Biking Across the Playa

More from Burning Man

Today I’ll just post one from Burning Man, even though I have been posting them in smallish groups. If you want to see more, explore the Burning Man category here on the site.

Daily Photo – Biking Across the Playa

I think I need a bike this year at Burning Man! And, I need an awesome bike… with all kinds of lights and perhaps some speakers where I can plug in my iPod. The only problem is that I am not handy. I have only a few skills, and none of them seem to include all the things that everyone at Burning Man can build except me. Wherever I go, I’m surrounded by all kinds of nice hand-made art exhibitions… fanciful and crazy stuff is everywhere. Sure, I’m handy with a stylus and a Wacom tablet, but that doesn’t do me much good in the desert.

So, if you come out to the playa and have an extra amazing bike sitting around, let me know. I’ll bring you some Belgian gourmet chocolate for the trade.

  • Cool effect. I think you need a Road Warrior type bike. Something with shields and spikes. That would be cool.

  • “The” Gino

    That is pretty sweet. A little layer masking I assume? Is the guy in the front left hand side the same guy in the middle background in the distance? Great concept. I’m going to try and rip the idea soon and act like I came up with it all by myself. Nah. Nobody would believe me anyway.
    Keep on rocking in the free world Trey.

    BTW – I got a “Rat Rod” Beacher style bike (matte black with red and white flames) if you wanna show up in style. Just sayin’

  • Great shot – this burning man set of photos keeps delivering the goods. I’m with Keith – a Mad Max themed cycle would be immense. Fail on that I would just get a brown suede trenchcoat and pretend I’m Mal Reynolds from ‘Firefly’ for the duration of my time there hehe.

  • Patrick Ahles

    Great effect!

  • Don’t forget about Belgian beer 🙂

  • hehe thanks!

    Andy and Keith – the more Mad Max, the better!

  • Simon Morris

    Cool shot Trey and manipulation, nicely done! Yeah, Mad Max themed MTB sounds great… best of luck with that idea 🙂

  • Looks like a nasty sandstorm at burning man 24/7… Not exactly camera weather! Thank god for backups haha.

  • cameron grant

    Ah so you went! Awesome! This past year I spent burn night on top of Trego mountin over by the train tracks.
    For 2011 I’ll be back inside the event most of the week so we must hook up! C.

  • Great idea for an image, Trey! Awesome. Bike idea sounds good… bet between now and then you can get a kick-ass bike built by someone.
