...A note about bikes - you can't drive regular cars in the “city” as it is too dangerous — you either walk, ride your bike (which is advisable as the city is big) or modify funky cars/bikes etc. A typical sight at Burningman is to see a sofa on wheels rolling past you, or an entire bar with barstools and patrons cruising by. You are also encouraged to decorate your bike to avoid misplacing it or having someone else “misplace” it for you (bikes are not officially lost or stolen until a week after the event). Bicycle decorations ranged from plastic flowers to neon lights to dolls heads...
