Along with many booths and a huge crowd, there was a cyclocross race. I’d never seen one in person, so it was pretty exciting to watch.
There was also a bike powered smoothie station hosted by BikeDFW as well as representatives from Metroplex BMX, Pedal Power, Bicycles, Inc and ReGeared. Good Karma Kitchen was there with some tasty food and the youngsters in the crowd were entertained by a bounce house and fantastic face painting. If that wasn’t enough, there was a BMX Stunt show.

A small group of us took the DART Red Line train into Dallas, to take part in the 2011 Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, Richardson Bike Mart Cyclsomatic Bicycle Fair. This was the first of it’s kind for Bike Friendly Oak Cliff and for Dallas.
There was a great collection of exhibitors, including Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, Oak Cliff Bicycle Company, Southwest Frameworks, YBS Bikes, ReGeared, DORBA, bicidichi, BikeDFW, Bike Texas, Lone Star Cyclists, The City of Dallas, Hidden Clothing, Bike Friendly Richardson and title sponsor Richardson Bike Mart. There was also bike valet, provided by a great organization called Pedal Power – as well as an awesome BMX stunt show (also sponsored by Richardson Bike Mart).
Next door was the Go Oak Cliff Blues, Bandits and BBQ event which filled the air with incredible music and fantastic smells. The weather was perfect, the people were super friendly and the strong community vibe was shared by everyone. I hope to see this event, and others like it, continue on a regular basis.
