Bikes ‘n’ BBQ Bash recap and photos
What a day!
The Bikes ‘n’ BBQ Bash on Saturday was full of smiling faces (smudged with a little barbecue sauce), expert volunteer wrenching, cameras snapping, and groovy live music.
The Russell St. BBQ raised $1,100 for the Community Cycling Center by serving more than 275 turkey, pork, and tofu sandwiches in three hours. At one electrifying point in the afternoon, our valet bike parking was at capacity! Our volunteer mechanics repaired more than 30 bikes and answered questions about bike maintenance and safety.
Foreign Orange and Julia Dawn and her band played on the stage set up in the middle of 17th Ave. A few attendees even brought bicycles to donate! It was an awesome afternoon; thanks to all who attended. We can’t wait to do it all again next summer.
