St. entrance to the Williamsburg bridge at 3pm on Oct. 11th. Everyone participating will receive a “boys on bikes” flag and “Helena inspired” props and messages. Then we will bike across the bridge, video the whole thing, and end up at a surprise party location where we’ll send her the video postcard.
It’s open to everyone, come join us even if you don’t know Helena. Contact us if you don’t have a bike, yet want to participate- we can use your help.
Check out the website for more info and to contribute your ideas.
