Audiograph's Sound of the Week: East Bay Bike Party

Eli Wirtschafter
Costumed characters gather in Oakland's Frank H. Ogawa Plaza for East Bay Bike Party

All week long, we've been playing this sound, and asking you to guess what exactly it is and where exactly in the Bay Area we recorded it.

This auditory guessing game is part of Audiograph, a crowd-sourced collaborative radio project mapping the Bay Area’s sonic signature. Audiograph tells the story of where you live, and the people who live there with you. Every Thursday, we tell you the story behind our weekly mystery sound on Crosscurrents, and here in weekly blog posts.

ELIZABETH RHOEM: Just at that last turn I was like, 'why are there so many bicycles?' And then I realized... I'm a lucky lady!

East Bay Bike Party tries not to leave a mess. Volunteers ride along with custom "recycle bike" trailers.

Our winner this week was Dan Roisman.
