BikeCraft is back and we couldn’t be happier. This event — which is open all weekend — celebrates local, bike-inspired arts and crafts. It started in 2005 and has come roaring back this year thanks to an organizational boost from our friends Elly Blue and Joe Biel from Microcosm Publishing and Brian Echerer from Velo Gioielli.

Last night was a special preview party and benefit for event host The Bike Farm (1810 NE 1st, two blocks from Broadway/Williams). I swung through to chat with vendors and see the wonderful things they make and sell.

Below is just a sample…
