Bikes at the Festival: The Bicycle Lounge, the Cycledelics, and You

One of the best and most visible DIY uprisings in the last few years has been the explosion of cycling in Riverside.  The Cycledelics bike crew helped to kick off the frenzy with costumed parades and epic beach rides, and more recently, The Bicycle Lounge has organized as a super-committed education and advocacy space and repair-collective (Inspired by both The Bicycle Kitchen and The Bike Oven in Los Angeles).

This flier rules so bad.

The groups have joined forces for Saturation at Back To The Grind starting at 11AM on Saturday, October 18.  From 11 to 12, they will be hosting a Mobile Repair Unit and teaching you how to fix and maintain your bike.  At 12, they ride out for a mostly-downtown tour of taco shops on what we call the Taco Sombrero Ride — all are welcome to join, but be aware that you ride at your own risk (and that you should bring your own sombrero and wear fancy duds). After tacos, we will hold a “slow race” and a pinata smacking in the parking lot behind The Grind.

At the event, they will have t-shirts available for purchase, spoke cards, lots of information about the organization and how to get involved, and a bicycle show — where you can check out the various bikes that they ride and learn why they love them so much.

Check out more information about The Bicycle Lounge and a new Cycledelics Video after the jump…
