What's pink and black, has two wheels and usually a few scabs? A Sprockette, that's what.
The Sprockettes, based in Portland, Ore., are a synchronized dance troupe with a do-it-yourself work ethic. But instead of traditional dance moves, their choreography features pink and black BMX bicycles in a performance that's part dance and part stunt biking.
Phyllis Fletcher of member station KUOW in Seattle caught their act, and has this profile.
