Roller sprints between bands, BMX and fixed gear tricks and contests, a mechanics challenge and a variety of giveaways and activities. Basically, it is an all-day musical, bicycle fall fest to enjoy in celebration of our favorite cycling season and to benefit the fine people and good works of West Town Bikes.
