BikeBike 2013

BikeBike is under way in New Orleans this weekend – and there’s a storm coming in from the Gulf to keep everyone company.

The annual conference for bike collectives will be celebrating a very important milestone this year, as it is the 10th anniversary of the international gathering. Four days of workshops, bike rides, races, outdoor concerts, dancing, and a 10th birthday celebration will be hosted by members of the New Orleans Community Bike Project. This weekend volunteers from collectives and community bike projects from all corners of the globe will collaborate, share and teach each other what works and how to do it bigger and better. As a restless bike traveler, the value of community bike co-ops in cities across the globe is, quite frankly, immeasurable. For more information and access to an international collection of resources by and for collectives, visit www.bikebike.org.
