D.I.Y. BIKE FEST 29 - 30 September 2012, Utrecth, The Netherlands
"Yes, it will happen again this year: The DIY Bikefest!
Organized already for the 4th time, the DIY Bikefest’s is a perfect mix of serious politics and some serious fun. Gearheads of all sorts will be brought together by this event built of solidarity, respect, tireless volunteer work and a whole lot of bike oil.
This weekend will be for bike punks, bike freaks and lunatics on two wheels. For adrenaline addicts, seekers of positive destruction (we’ve got two words for you: BIKE WARS!) and the laughing spectators of this rolling madness. For enthusiastic newcomers who want to see, learn and experience themselves what it feels like to build your own cycling circus in just two days. In short: for you.
This year’s festical will once again give you the opportunity to:
-Work & learn. There’ll be workshops, bike wrecks, parts and tools at your disposal. And plenty of people to lend you a hand whenever you might need it!
-Have fun. Prepare for alley cat, (tall) bike games, bakfiets race with new obstacles and bike wars!
-Make a statement. Show ‘em some pedal power and come block the city streets with a critical mass! We are not an obstruction of traffic – we are the traffic!
-Enjoy. We promise you plenty of delicious vegan food and drinks, bands and DJ’s, bike pits and silly dancing!
Bike culture might already be considered widely accepted but cycling is about more than just that. More than the amount of bikes and bikepaths, or just simple transportation from point A to point B. Bikes offer us the chance to avoid the tyranny of the oil industry and to run away from the constant movement control of OV chip cards. It’s anarchy on wheels!
So come and join us for this year’s festival! But be warned: it’s addictive!
This year’s Bikefest will take place in Utrecht.
