Oakland’s Pedalfest: Celebrating All Things Bicycle
On Saturday, Bike East Bay’s annual Pedalfest at Jack London Square in Oakland brought out bicyclists of all shapes, sizes, ages, and colors to celebrate what makes bikes wonderful. Below are some the day’s highlights. All photos by Melanie Curry.
One of the day’s thrills was the amphibious bike race, which required participants to ride into the estuary, make their way out around a buoy and back, and then ride onto land again. The short videos below show how a few hardy souls rose to the challenge.
Here the winner emerges from the water and rides away while his competition is still adapting their bike for land.
