Bike Porn Industries solemnly mourns the passing of our of its greatest supporters and instigators.
Kelsey Rolf died in her sleep this past Sunday. 10/10/10
She was 23.
She may in fact be the first bike porn star to die. We have not been keeping perfect records, alas. The genre of "bike porn" has come to fruition via countless inspired fucking bike perverts. We can not imagine a single person who has embodied our principles more.
From the 1st moment she was seen riding the saddle of a fixed gear bike while in front of her a teen aged boy was cranking the pedals as she relentlessly flogged him, we knew she would be a force to be reckoned with. Since that moment she was able to push other's limits and challenge our brains and bodies, our wry and wit, not to mention our stamina and patience.
Besides being a hot, badass biker, she was also active protecting those without a voice. She loved animals; when in Portland she worked at doggy daycare, and just before her death was highly prized at Seattle's Exotic Veterinary. She was vegetarian or vegan most of her life but while she was proud of her choices she affirmed other's rights to make their own choices. We are reminded of Mother Mary Jones "afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted."
So much more than a sexual object... she subjugated sex!
We will miss the humor, the glamor, the style, and the snark.
Services will be held this Sunday, October 17th at The Woods in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland, Oregon.
We expect tears and cake.
Our condolences go out to her husband, Tom, of dirty surfing fame.
Donations in her name can be made to the Oregon Humane Society, or alternatively go to a place where you can buy cheap, used clothing, get something bizarre, trashy or otherwise out of context for your surroundings and send in a picture of your enjoyment for life.
She will be missed.
