    its amazing how many come to black rock city with a bike and just abandon it when they leave. These are a small collection of discarded bikes that are to be donated to needy kids. Holy crap, thats a lot of disposable bikes














    that's all kiddies. Maybe others on the run will post up pix-- i know you have them!

    It is amazing how many bicycles are there. Does this guy go collect them from places or is this a designated "dumping ground" for art cars and bicycles??

    Nice pics by the way...You have some of the neatest vacations !!!

    I see the big blue Boat out there at burning man every year. And I bet my bike is in there somewhere. It got taken from me where I had set it at center camp and never saw it again. And trying to find your bike in a city of 55,000+ people is tough.

    i had the piump but no spare fuel lines or fittings or clamps. we hacked it together to drive home. McGyver lives! And Bill, the 1/4 acre of abandoned bikes are found on the playa and with an agreement with BM, LLC gather the bikes to be fixed up and donated to needy causes. Many are near brand new--seems in this disposable lifestyle (oddly contrary to radical self reliance on the playa) participants buy a bike for a one-way run, intending to just abandon it when event is over. The BLM requires the playa be restored to near pristine conditions after BRC, (even earth conscious hippies litter...) the bikes and art cars end up at his ranch.

    WOW Do as I say not as I do I'm glad yo had a pump, the clamps would be much easyer to find than the pump. So how does this guy get the bikes frm the ranch to needy kids?? That is a long bike ride back to Reno.

    am not directly sure, but he is in with the kiwanas and the reno bike project. we need to take a run out there again soon and use the ranch as a base camp for day runs into the back country.

    I would have loved to come along but sadly my Jeep is down for some repairs. It seems that somehow I ripped the driver front and passenger rear upper control arm mounts away from where they are suppose to be on last HLT run. Rewelding is not an option, Samco fabbing up some new re-inforced brackets.
