Local Art Inspired By Extraordinary Rides
Each year, Phoenix Bikes chooses a bike-related theme as the focus of our celebration. This year the show will highlight “Extraordinary Rides” experienced by riders from the DC Metropolitan area. We asked the Metro area community for stories about their most extraordinary rides and we chose seven of the most interesting rides to feature at our show.
In one featured ride a
across Southern Sudan to help treat the crippling effects caused by the
worm. In another, three women biked from DC to Montreal to learn about
community gardens and to make a documentary film on the issue. As
part of the event, local artists will display artwork inspired by these
other Extraordinary Rides. In addition to the seven featured
rides, every ride submitted will have a display at the event.
