Cyclecide presents: The Loaded Warrior

‘A remake of the greatest action movie ever, The Road Warrior, A.K.A. Mad Max 2. San Francisco’s Cyclecide Bike Rodeo replaces cars with bikes and gas with beer. A film by Jay Broemmel, Taylor Fitzgerald, and Steven Bellesiles. Warning: contains violence, nudity, drunkenness, & exploding Pomeranians.’ This writer managed to be in most of the shoots and successfully avoid the cameras, as usual. Still got the scars from swinging an authentic metal spiked mace above my own head, and making contact with it — KUNK, that painful meat-smack sound — during the beer-invasion scene. Good times!

NOLA: Black Label Ridin’ Dirty NYE ’09

To: Cyclecide Bike Rodeo From: Summer RE: report on Black Label Ridin’ Dirty NYE’09 Hi Cyclecide, Miss you clowns. Even so, the new life in New Orleans is finally grinding into gear. There hasn’t been much time to ride bikes, which is the very saddest thing that has happened since moving here, which is good. But bad. We wanted to make a swing bike with J.T. from the Stinkin’ Linkin crew, but then work and house and yeah. You know how Capricorns are. Here are some pictures from Black Label’s Ridin’ Dirty event, courtesy of the amazing Todd Seelie / Suckapants. He took a lot of winners, which is good, because this writer’s camera committed suicide the day after we went to the swamp with Momma.
