We <3 bikes here at FIPS (though wear your helmet or I'll find you and bad things will happen), so we were quite pleased to read that this weekend brings back the Brooklyn Bike Jumble: a flea market for bikes.
According to the Brooklyn Paper, the cycilng masses will be congregating on Sunday, May 16 from 10-4 at Washington Park on Fifth Ave at 3rd Street and doing the ol' swaperoo on bikes, parts, and handy accessories to help you run with Billyburg's finest. Bikes will be priced at pleasingly low $$ amounts, and there'll be a show of vintage bikes, too. We're into it.
But wait! There's more! Infomercial levels of awesome! The Fifth Avenue Street Fair will be going on, too. I can vouch that this thing is actually sweet, with live music and the companion Punk + Underground Record Fair at Southpaw (at which I've scored many an excellent record). Hopefully the weather will not make us want to drink bleach.
So get fit, get hip, and get on a goddamn bike while listening to records or something. You know, since our trains are dressed up in bus costumes for the next two weekends again, anyway.
