Biding your time between CicLAvia events? Head over to the Hammer, which will be hosting a "Bike Night" next month.

Bikers get free admission to a bike-centric night at the museum on Thursday June 7 at 7:30 pm. The Hammer's first biennial exhibition Made in L.A. will be on display. You can pose with your beautiful bike and mussed-up hair on a bike runway and later in a free portrait (here are last year's). You can make reflectors for your bike or race other bikers. There will be a screening of the bike messenger thriller "Quicksilver" starring Kevin Bacon, who called the film "the absolute lowest point of my career." And yes, this is definitely an event for adults—there will be a cash bar for beer and wine.

Artist Lisa Anne Auerbach, who came up with the idea of mixing bikes with curation is the guest host. She told LAist previously, "I like to bike in Los Angeles, and I often find myself the lone bike at museums or galleries."

The Hammer Museum is located at 10899 Wilshire Blvd, and you can enter the museum via Lindbrook Drive.
