Hundreds of cycling enthusiasts will gather to enjoy a free, flying pancake breakfast, coffee, live music, cycling-related exhibitors, a photobooth and more during this celebration of human-powered transportation.

“Biking is a really great alternative to driving, both for your own health and the health of the environment,” said MetroParks sustainability manager Tim Pritchard. “Each time you opt to walk or bike to work, run an errand or meet friends, you are lessening your carbon footprint.”
