Hundreds and hundreds of bike riders gathered at Genoa Park on Friday to celebrate… bikes! Such a perfect evening. Wasn’t too hot. Bike riders of all ages, all sizes, and all colors came out to support Consider biking and how awesome bikes are. Talk about a vibrant and livable downtown on Friday. With Bike Fest, Food Cart Fest, and Firewater happening, thousands of folks peppered the downtown streets. Distances of 10-20 miles around all pockets of the city. There’s nothing like exploring your own city or exploring a new city, on a bike.
The ride ended back at Genoa Park where Waterfire took place which was really beautiful. I did not ride this year as I was happy to stay back and ‘hold down the fort.’ I ran into a few friends and had the most splendid, spntaneous evening. I mean, how can you beat: bikes, summer, friends, waterfire, sunset, and laughter. You can’t.
Enjoy the photos and keep riding.
Nothing helps like loads of volunteers to help keep an event running smoothly! Thank you, volunteers!
