Pedalfest: fun, food, beer and bikes

penny-farthing at Pedalfest

Saturday was Pedalfest, a celebration of bikes, cycling, food, family and fun. There was perfect weather for the large crowd that turned out.

There were handmade bikes of all shapes and sizes, a vintage bike museum, a BMX riding demo, the Whiskey Drome, a kids' area and bike parade, food, live music, beer (thank you, New Belgium Brewing!), and of course valet bike parking.

I checked things out in the morning, then volunteered in the beer garden with other East Bay Bike Coalition and Walk Oakland Bike Oakland members. It looked like everyone was having a good time (and only a few having a little too good a time), from kids in the bike parade to people watching the crazy cyclists in the Whiskey Drome, to people just marveling at the beautiful and creative bikes like the giant double high wheel bike.

Lots more pictures:
