Have Fun Storming New Castle

Whew! Well we do always like to go out with a bang and after the time Sydney gave us last night...

Wait, not Sidney, Sydney! The Australian cyclists came out in force to confirm their transportational sexuality. (some are purists but we hear many are also supportive of fucking on a train)

Tonight we are in New Castle for Australia's final screening. The Pacific Rim Job Tour: Part 2
Part 1 was when we showed Bike Smut on a beach in Homer Alaska, so now we only have to connect Asia and South America to complete the Chain Ring of Fire

For now we are content to conclude our first and possibly final visit to Australia. Yes, this might be the last time it ever screens in Australia. If you didn't know for the past 10 years we have averaged more than 50 shows a year (with most years being closer to 80 shows a year). This was made possible by a fervent commitment to share the surprisingly good art we were entrusted to present to you, our audience; also we were mostly homeless. But the years of perpetual touring have passed. Bike Smut is transforming; what it will become is, as of yet, unknown. Many excellent people claim they are ready to rise up and carry the flame for radical, human-powered, sex-positive film and performance. Still others have suggested that we abandon our archaic methods of in-person distribution and create a simultaneous, multi-city bikesexual webcast.

The future is unknown but at least for tonight you can have your home-grown bike porn... and watch it too!

Sometimes it's hot. Sometimes it's awkward. Sometimes it's funny. Sometimes it is something completely unexpected.

Like with bikes, the joy of sex is not trying to limit the experience but instead just being able to be present in the moment to enjoy the ride.
And its happening tonight in Sydney, Australia

Crossing borders with intention

The US government is about to shut down, again. Are you a "real American" who wants to keep immigrants out of "our land? Or, do you recognize that a mostly arbitrary line separates the US and Mexico and has become a tool to divide people?
FUCK BORDERS!   photo of JRart
Mexicali is just south of the border between Mexico and California. Calexico is just north of that border. While not the largest this is surly the most convincingly named twin border towns between the US and Mexico. Given their proximity and shared agricultural history one might expect them to blend together but differences in the culture couldn’t be more obvious. Even thou a simple chain-link fence is all that separates the towns they are microcosmic representations of their respective countries. For a dusty southwest town, the suburban sprawl around Calexico is oddly clean, sterile even. It seems devoid of any culture (although time there years ago was limited) and while the Sun scorches both sides of the border with equal indifference the US side feels less inviting, colder.
Meanwhile Mexicali has the classic virtues of not giving a shit about appearances from the outside of the building but focus instead on whats inside. Their markets are designed to induce engagement. There are other major differences between of course. Mexicali being 10-times the population of Calexico has its obvious effects, never mind the United States’ insane healthcare policies that have created a massive medical tourist industry (something this blogger knows far more than this article will cover).  How these twins grew apart to reflect their countries cultural identities is its own story worth telling. 
But not here.

We are here to fuck borders & we are here to fuck bikes.

exploit bikes for fun, not profit


Its not just a casual concern. We are feeling it too. There is so much stress and horror available without end. Our revolutionaries are not operating at their full capacity if they are not keeping their own fires stoked at home. So please try to answer the question: are you making space for the development of your mobilized, sexualized self?

Moreover, is this the crap Santa delivers when we neglect to actually ask for things we want?

It could just be another sign of the coming apocalypse (there are many, we know) but it could be a sign that you and we and everyone are letting bastards win. Whenever the d-bags, like Logan Paul have their way with pop culture they usually take something as beautiful and inspiring as the song "Handlebars" and pervert it into an vapid reason boost their fragile ego. So if we don't react to the inherent objectification with derisive scorn we end up letting our pure bikesexual waters become tainted and tho Bike Smut may be slowing down (... a lot) that shaln't happen on our watch!

For the appropriate background here is the original video by Flobots

And since modern culture eats sentiment and shits piles of post-digested manure, here is the cis/white/hetero/male scat you have been fearing was being squeezed out:

But we are not content to just be casual observers of media. We got a fucking degree in this shit and worked print, broadcasting, street media, trade journal, industries. We get to take a swift crack at this cracker's ass.


does it mean that Paul:
- can ride a bike without handlebars, although it never once happens in the video?
- can have sex without using his hands? A subliminal request for bondage?
- can ride a woman with a smaller mustache than him?
- can inspire women to throw off their patriarchal burdens by standing up for themselves?
- gets punched in the mouth so often he is secretly advocating for dental health?

