Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

River Dance on Bikes

My roommate who is a modern dancer told me about this. Don't know if it will be good or bad, but I thought it was worth sharing.

June 11, 12, 18, 19; 12:30 to 2 PM
Ten professional biker/dancers will travel on the NYC bike path around the lower tip of Manhattan, connecting the East River to the Hudson River, stopping at seven destinations to perform an intricate ten-minute dance and to recreate music composed for the project by David Homan. The music and movement reflect both the synchronization and the dissonance that naturally occur throughout the city.
Bike paths from Canal Street on the East Side to West Side by the Boathouse. Performances at designated stops along the path. Bicyclists are free to follow performers on bike or meet them as an audience at one of the seven designated sites.
SITE 1 12:30 PM East Side Bike Path at Rutger's Slip and South Street
SITE 2 12:40 PM East Side Bike Path at Catherine Slip and South Street/Chinatown
SITE 3 12:50 PM East Side Bike Path at John Street and Fulton Street/South Street Seaport
SITE 4 1:00 PM East Side Bike Path at Pier 11/Slip A between Wall Street and Governor's Slip
SITE 5 1:20 PM West Side Bike Path at American Express Building across from Ground Zero
SITE 6 1:35 PM West Side Bike Path at Stuyvesant High School at Chambers Street/West Side Highway
SITE 7 1:50 PM West Side Bike Path at the Boathouse/The River Project/ Pier 25 below Canal Street

*(Times subject to change depending on weather and conditions).

On Sunday, June 19, at 2:00 PM, at SITE 7, The Boathouse/ The River Project, the choreographer, Mary Seidman and the composer David Homan, will meet with the audience afterwards for a Q & A discussion regarding the creation of this piece. The public is invited to attend.
