Open Streets and lots of bikes


Fort Worth’s new bike-share bikes got a lot of use on Sunday at the Open Streets event on Fort Worth’s near south side.

Hundreds of people turned out to stroll along Magnolia Avenue, closed to traffic from Eighth Avenue on the west and Hemphill Street on the east.
Sponsored by Fort Worth South Inc., the event featured street musicians, glass-blowing demonstrations, roller derby skaters, skateboarders, food trucks, vintage clothing vendors, yoga classes, face-painting and, of course, lots of bicycles.
I took a couple of cameras but shot only a few photos, including some snapshots of three of the “elders” in Fort Worth’s emerging bicycle scene — Larry Kemp, Dave Hickey and Jon Devine — and a shot of a friend’s Surly bike at Zio Carlo’s brew pub.
