We were out at Berkeley Spark this weekend to enjoy the festivities and to help promote Bike Seats on the Playa. With so many cool DIY bike seats, bike trailers, and art bicycles, I had to write a blog post to share some of the pictures. Berkeley Spark is a sort of Burning Man pre-party or send-off party held annually at Civic Center Park in Downtown Berkeley. It was a beautiful Bay Area summer afternoon, full of arts and crafts, dancing, food and grog, and most importantly ... lots of bicycles.
Bicycles at Berkeley Spark 2014
There were all sorts of custom rigs at the park, from functional to artistic and everything in between. I included some photos here of the best ones from the afternoon.

I love your bike seat, and am looking forward to getting to use one sometime soon. Just a quick note about the green bike pictured in you Bicycles of Berkeley post. The bike is not a DIY. It is a Boda Boda, manufactured by Yuba. It is a "mid tail" bike, shorter than a longbike but longer than a regular bike, and designed to take 1-3 passengers on the elongated back rack, as well as whatever "stuff" you have to carry. In the photo, you can see the seat post was taken out and locked to the rack...the nose of the seat is just poking up by the front of the rear wheel.
