EVENTS: Dyke March organizers bring pedal power to World Pride

But in 2013, bicycles took on a greater role than ever, thanks to a contingent formed by the queer-friendly Bike Pirates DIY shop and Dyke March organizers. The bicycles, almost 75 in total, formed a chorus of ringing bells between the roaring motorcycles that have led the event since it started, and the chanting marchers behind.
