Cyclist are Bloody Vampires
So Australia is pretty neat and sweet for bikes. The guys from Knog over there introduced me to this amazing blow-my-mind damn-you-pacific-ocean-getting-in-the-way event called the Melbourne Bike Fest. It's a clean, modern, youthful and design-centric bike expo thingy going on from the 24th to the 28th in Melbourne.
Their program promises: "Bikefest features art, design, forums, workshops, markets, music, screenings, bike rides and more. It is a non-competitive, celebratory event for bike riders of every ability and riding style."
In particular, I'm hoping their seminar on Cultural Shift: Women and Bikes is uploaded TED styles to the interweb.
And they have promotional trailers that feature vampires. I think this shows their legit quest to strive for normalcy and popularity- vampires are like the biggest meme going on out there right now.
Best joke about vampires and bikes curtsy of the Super News at around the 4 minute mark.
