Sydney Bicycle Film Festival: One of a Kind

A mini trip to Sydney was very successful. I did all that I was planning to do. It's too much to fit into one post so I will have to break it into 2 posts. This post will be about the Sydney Bicycle Film Festival that DD Kit is involved in organizing. It was a week-long festival full of activities involving bicycles, but the films are the main aim of this festival. We only attended a couple of events while we were there. One of the events was RIDE: Life in the Bike Lane an exhibition of one of a kind bicycles. We are very proud of Kit and the team for what they did. I'm sure that it's not easy organizing anything in Sydney. These guys did a great job. Congratulations Kit and the team.
Here is Kit with her creation of Pinata bike. The idea was that the organization gave wooden bicycle frames to the artists to decorate and display the finished bicycles at the RIDE exhibition. 
These are some of the bikes I really liked on display. I wish I had taken photo of them all, but the venue was packed to the brim that I couldn't get to see all of them close. One of my favorite bikes was the one with Aboriginal style paintings on it. Click on the above photos to enlarge. I would have loved to buy it, but I don't think I could afford it and I would need to find somewhere to display it too! 

Have you seen Bike POLO game before? No, not me either. One of the events they had was bike polo and I thought it was a very exciting game to watch. Above is a poster I picked up from there. Very cool uh?

Kit and some of the team members. I think they had so much fun and it paid off for the hard work they have put into organizing the festival. Well done guys! 
Mr NJN was joining in for a free beer at the exhibition evening. The noise level was a bit high so smiling was the only way to communicate lol! 

It was great to see Kit again. The last time we saw her was in July. We do chat on Skype or FB or gmail chat. I can always find her somewhere online. Looking forward to have Kit home at Christmas and it's not too long now...!

Oooh that's great all these bikes. But I thought that riding a bicycle was typically Dutch (or Cinese ;-) )
But never in my life I saw Bike-polo !!
(Is Kit your daughter ...? Lovely lady !)

Kit is looking as bubbly as ever and seems to be enjoying the big smoke. Nice photo of her and her DD.

I like her piniata bike.

Hello Nat,

What a fun day out. Congratulations to Kit and her friends. I couldn't imagine doing bike polo-to much concentrating.

Happy days.

The bikes were fun to see, I thought they were all creative and had a chuckle over the skeleton one. It would have been wonderful to catch up with Kit, she's very photogenic.
