The Bearings Bike Project, a Baltimore women, transgender, and queer-run bicycle collective, hosts a winter festival this weekend at the Brickhaus Art Space.
Described as “Biscuits, Bonfires & Bikes,” the festival includes a DIY craft market at the Brickhaus space at 2602 Greenmount Ave. from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, followed by live music and a bonfire from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Bearings Bike Project recently wrapped up its first season and festivities will help raise "enough money to survive the winter months." They will also be accepting bike donations and parts.
The Baltimore-based bands Neutron Bomb, Barrage Band Orchestra and Silence Kid are scheduled to perform.
The Bearings Bike Project mission from their website:
“Bearings will function as a safe space where everyone is welcome to learn about bicycle repair and maintenance. It will serve as learning environment, not only about bikes, but about culture, community, gender, sexual identity, and diversity. It will be a place where people can learn how to maintain, build, and/or fix their bicycles themselves at an affordable cost – making bicycling more accessible to all people.”
