Santa Cruz MAH: Freak Bikes this weekend

The Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History “Experience Metal” interactive exhibit this weekend will feature, among many other things, ridable art bikes.

On display is a compilation of tools, appliances, and cargo-carrying devices, all powered by the humble bicycle. Included are such creations as a bike blender, a hacked tandem independent drive, center-pull brake grabber tool, and more. Plus, join us for a gathering of Tallbikes, Freakbikes, Swingbikes and other wild contraptions that you can try out on the Test Track!

Much more is happening as well at the SC MAH:

Elsewhere: San Jose Bike Party TONIGHT; Pedal Fest at Jack London Square Oakland on SATURDAY. I’m sure there’s stuff happening in the Bay Area on Sunday, too.
