Biking in New York City conjures some very mixed opinions from people. Some people can't imagine living in this city without biking, and others would like to see a whole lot less of it.

Well, hate to break it to you bike-bashers, but two-wheel transportation is here to stay.

Mayor de Blasio is planning on adding 15 miles of protected bike lanes this year. Citi Bike is planning on expanding as well ― to the demise of a very upset Brooklynite β€•  but don't worry Brooklyn you'll still have your crazy bike block parties to look forward to.

The 12th Annual Bicycle Fetish Day took place this weekend at The City Reliquary in Williamsburg, and the block was hot with all sorts of crazy bikes that ranged from vintage, to one with a swing set.

Now, riding a bike in NYC might be a struggle, but these people simply don't care. They rolled in deep and brought some very eye-catching bikes. The real showstopper was Black Label Bike Club's double-decker swing set bike that we wish was being sold everywhere.

Check out some of the absurd awesomeness below, and remember that there ain't nothin' like a hipster block party.