Thankfully, rather than let this trash go on unaddressed the Flowbots provided their own retort:

So here is our  New Years resolution: To be thankful for our awareness of the radical, independent media that already exists! There's lots of it out there and we love it! We enjoy the Intercept and Democracy Now almost every day. Partly because they keep us reminded that some media outlets are not paid for by corporations that benefit from endless war.

We believe most people actually desire this kind of truth but are frequently overwhelmed by the never ending torrent of crap that is shoved down our collective throats. We can all do better and engage in more uplifting media that if it punches at all, it punches up!
(also, this really was posted on a Media Monday, which hasn't happened in years so there's something else to be thankful for)

NOTE: there is a good chance that Bike Smut will travel to Australia in February. Finally making the Pacific Rim Job Tour a reality and one step closer to world domination.

Ride Naked, Las Vegas!

Everybody has a body, born nude and soon thereafter wrapped in shame for its naked existence. Everybody has to be able to get around in a city packed with cars leaving room for few other options. Its time to take back our bodies and our streets. Its time for the 2nd annual Las Vegas World Naked Bike Ride!

This is a global event held to fight body shaming, patriarchy and
the world’s dependence on fossil fuels. The ride is "As Bare As You Dare" so wear as much or little clothing as you desire on your bicycles, skateboards, or any other form of human-powered transportation to celebrate human-powered locomotion.

Due to the Las Vegas heat, the museum will be hosting indoor activities including a craft tables, body painting, and more, beginning at 6, with the actual bike ride starting at 9 pm.

Crank and Grind has agreed to support riders before and during the WNBR. Minor bike repairs will be provided for by donation. Bad Ass Coffee and Hot Diggity Dog will keeping the riders fueled and ready for action and free water will be available to everyone.

ReBAR is hosting the official Las Vegas WNBR afterparty (pasties required) and will be giving a free beer to anyone on the ride. Bike Smut is providing technical support and coordinating entertainment, including a set by Fans of Jimmy Century as well as some special guest appearances and a yes, we even have a pool to cool off after the hot ride.

"For the second year in a row, The Erotic Heritage Museum is supporting the Las Vegas World Naked Bike Ride," said museum
Director, Dr Victoria Hartmann. "As a longtime Las Vegas institution, part of our mission is to advocate for sex positive culture. It's ironic that one of the most sexualized cities in the U.S.-Las Vegas-criminalizes non-sexual nudity. We hope to bring attention to these hypocrisies and help to change the laws in Clark County, bringing them in line with other cities like Chicago, Portland, and New York. We believe nudity as a form of protest should be a 1st amendment issue and thus a form of protected free speech."

Dr. Victoria Hartmann

Naked rides have existed a long time. The origin of the wheel is not exactly known but its safe to say that someone was naked on a wheel shortly after the wheel was invented. 5 thousand years later organized rides are common in select places such as Seattle´s Freemont Festival. Then in 2004 Conrad Schmidt asked friends to organize bikers and nudists across the world into what was officially named the World Naked Bike Ride. 13-years later hundreds of rides happen every year, some with only a handful of riders others with more than 10,0000 riders.
The WNBR is a protest against oil dependency and a celebration of body positivity. For years bikers have struggled to be recognized on the road. All too frequently the simple defense of ¨I didn´t see em¨ was enough to relieve an innatentive motorist of any culpability. Thankfully, the WNBR has a simple solution: RIDE NAKED & BE SEEN. If being naked is necessary to be safe on a bike then we are morally obligated to bike in the buff as much as possible.

¨The bike is the unabashed vehicle of the revolution. By cycling naked we declare our confidence in the beauty and individuality of our bodies and the bicycles’s place as a catalyst for change in the future of sustainability, transport, community and recreation.¨-

3 noches en Puebla

People often ask what is the biggest market for Bike Smut. They want to compare the meccas of sexy cycling: Vancouver, Berlin, Minneapolis, London, San Francisco, Copenhagen, New York, Amsterdam, Portland... Bike Smut has a an impressive history with each of these cities and each of them are quite bikesexually impressive in their own right.

For many years the most exciting shows, the most consistently stoked audience and frequent submissions came from, of all places, Salt Lake, the Mormon headquarters. Its easy to make assumptions about the reasoning behind why cities are different (eg in rains in Portland so people are more crafty). We are a reluctant to make any such assumptions, but for many years we have postulated that in cities where sex and cycling culture are accessible many of the people don't immediately see the value of Bike Smut. In cultures that are more oppressive, where people use terms like "biker", or "queer", or "queer biker" as insults. In these places it is a call to arms to say, "Fuck yes, I'm a queer biker and me and all my friends are gonna fucking party queer-biker style!"

