What's Going on in Joetown!

What's going on in Joetown? BikeFest is what's going on!!!!!! Yes, that's right, the St. Joseph Bike Festival planning is in full swing and picking up steam. A large group of area cyclist have been meeting for several months and we are beginning to see the fruits of our labors. Sponsors and Vendors are already being lined up and the festival has a verbal agreement with a local band to perform at the festival's closing.

I would guess that a lot of you haven't heard about or heard anything lately about the bike festival. So, on May 18th & 19th at Krug Park , St. Joseph will hold its first bike festival. The festival is going to be a huge undertaking and will require the help of many volunteers from the cycling community. If you want to volunteer, respond to this post with your contact information and our volunteer coordinator will contact you. We need as many volunteers as possible, but don't worry , we only want a couple hours of your time so you will be able to enjoy "Your Bike Festival".

In the past week the Bike Festival has received some good news. First off, we found out that the St. Joseph Parks and Recreation choose the Bike Festival as one of their four events to sponsor for 2012! That is great news, that is going to help us immensely. After that, the good news kept rolling in, the Mark Reynolds Fund also stepped up and sponsored us and took over some very important responsibilities . We also found out that the Bike Festival would be host to another wildly popular event, the first race of The KIDS TOUR of St. Joseph. All that is exciting news and just the beginning to what is surely to be a great event.

Are you excited yet? Come and be part of the excitement! Bike Fest planning committee meetings are every other monday with the next meeting being February 27th. Come out and be a part of what's going on in Joetown Cycling. Check back to this blog for new and exciting information about local cycling . Keep the rubber side down...
