The Freegan Bike Workshop has been working hard towards re-establishing their awesome programs for the communities of Brooklyn, specifically Bed-Stuy, since the loss of the 123 Space. This “fun-packed day of celebrating, fellowship & bicycles” will include games, food, free tune-ups, workshops and dancing. No doubt this will get the FBW back in the swing of teaching kids how to build their own bikes and give the cycling community another desperately needed workshop space! Come out and show your sup
– bike decorating!
Kids and adults are encouraged to attend with or without their bicycles. â™¥ â™¥ â™¥

Bronx FUTURE GREENWAY RIDE
This Sunday, March 30, you will have another opportunity to delve into Bike Month activities in the Bronx with a ride specifically designed to envision the future of the Bronxâ€™s Harlem River Waterfront Greenway! We will be meeting outside the Cypress Avenue Station (6 Train) at noon and riding over to check out the current state of the waterfront on the Bronx side. From there, we will be crossing over to the Harlem side of the river, and making our way along some of the newly completed greenway along the Harlem River. Experiencing the contrasting routes along the waterfront will help us to visualize how amazing and important it is to advocate for a similar waterfront greenwayâ€”on the Bronx side of the river. The ride will be relatively short and slow-paced, so please feel free to bring riders of all ages and abilities along for the ride!
BIKE PUNK ROCK show.
It might be a wet one due to rain but tonight:
Title: Pirate Radio Dance Ride
Forget about OJ or Roe vs Wade. This is the biggest thing to hit our judicial system. Two NYC bike messengers are on Judge Judy hashing it out over a custom bike. Hilarious.
Chrome bags and apparel out of San Francisco knows how to appreciate their messengers. They figured if couriers can ride bikes in the hills of this West Coast gem, they might as well be able to ride a barrel connected to some ropes. That’s right they threw an old fashioned rodeo right in their store.
They also know how to appreciate the feet of us riders. They’ve just come out with a new shoe…the Toburk Slip-on.
The Tobruk is filled with details that make riding in them easier and the shoe, itself, tougher. Those features include:
Â· Low profile design to better fit into a toe cage
After leading the way in both bag and apparel design and manufacturing, footwear was the natural extension of Chromeâ€™s commitment to building durable, functional products that last. It just so happens that they look great too.
To any culture, there is always an underground…then there is the “really” underground. Maybe like the weather underground.
Somethings are best left to the imagination, such as the “Landlords Cycling Club.”
Check out this video of a book about the Landlord’s vintage messenger culture:
If your confused about this book, the landlords or the current state of track bike culture, look no further then this video which explains it all:
Both screenings will be at the Albert Maysles Institute in Harlem
THIRD ANNUAL DOGGIE PEDAL PARADE
Sunday, May 23, 2010
Must see photos from last year’s ride:
Bring your dog and bicycle to third annual Time’s Up! Doggie Pedal Parade. We will ride our dogs in baskets and trailers attached to our bikes, listen to doggie tunes playing on the “music bike”, and end at Washington Square Park for a party complete with free snacks and drinks for all, including tofu dogs & vegan chocolate bars donated from Earth Matters & Rescue Chocolate.
The ride will highlight bicycles adapted to transport pets (see 5/20 Pup Your Ride workshop) as well as the benefits of adopting homeless animals.
If you don’t have a dog you’re encouraged to still come on the ride or join the Safety Pooch Patrol to help escort the ride.
If you don’t ride a bike, you and your dog can still join us at the end-of-the-ride party at Washington Square dog run, starting at approximately 3:30 PM. Rain date May 30, 2010.
To prevent any Ruff Riding and for the fun and safety of the group, non-social pets are asked to stay at home.
