Agent Crush, Kiki spent more years popping and u-locking than just about any other bike dancer in the world. She joined the Sprockettes shortly after our founding in 2003 and continued performing with us until 2012. With glamorous red curls and a confident stance she was immediately recognizable at bike punk rallies, nonprofit fundraisers, community street fairs, Sprockettes girls' camps, and of course in the streets wherever she rode. bike blogger) Jonathan Maus captured her spirit in images. Nearly all the photos available here were taken by him. We are fortunate that someone with his skilled eye and trustworthy history has kept them available for us to appreciate. Kiki took care to present a very particular image and she did it extraordinarily well. Hollis, a bike-dance sister who suffered significant brain trauma in a nearly fatal collision while traveling in India. Four years of treatment later Hollis is still recovering. Kiki's trauma left no such possibility. After a few days of stress her family learned she had no brain activity and so she was taken off life support earlier this week. "She had a natural talent and joyous nature that shined through her performances" said Agent Trouble at a teary-eyed memorial in Oakland this week. "Fuck, I can't believe she is gone." contribute to her funeral please click here. We love you, Kiki. Thanks for all you contributed to bikedance, and to our lives. We'll miss you so, so much.
