::: Bitchen @ the Bicycle Kitchen :::

I have been documenting "Bitchen" - an all ladies night at the non-profit Bicycle Kitchen in Los Angeles, and here are a few of the photos.

a little bit of Q&A...with Lanni
what was your first bike? My first bike was most likely around age 5, and it was pink and sparkly, and I cried when I was forced to take the training wheels off. Needless to say, I didn't learn to ride 2 wheeled bike until age 8.

favorite Bike memory?
Favorite bike memory was having to ride my cousin's old bike which had a broken seat. We basically wrapped ducttape around the frame and I just had to stand while we biked all around town. Very painful.

feelings about Bitchen @ the Bicycle Kitchen
The night you took our photos was my first time at Bicycle Kitchen and I really really enjoyed it! I loved the sense of community and I really learned alot, even in that short period of time. It was wonderful.
