Bike Month NYC


Biking is always in style. As many of you may know, May is Bike Month NYC. Transportation Alternatives has organized tons of fun rides (Coney Island, Manhattan Evening, Bridge Battle 2, etc.) and biking events (Queens Borough President’s after-work snack, bike repair workshops, drawing the bicycle with Taliah Lempert, etc.). There is still time to get out your fixed gear bike and partake in the fun. If you don’t have a bike you can still join in the fun by checking out the Bicycle Film Festival. This year’s standouts are: Mash a film about fixed gear riding in San Francisco done in a board sports video kind of way; B.I.K.E., which focuses on Brooklyn’s own Black Label Bike Club that designs and fabricates their own stacked bikes; and Claude Lelouch's 1965 For A Yellow Jersey, a lyrical documentary about that year's Tour de France set entirely to a jazz soundtrack.
