Bicycle Fetish Day 2011!

The City Reliquary sponsored Bicycle Fetish Day took place the last weekend of May. We blocked off part of Havermayer street and celebrated Williamsburg’s love of bicycles. Awards were handed out for Best Small Wheel, Best in Show, Best Vintage (we had one entry from 1938!), Best Handmade, and Best Beaterbike. In addition, we also raffled off a light blue bicycle at the event. The man who won luckily did not show up to BFD with a bike and rode off with a new one!

The after party, which was held in the City Reliquary’s back yard, was also a huge success! We had first time visitors as well as old friends. With beer provided by Brooklyn Brewery, we partook in bicycle themed events such as whacking a bicycle themed piñata, stationary bicycle races, and bicycle burlesque by Darlinda Just Darlinda, Divina Grandsparkle, Frida Schwinn and Miss Spoke.
