Not an empty signpost in sight at the Joyride Art Show opening last night at Spencer Brownstone Gallery in Soho, part of the tenth annual Bicycle Film Festival. Packed with messenger bags and (supposedly) as-good-in-a-can Sixpoint, the gallery showcased work by over 50 pedal-pushing artists including Dan Murphy, Phil Legit and Ryan Humphrey.

The festival continues through Sunday with a stream of one- to ten-minute shorts at Anthology Film Archives. Tonight they're screening the well-received Richard Press documentary on the octogenarian Times fashion photographer, Bill Cunningham. Word is, he was always a Schwinn man himself.
