Can you believe it? The sun is due to shine bright just in time to kickoff the Big Sunday Parkways Season.

We hope you’re ready for the crazy summer riding season because it’s coming hot and fast. We’re just a few weeks out from the start of Pedalpalooza (which is the entire month of June this year). Speaking of which, one local bike fun organizer will be out of town in June so she decided to do her ride tonight! Don your onesie or best bodysuit and join in.

Without further delay, here’s our menu of rides and events sure to bring a smile on this sunny weekend…
