The Los Angeles Bicycle Culture Institute is seeking your help, through a Kickstarter campaign, to bring back the popular Los Angeles Bicycle Fest this Mother's Day, on Sunday, May 8. The campaign just crossed the $1,000 line, but needs another $2,500 to make its goal.

This year's festival is more of a bicycle theme park; the event organizers at the Bicycle Culture Institute refer to this year's Festival as a "Bicycle Disneyland." Different areas of Grand Park will have different bicycle themes so families can explore different kinds of bikes and different parts of the Los Angeles bicycle community.

It was important to the event organizers that the Festival appeal to both hard core bicyclists and people just out for a fun afternoon. For a more casual attendee, there will be food, music, and other attractions. For a more serious bicyclist, there will be plenty of vendors, resources, advocates, and ride groups to visit.

"Bike Festival is special, because you don't even need a bicycle to discover a theme park, a world of bicycles, with your whole family," says Bicycle Festival organizer Nona Vornado. "You'll enjoy music, and great food, and an awesome day in downtown. But in order to make that happen, we need your support."

To make a donation, purchase some schwag, or buy your ticket, visit the Bicycle Festival page at Kickstarter or the Bicycle Culture Institute Website.
