Wurmy Wormfield’s Bicycle Day celebrates the bicycle, pure and simple.
Bicycle Day is an homage to bicycling and to children all over the world who love riding their bikes. The track is a love-song to the legendary bike rides of Albert Hoffman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Albert Einstein, Susan B Anthony and many many more...
In Bicycle Day, the bicycle is uplifted as a material symbol and literal manifestation of human liberation, laughter and freedom.
Wurmy’s life long dedication to the bicycle is real. He biked throughout his childhood, and early adulthood; migrating to Los Angeles on a bike, co-creating the Los Angeles Critical Mass in the late 1990’s and a few years later was part of the team that inspired the Los Angeles Bicycle Coalition. Currently Wurmy bikes regularly to school with his own children.
Wurmy Wormfield (the artist formerly known as Charles Herman-Wurmfeld) co-created the school and community garden at Micheltorena Elementary School (across the street from his home in Los Angeles); literally overturning the parking lot at the corner that was once home to 19 automobile parking spaces. The community garden now houses countless fruit trees, multiple community garden beds, community chickens, community bunnies, a community oven and — of course — a bike rack.
Where would we be without roads? On the community garden planet, of course!
