Tall Bike Gathering
October 30, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Meet up outside Electric Bike Team (Bottom of East St, Top of Te Ara I Whiti / The Lightpath) and then it’s an easy ride down to the waterfront from there. Possibly a social beer afterwards.
Even if you don’t have a tall bike you can come along anyway!
Tall bikes are simply bikes welded on top of other bikes to make them tall. These are called “tall bikes”. Metaphorically speaking, you sit on these at least a floor higher than the usual riding position.
Tall bikes belong to the family of freak or art bikes. These are wheels that redefine the ride feeling and push the boundaries of what is possible. They are born in creative minds and on old bicycles. They stand out by their individuality and are exclusively home-built.
People ride tall bikes because they can, and also because the feeling is better – not to mention the view. Perversely, tall bikes are probably the safest velocipedal machine there is, as no driver wants to come within 30 feet of you.
