1200 Bikes Donated To Burning Man’s Yellow Bike Program

1,200 Bicycles

1,200 bicycles have been anonymously donated to Burning Man 2007 to be used for the Black Rock City yellow bike program, a public transportation system where anyone can use the bikes to travel around the playa. The Black Label Bike Club is currently assembling and painting the bikes yellow and when the project is completed, Black Rock City will have one of the highest number of bikes per capita in the world.

UPDATE: Danger Ranger wrote us with an update saying that “In typical Burning Man fashion, the bikes are being painted green and stenciled with the message “YELLOW BIKE” in red paint”.
