Fests, parades, harvests and bikes too

The award for most distracting, crazy day goes without a doubt to last week’s North End’s Columbus Day Parade. High school marching bands, colonial reenacters, old 1950s cars, North End societies and tween pop bands all passed right by on Atlantic, providing a little more than the usual entertainment as the afternoon tour got ready to leave.

It’s an awesomely busy time with the weather perfect for riding, and visitors excited to get out and explore Boston at it’s best. We ran into a half marathon, Honk! festival, Oktoberfest and a road race last weekend.

We had an epic Paul Revere Ride to Freedom and dealer tours with Bicycle Retailer and Industry News this week after the Outdoor Demo in Providence. We lead rides to several of Boston and Cambridge’s retailers, talking shop on the latest in the land of bikes. Saw a lot of great shops, rode some cool new bikes and learned to good deal too, even in some soggy weather.
