Bicycle Film Festival Winter Party

Lit bar on 2nd Ave, was packed with all kinds of bikers. Not the kind in leather chaps, no these bikers had their non motorized bicycles valet parked outside to celebrate the upcoming bicycle film festival.
Festival Director Brendt Barbur and anthem magazine hosted this pre-warm up party to celebrate 6 strong years of this unique festival. It premiered in NYC but has now spread to many countries all over the world and is expanding to a total of 10 cities for 2006. The festival will draw over 40,000 people. The event, is more than just films about bikes it is a weekend of bicycle related events and brings together all the diverse sub-cultures of the bicycle community. Inside the packed bar brooklyn brewery, always a strong supporter of the bike world donated free beer for an hour. Anthem magazines were distributed and the bar teemed with messengers, activists, bike film makers and bicycle fans galore. Bike riders were treated to valet parking by Luke Son, who hung out in the cold all night just to watch the bikes...Thanks dude. The Bike Film Festival is in NYC May 10-14th. The submission deadline for your bike films is February 17th. So get on it!
