CycleMAYnia has made it cool for people of all ages to get on their bikes and ride!
Here are my photos!
The kickoff event came at First Thursday, starting with a Bike Fashion Show, taking over the entire main plaza of Paseo Nuevo. Bike fashions included both clothing and bikes and hundreds packed in to see it all for about an hour.
As the Bike Fashion Show wrapped up, the festivities moved over to De La Guerra Plaza as hundreds of cyclists gathered for Bike Moves. Bike Moves happens each month near the end of First Thursday. Cyclists wear wild clothes and many have unconventional bikes. But the highlights are the crazy lighting effects on people and on bikes.
This month's event coincided with May Day and there was a convergence with a May Day march as well! That march highlighted issues of climate change, economic justice and police/community matters including the Gang Injunction.
The Bike Moves ride lasted for over an hour, wandering the State Street corridor, on down to Stearn's Wharf for some daredevil bike moves.
From there, the celebrations continued until late at night back at Bici Centro, sponsor of the events along with the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition.
