Pole Superstar Ride

Pole Superstar is putting on a pole dance competition in NYC October 1st at the Highline Ballroom to benefit SPIN Single Parents In Need. See their website for details and the promo video.
The client, Dianne Passage (center) showed up with an entire entourage including a stylist, assistant, photographer, bodyguard and two helpers to hand out rubber band bracelets with their logo. Yeah, she's a superstar.
This is just beautiful.
Construction workers on Hudson stopped working and watched the show while we paused at a red light.Not stopping for gas.
In front of Marquis.

The ambulance had its siren on and was on the way to an emergency but that didn't stop them from stopping to snap a few pictures.

I sense a kick heading in the direction of my head. This is becoming intuitive at this point but I did get clipped a couple of times.
She loved us!

Not Mr. Softee.

Armpit grip...Not easy.

Bike lane detour.
Julian from Revolution Rickshaws did a great job driving the photographer's pedicab and is available to follow PoleRiders as your personal pedal limo driver.

I'm laughing because the bikers behind us are popping wheelies and burning rubber. You can just make out Sean Robinson of Rickshaw USA on his bicycle behind the motorcycles. In October, Sean and Sean's dog Cooper will be embarking on a grand tour of the United States in an old school 3 speed rickshaw. Sean just showed up and was a huge help taking pictures, bringing water, managing the crowd, directing traffic and providing the Sham Wow for Marlo to towel off. (The Sham Wow has since mysteriously disappeared.)

Riding through the Meatpacking district. Cobblestones and Poleriding are not a good mix.
Peace, love and Poleriders
