Burning Man Bikes

Burning Man starts this weekend-

The festival temporarily creates Black Rock City. Last year it boasted 50,000 residents for a week.

Am I going to Burning Man? No, but I'm starting to think I should.

Gas powered vehicles are not allowed within city limits unless they are modified art pieces. The scale of the city is unreasonable on foot, so most people turn to their rusty old bicycles.

These freaks accidentally created America's largest car-free zone!

This year I prepared a fleet for my friends who have a camping trailer and golf cart specifically for this event.

Which rusted chain will snap first?

Burning Man is many things to many people. I see 50,000 bikes and I like it!
