Photos from the Bike Month Bash: Two Wheels and A Pool….Great Times At The First Annual Bike Month Bash

While riding your bicycle on El Cajon Boulevard is slowly inching its way to being glamorous, I wanted to personally thank everyone who came out to make the Bike Month Bash a success. We have a long way to go in making El Cajon Boulevard safe for bicycle riders and pedestrians but showcasing great bike friendly businesses like the Lafayette Hotel and Tiger! Tiger! is one of those routes to that end goal.

I hope everyone got to enjoy the pool and meet new people. I would also like to thank all our sponsors (The Lafayette Hotel, Sailor Jerry, Golper, Sullivan and Rivera, Hub and Spoke, Performance Bikes, UPS, Tiger! Tiger! Deco Bike Share) and our wonderful volunteers (Jeff, Vince, Aireanne, Brent, Sasha, and Andrew) and our very excellent board for their hard work in making the inaugural Bike Month Bash a huge success. I was so happy to see such a diverse group of bicycle riders, I felt that we had everyone there! A special thank you to the San Diego Police Department officers for escorting our riders and making the experience truly memorable. We had people who hadn’t ridden in over four decades experience the joys of riding a bicycle – that really made the day worth while for me.

Stay tuned for the next ride scheduled to happen on July 25th – so please save the date. While we are still finalizing the details, I want to pique your interest by stating that the ride is going to be near the beach!

Hope you enjoy the short video below (thanks Dennis Stein) and the pictures below from the day.
