The Downtown Long Beach Associates present Bike Fest on May 3rd, 2014, celebrating bike-friendly Long Beach. This year features a fresh new spin on the event with a Criterium in partnership with Wolfpack Hustle, a hot new City Cross obstacle course, and Gold Sprint races from the stage (hosted by yours truly!).
Bike enthusiasts can enjoy the sport elements then kick-back in the Beachwood & Friends craft beer garden with thousands of fans enjoying live music, a vintage bike display, and special "Stylish by Bike" contests for both vintage and modern bikes/looks with great prizes! The event is free and will also include a Bike Valet, Children's Activities, Vendor Village and food specialties from Downtown's Restaurants.
Bike Fest of Long Beach will feature the Beachwood & Friends Craft Beer Garden in its line-up of activities on. Local award-winning Downtown Long Beach Brewery, Beachwood BBQ & Brewing, will be sponsoring the beer garden and has invited local craft breweries to join. Nearly a dozen craft breweries will bring different beer varieties with over 20 to choose from. Guests can purchase a 5oz. souvenir tasting glass and 10 tastings for $20.
Last but not least, Wolfpack Hustle will be hosting the Shortline Crit Race, which will include both track/brakeless and road divisions.
Plus, City Grounds will be out in full force by helping to host goldsprints and also setting up a vendor booth. Make sure to stop by and hang out with us, hope to see you all there!
