If you’ve got a penchant for pedals, head to Williamsburg this Sunday—the event was originally scheduled for Saturday—for the City Reliquary Museum’s 9th Annual Bicycle Fetish Day. It's the perfect time to celebrate your unique set of wheels, or—since the festival comes just in advance of the launch of Citi Bike on Memorial Day—get in the mood to take out one of the sharing program’s royal-blue steeds.
Bikers can roll out their shiny new toys and clunkers alike at this street fair that will host bicycle art, advocacy groups, a BMX performance courtesy of Post Bike Shop and more. Eager cyclists can line their wheels up to be judged in categories such as Best Mutant Bike, Best Commuter and Best Ugly Bike. Perhaps a vintage fixie will be awarded Best in Show—this is Billyburg, after all. Prizes come courtesy of local shops, including Outlier Tailored Performance, Velo Brooklyn Bushwick Bike Shop and Affinity Cycles. Havemeyer St between Grand and Hope Sts, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-782-4842, cityreliquary.org). May 26 at noon; free.
