July 25: Meet NYC’s New Ultimate Utility Bike + Benefit Streetsblog

bike_design_project

Come out to DUMBO next Friday for a bike design party where all proceeds from beer sales will benefit Streetsblog and Streetfilms.

The new bike at the center of the party is the NYC entrant in Oregon Manifest's 2014 Bike Design Project. Allow me to explain a bit more: The non-profit Oregon Manifest is putting on a bike design competition, inviting teams from five different cities to design the best urban utility bike they can. The winner will be decided via online voting and could get a production contract with Fuji (here are the criteria for the competition).

At the DUMBO Loft next Friday, you can get up close and personal with the prototype from NYC-based design firm PENSA and Horse Cycles. Plus, you can feel really good about visiting the bar repeatedly, because all beer sales will be donated to Streetsblog and Streetfilms.

We're looking for a few good volunteers who can help out at the event. If you'd like to donate your time, email Kelly Donohue with the subject "bike party."

The venue is a special landmark in NYC livable streets history -- it's right next to the Pearl Street Triangle, one of the first parking-to-public-space conversions in the NYC DOT plaza program. Here's where to go:
