In August, thousands of Oaklanders flocked to the Jack London Square area to learn about about the cycling life at the annual PedalFest.
The celebration was open to everyone, from families with recreational riders to more seasoned cyclists, showcasing what makes cycling such a fun and amazing activity.
In collaboration with Bike East Bay and other sponsors, attendees enjoyed pedal-powered food, a pedal-powered sound stage featuring live music, a kid’s bike rodeo, safety training, and to see dare devil stunts by BMX Pros and professional stunt riders Zak Maeda and Casey Holm
There was also an amazing collection of bicycles from vintage designs and hand-built bikes to high-end custom rides and creative art bikes. There were also several unicycle riders, some involved in the unicycle basketball tournament.
