Capitol BikeFest

Today was Bike to Work Day in the Sacramento region. One of the big events for the day was the annual Capitol BikeFest that took place on the west steps of the Capitol.

The turnout was great with bicyclists riding in from all over the area (a number of riders came from as far as Folsom and beyond).

There were numerous local bike shops in attendance as well as representatives from a number of advocacy organizations, including SABA with their bike valet service.

The schwag was flowing freely, with the eco-totes from Whole Foods appearing to be particularly popular. One of the highlights of the event was the commuter bike raffle.

All in all it was a fun event and I’m looking forward to attending next year.
