Both events are happening on Sunday, August 29th. More information at

The event will bring all sorts of people together for a fun afternoon, and we'll have a little bit of something for everyone. There will be music and entertainment interspersed with cycling demos and exhibits, and we will also have some fun bicycle contests and rodeo games.

There will also be live music and free food! Sounds pretty fun, eh?
