AUGUST 18, 2012 — OAKLAND, CA: Pedalfest offered a line-up of bike-related activities with no cover charge. Free ferries from San Francisco brought bike-toting passengers to the event at Jack London Square (Oakland’s hip/romantic waterfront area).
According to Pedalfest, all proceeds went to benefit the East Bay Bicycle Coalition, an organization that “works tirelessly for safe, convenient and enjoyable bicycling for all!”
One of many bicycle demonstrations included The Whiskey Drome, featuring ‘Oaklandesque-overall-trucker-hat-style, fun-loving men’ riding their bikes sideways in circles.
Other cool activities included:
- Bike stunts
- Live music and dancing
- Pedal-powered food vendors
- Local shop representatives, hand-made bicycles, and art
