I wanted to catch more of the Cyclesomatic Bike Festival, but it happened to fall on one of the crappiest weeks at work.

Fortunately, deadlines were met and I managed to squeeze a little time out this past weekend to catch the tail end of it. The one event that I really wanted to catch was the Tyler Street Block Party hosted by the Oak Cliff Bicycle Company and Cube Creative — mostly because my wife Wendy Woodruff-Wezensky had a few pics that were included in their art show.

We had a great time seeing all the bikes, watching the hula-hoop folks and checking out all the great art. DART was there with bus/bike rack demonstrations and swag giveaways. We also got to meet Robertus Van der Wege and saw some of his great bike art at the Mighty Fine Arts gallery. He had more sculptures at other locations, but we only caught the one at Decorazon on bishop street the following day. BTW, we loved David E. Peterson’s work as well (also at Decorazon).

They were also setting up for a virtual, stationary bike race, but the kids were hungry and the tasty Urban Dog hot chocolate wasn’t hitting the spot, so we left before that got kicked off.

  3. looks like a great event. hope some of the pictures sold.

    wonder if you or any other riders out there could support a fellow rider named Charles? his story about overcoming smoking/addictions through riding has become a finalist in the mutual of omaha, aha moment campaign.

    if enough of us vote for him he’ll be featured in their 2010 ad campaign.
    take a look at his story: http://www.ahamoment.com/vote/charles

    it’s only :30 or so and is a nice tribute to power of riding.

    thanks for looking

    • Be careful, cam. Although this is a good cause, your post is a bit off topic and appears a little like spam. Fortunately, you actually took the time to comment on the post.