But a couple years ago the mantle of most popular bikesexual city was passed on from Salt Lake to the most religious city of Mexico: Puebla. With more than 6 million people and nearly as many churches, Puebla is considered to be the most conservative city in Mexico.

Our last show there included more than 100 different submissions of bikesexual photography from various artists and the attendance reflected that vast cultural buy-in. More than 800 people filled the courtyard and cheered for more.

This weekend they have pushed the limits again with 3 shows on 3 nights completing our tour with 5 shows in 6 days!

La Primera y Ultima Vez en Chiapas!

Se presentará por primera vez en Chiapas "Bike Smut"

Martez 9 de Mayo
EL WAPANI Espacio Cultural
Calle flavio Paniagua #10, San Cristobal
Entrada Libre Cooperacón Consciente

Wow! We were all ready to give up on Chiapas. We have been trying to make a show happen there for many years and every year we shrug our collective shoulders and just give great bike porn to the fine Mexicans that clamor for it. We had tried many places but came up short. But finally our message got though, and just in time! With a week left we have FIVE shows booked!

The Wapani culture center should be an excellent place to watch Bike Smut. Even the Google Translation of this place sounds pretty fucking amazing:
Wapani is a space where everyone can enter, space in continuous change
It is a cyclope eye a collective view totally free and independent a quest for self-management believing that from the arts we can support any initiative linked to it.
Wapani according to the Native Americans is an act of exchange and generosity without expecting anything in return and in that definition we find our name.
Between bread and water is born the idea of Wapaní.un a game of words where everyone can somehow participate.
y en espanol para las pinche penderos que quieren buscar para problemas con la transduction:
Wapani es un espacio donde todoas pueden entrar,espacio en  continuo cambio
Es un ojo de cíclope una mirada colectiva totalmente libre e independiente una búsqueda hacia la autogestión creyendo que desde las artes podemos apoyar cualquier iniciativa vinculada con la misma.
Wapani según los nativos norteamericanos es un acto de intercambio y generosidad sin esperar nada a cambio y en esa definición encontramos entonces nuestro nombre.
Entre pan y agua nace la idea de Wapaní.un juego de palabras donde todos de alguna manera podemos participar.
Quieres mas opportunidad leer por que bicisexual?

¡Libertad de transporte y libertad sexual!
  • ¿Eres bici sexual?
  • ¿Crees que una mejor manera de transportarse y mejor sexo son la llave para una mayor calidad de vida?
  • ¿Tal vez piensas que la bici es sexy o que te sientes muy bien cuando andas en ella?
Bike Smut es el tour de un festival internacional de cine que celebra el transporte impulsado por energía humana y una cultura positiva del sexo.
La única manera de ver a Bike Smut es cuando se presenta en un teatro/cine, taller de bicicletas o en un sótano para una audiencia en vivo.
No hay DVD's a la venta y no hay proyecciones en medios. Esto es un reto para Bike Smut pero es la única manera de asegurar la privacidad.
Después de más de 1,000 proyecciones Bike Smut no ha tenido fugas. Mantienen la privacidad de los realizadores tan segura como ellos deseen.
Bike Smut es una experiencia compartida.
Normalmente vemos porno solos en los lugares más íntimos de nuestra casa (o para algunos, en el trabajo) rara vez hablamos de ello.
Bike Smut hace un llamado a una mayor honestidad en nuestra sexualidad. El sexo sucede. Podemos ignorarlo o aceptarlo.
¡Ver Bike Smut en un entorno social fomenta hablar de sexo, género y otros temas considerados tabú!
Bike Smut es cívico. Las políticas actuales están diseñadas para
reprimir la expresión sexual y la elección del transporte.
Bike Smut desafía esa tendencia mostrando la calidad de la expresión creativa y la cantidad de diversión inherente tanto al ciclismo y al sexo.
Ambas actividades (ciclismo y sexo) son elementos importante para un estilo de vida saludable y una agradable calidad de vida.

Oaxaca Bike Smut

The last time we were in Oaxaca (in the city Oaxaca) we were just able to stymie a full on bikesexual riot. We were staying at the venue so we knew that if the place burnt down we would be the ones with no place to sleep!
