    Lots of great stuff going on this weekend including our ride to Governors Island for a picnic and Figment on Sunday at 1pm!

    Friday

    Rooftop Films presents Biker Fox. $10, 8pm @ Open Road Rooftops, 300 Grand St. – “Calling Frank P DeLarzelere III (AKA Biker Fox) a local celebrity is misleading–he is more an agitator than he is a prized local son. As a proponent of bicycles as a primary means of transportation, he is fighting an uphill battle against a Southern community that loves its cars, worships horsepower, and doesn’t always smile upon long haired, flamboyantly dressed eccentrics calling for cultural or lifestyle changes.”

    Saturday

    Rolling Orange Bike Shop Opening. 12- 2pm, 269 Baltic Street Brooklyn – Rolling Orange is introducing Dutch cargo and city bikes as common part of the Brooklyn streetscape.

    World Naked Bike Ride. 5pm, Grand Ferry Park Brooklyn – “Nudity is not requisite. Please join as ‘bare as you dare’ and use your body and bike to create the massive numbers needed to make this effective. Be part of the history and a new link to environmental awareness and activism in NYC!”

    DOB-C Rides Brooklyn Pride. 7pm, 14th st between 5th and 6th Ave – All riders and walkers welcome!

    Sunday

    Brooklyn by Bike ride to Governors Island! 1pm, Grand Army Plaza Arch – Governors Island has more than five miles of car free biking and is the home of Figment this weekend. Plus we will be celebrating our #bikenyc buddy’s birthday by playing croquet and eating and drinking to our heart’s content. New folks always welcome! This is a casual ride and great opportunity to meet like-minded bike loving folks as we explore Brooklyn and Governors Island. The ride is about 12 mi roundtrip and we suggest you bring food, water, games, ect to share. Join us!
