Bikes are old but revolutionary, challenging conventional modes of gray transport. They combine environmentally sound transport, healthy exercise, the motion of poetics, freedom in mobility, urban solutions. Increased bike activism in a period of economic and environmental crisis seems logical. This show again tries to combine the aesthetic with entertainment & political activist aspects of the bike with many songs expressing the joy and importance of the bike as a perfect mode of contemporary transport.
