Las Bruja Alleycat and Bike Kill 2007

The mass of masked alleycat hooligans met amongst the steps of Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn on Saturday, October 27th to compete in the 13th annual Halloween race.

It had been raining most of the day. The roads were slick and sometimes muddy, many riders were soaked and a cool breeze floated in the air.

Comprised of angels, zombies, witches and ghouls - the race provided great amusement to many Brooklyn and New York City passer-byers.

The check-points on the manifest were numerous and highly circuitous from 7 Hanover Square in the Financial District to the 107th Street Pier off the FDR Highway. We finished a number of hours later at Sanford & Willoughby in Brooklyn for the 5th annual Bike Kill Party.

Bike Kill is best described as a crazy day of partying, biking and mosh-pit madness. Located on a cul-de-sac behind Home Depot, the event is host to every imaginable two wheel, three, four and six wheeled contraption known to man.

One bike had a functioning flame thrower, while many were chopped-up and welded together to form multi-tiered tall bikes.

It was a righteous event and a must for anyone that loves bikes and a good party. Until next year...
