Punk rock, clowns, bruises, and bicycles that are impossible to ride. Those are the starting points for Cyclecide, a self-described, “bike rodeo and human powered carnival for the endangerment of all” whose slogan is, “it starts with a pile of bikes…and ends with a pile of bikes”.

But oh, it’s so much more. You must experience the bike, “mosh pit of recklessness” yourself to truly understand the celebratory, interactive irreverence that is Cyclecide. Guaranteed to leave you smiling ear to ear.

Here’s a taste, my highlight of Maker Faire San Mateo 2011. Note that the crappy, cell phone video is totally in keeping Cyclecide’s style. See here for a more civilized video about Cyclecide by our friends at Make Magazine.
