Recyclinik - Sunday, May15, 2005
The Recyclinik was put together by Cyclo Nord Sud of Montreal, an organization that collects unwanted bikes and parts and sends them to South America. The purpose of this event was to create awareness for their upcoming bike drive on May 23. Other groups involved included the re-Cycles Bicycle Co-op, HPVOoO, and Mountain Equipment Co-op.
HPVOoO had folks trying out some of their odd and interesting bikes in the parking lot, while the "band with no name" provided music and the Garden Spot provided food. In the weeks before the event, bike art was created to show what can be done with old parts and bike bits. These were sold to raise money to cover costs involved with shipping the donated bikes. The works in progress can be seen at my Bike Art page.
