Saturday, August 18, the East Bay Bicycle Coalition is teaming up with Jack London Square and New Belgium Brewing Co. to bring you the 2nd Annual PedalFest. PedalFest will be the biggest celebration of the bicycle in regional history. Riders from all over the Bay will converge on Oakland’s waterfront for a terrific day of pedal-powered music, food, rides and more.
The first annual PedalFest was successful in every sense – over 18,000 people came out for the festival. The 13 entertainers on five stages were all huge hits, from the Rock the Bike soundstage to the daredevils on the Whiskeydrome and BMX stunt jumps. We expect our second PedalFest to be bigger and better in every way.
Enjoy a pedal-powered sound stage, folding bike races, bicycle trial demos, bike safety programs, bike pedal rides, bicycle rodeo, bike parade, food vendors, live music, and a New Belgium beer garden are just some of the events scheduled for the celebration!
We can’t wait to see you there! Come out and volunteer to help with our valet bike parking, outreach, pouring beer, and helping out with our activities, or just come enjoy the festival and raise a (beer) glass to a great event celebrating our rich and diverse bike culture here in the East Bay.
All proceeds from the New Belgium beer gardens go to benefit the bicycle advocacy work of the East Bay Bicycle Coalition.
