Bike Events Are All Around

It’s the first official weekend of summer, and two events in the Southeast can help cyclists kick it off right.

First up, Nashville peeps can check out Russ & Laura (of the Path Less Pedaled) at the Nashville Bicycle Lounge at 5 pm on Saturday, June 26. I had the pleasure of meeting them yesterday, and you definitely want to hear about their trip across the country by bike.

My beautiful cousin Jodie is getting married this weekend in Birmingham, so I won’t be at the Bicycle Lounge–but if I have a second between rehearsals, showers and family time I will definitely be showing up at the Bici Coop Garden Party put together by our friends at Bike Skirt.

Are summer bike events popping up in your area?

    Hello to Russ and Laura! I’ve been following their cross-country travels… and hoping they pass through Chicago. ;-)

    Bike events abound in Portland any time of year, but especially right now (Pedalpalooza):

      I know! It was terrific. They are really getting around Nashville, and I’m glad they’ll be here a few more days.
