Earth Week “Green Machine” Bicycle Fair

We’ll be sharing a booth with Gold Country Cyclery at Folsom Lake College’s “Green Machine” Bicycle Fair on Wednesday, April 22 from 11am—2pm. The fair is part of FLC’s Earth Week Festival that runs April 20—24. We’ll have a few commuter bikes on hand including a Civia Hyland and my personal Surly LHT, as well as a variety of bike commuting accessories. If you’re in the area, stop by and say “hi”; we’d love to meet you!

From FLC:

Please join us for our 3rd Annual Earth Week Festival and specifically, the first ever “Green Machine” Bicycle Fair on Wednesday the 22nd from 11am-2pm. The Green Machine Bicycle Fair will feature a number of bicycle related events including Speakers, Workshops, Vendors, Community Agencies, Food, Music, Demonstrations, and Prizes from local bike shops to be raffled off. At 4:30pm we will have our “Bike with Bill” evening social ride from campus to Old Folsom for food and beverages. The Green Machine Bicycle Fair is our homage to the Ultimate Sustainable “Green Machine”: your two wheeled, pedal-powered, ever-ready to roll bicycle.

Peddling it off the festivities begin on Sunday the 19th with a supported bike ride from Lake Tahoe to Folsom. All events during the Earth week Festival are completely free (except the ride on Sunday which has a nominal registration fee).

    Hey Alan,

    An aside: your bike is equipped with a stainless water bottle in a bottle cage. Where did you find a bottle that fits a water bottle cage? Or where did you find a cage that fits a stainless steel water bottle?

    All the cages I have are too small/tight and all the stainless bottles are too big. I could do some bending, I suppose but would like to find ready made solution, if possible.

    THANKS!

    Hey Edde,

    Here’s the bottle and cage I’m using:

    Nitto Hourglass Cage

    Klean Kanteen SS Water Bottle – 27 oz.

    This combination didn’t require any modifications. The large bottle is a semi-tight fit so it doesn’t rattle. I also have the smaller 18 oz. bottles but they tend to rattle around more, so I mostly just use the larger bottle now, even if I don’t fill it all the way. I use the SS bottle for drinking at work all day anyway, so the larger capacity is useful for me.

    I hope that helps…

    Sounds like a great reason to take a day off and ride over to Folsom. I’d love to check out the Civia. Thanks for the heads up.
