The South Florida Bike Coalition has been spending lots of time with Jack the Bike Man and other Palm Beach advocates for better bicycling and the result is: the Return of CycleFest!
CycleFest first came to Palm Beach County a few years ago as a celebration of bicycling and bicycle culture. Despite great success, it took little more than one terrible hurricane season to bring an end to the party. The enthusiasm from people like you (who reads this blog anyway!?) never faded and so, with much ado, we announce CycleFest 2011!
CycleFest is a FREE, Family-Friendly 3-day international festival of all things bicycle. There will be something for everyone of all ages: music, pro and amateur races and criteriums, bike rodeos, design competitions, great food and, of course, beautiful bicycles. Currently, we plan to incorporate an open streets day, as well, in which we will temporarily turn Clematis Street into a world-class pedestrian boulevard.
We want your ideas, support and involvement – there is room for everyone who is willing and able to help make CycleFest an epic success. Come out and celebrate/brainstorm/party/imbibe with us on Friday, September 3rd at E.R. Bradley’s in Downtown West Palm Beach. Even the Happy Hour is FREE: Just showing up gets you in for the open buffet, free drinks served up by our own bicycle community ‘Celebrities‘ and the opportunity to meet people who love their community and bicycling as much as you do.
