Neighborhood Street Game
Location: City Streets + Bikelanes (Brooklyn and Manhattan, New York)
Part scavenger hunt, part guerilla art, and part bike race, Bike Friendly City is a game that arms teams with
spray chalk and stencils to
defend and create a pimped-out biker-friendly city. Play in the bike lanes and explore the streets in ways
only an urban biker can appreciate!
In Spring 2007, I created a street game called Bike Friendly City. It is inspired by my
passion for urban cycling and my frustration with things that make
that activity scary for my less adventurous friends. Run three times in 2007 and as part of the 2008 Come Out & Play Festival, the game
has brought together individuals from different bicycle sub-cultures to play nice
in our lanes (in a safe way!).
