Biketoberfest is an annual fundraiser for the Bike Coalition and features beers, brats, bikes and bands.
The mission of the Bike Coalition is:
“Making bicycling better through advocacy and education by promoting biking as a healthy, low-cost, and environmentally-friendly form of transportation and recreation.”
Anyone who is interested in biking, carfree cities, and the environment should ride and ring their loud bike bells in support of this organization and this event. And bonus! Awesome beer brewed right on site and local indie bands. You can’t ask for much more than that.
We had a beautiful day for the event. (Although it was rescheduled from the previous weekend due to rain.) I did not, however, win the main raffle prize of a new bike, which I was certain I was going to win.
Here are three of the bands that played at Biketoberfest. I was really excited that someone posted a video from the actual event of the band that I liked the best. :-)
TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb
Do you like biking, beer, or live bands? ;-)
I would have taken my own videos or photos if I had bothered to put down my cup of beer long enough to do so.
