Masociclistas bike ride

September 7, 2012

The first ever Masociclistas ride!
COLORING, QUEERING AND MUXERIANDO THE STREETS

This ride is ONLY for our beautiful Queers OF COLOR, Gender non Conforming folx OF COLOR, Trans folx OF COLOR and Womxn OF COLOR family! Please invite friends consciously and respecting our decision to make this ride exclusive. This ride is QTPOC and WOC only.

The ride will be 10 miles at most with pit stops, we want folx to come out and not be scared of riding so this is a super friendly bike ride. Just make sure your bike is actually functioning! Bring tons of water, SNACKS!, food to share at Elysian Park POTLUCK, a print out of the map (in case you feel like leaving the ride before hand) and a HELMET.

THIS RIDE IS STILL IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING ITSELF SO THE SCHEDULE IS TENTATIVE AND WE NEED COMMUNITY SUPPORT! PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU CAN HELP OUT IN ANY WAY.

SCHEDULE

10:30am-12am: SO FAR WE GOT 3 scheduled workshops. IF YOU WANNA DO A WORKSHOP HIT ME UP PLEASE! It does not matter if its on the same topic, my guess is tons of folx will be showing up for the workshop portion so we will divide into groups and would love to have 2 ppl doing the same workshop topic

-@ceja libre from el hormiguero: skill share on changing and patching an inner tube! PLEASE BRING A PATCH KIT
-@Brieanne Buttner: skill share on intro to group rides and biking collectively
-@ana bel: how to check yo bike is safe to ride and basic bike mechanics. PLEASE TRY TO BORROW OR BRING SOME BIKE TOOLS if not thats cool pero it’s be nice if you could play around with some tools
-@CNTA: DO YOU KNOW HOW YOUR BIKE LOOKS AND FEELS?: connecting with your bike from an erotic view point, learning how it looks and feels. Documenting your bike in case it gets stolen and you want to make a report or flyer.

12pm- 1:30: Ride, we are still trying to figure out a route but it will be around mid-city/down town/echo park ish. The time is accounting for pit stops and flat tires, etc.

2:00-till the food is done: POT LUCK at Elysian Park! Bring some foods to share! Also bring your crafts as we will be having a mercado/exchange thingy at the park 😀

WHAT WE NEED:
>Folx that are BIKE MECHANICS or know about BIKE MECHANICS! changing a tire is a basic skill that you can share in the skill share or in case somebody gets a flat.
>People that have gone in bike rides before and could help facilitate a workshop on bike safety on da streets!
>Experienced riders to help block the traffic if necessary!
>PHOTOGRAPHER that can photograph while riding!
>FOLX bring resources about bikes and biking! from zines to info sheets!
>WE NEED SOMEBODY TO GET A BOOM BOX OR SOMETHING SIMILAR TO PLAY A HELLA QUEER PLAY LISTS!

Who are we?
Masociclistas is made up of a couple of brown queers making sexy wear and sex toys from bike inner tubes. One of us is currently biking from LA to Guatemala with RAICES ROOTS (raicesroots.org) and the other one is in Los Angeles biking around, connecting with awesome people and making stuff with bike tubes (http://www.facebook.com/lalobaloca)! We are all about reusing materials and transporting ourselves through our body power! We offer free workshops on BDSM/KINK for queer people of color and people of color allies. You can like us on FB http://www.facebook.com/masociclistas?ref=hl. THIS RIDE WILL BE ORGANIZED BY MASOCICLISTAS AND COMMUNITY FOLX SUCH AS CHRIS ALBIDREZ AND CNTA!

The first ever MASOCICLISTAS bike ride will have a rad photographer and videographer!! thanks so much CLAUDIA COY!!
