The first Western New York Bike Festival, a two-day event, will feature rides and events in one cumulative set of festivities for off-road, road, recumbent, trike, tri, adaptive, experienced cyclists and new-to-biking riders. Clinics, demonstrations, and guided rides will also be featured at the event, which has been organized by local biking groups. The festival will also provide an opportunity to donate to R Community Bikes, an organization which repairs donated and discarded bicycles, and then dispenses them to children and adults at no charges. Ten bike shops will have representatives present at the festival, six manufacturers will be offering demo rigs, and 16 additional booths for several different related organizations will also be in attendance. Of course, the celebration will have food and drink, outdoor grilling, an appearance by the Cheesed and Confused food truck, and a variety of snacks sold by the Victor PTSA.
The Western New York Bike Festival will take place at Dryer Road Park in Victor (7405 Dryer Road) on Saturday, June 4, and Sunday, June 5, beginning at 9 a.m. Tickets are $5 per individual, and $10 for families in advance; $8 and $14 at the gate beginning June 1.
