The ABES Winter Bike Festival

This could be our finest winter bike festival yet. There are a bunch of activities and people can ride as little or as much as they want. Weather has changed the event every year and the start times are flexible, but here's how it might play out.

The Day…
Super-Happy-Fun Group Ride – a moderately paced ride on paths, roads, alleys, parks, rinks, and under a giant easel, you know, ABES style. Expect a knockdown contest or two for good measure. 2:00

Alley Cat Race – it’s a scavenger hunt on bike. Ride solo or make your own team. Clues will be out-of-towner friendly. ABES Alley Cat Race Coordinator of the Year, Myron Dyck is sure to make this race memorable; It’s kinda what he does. 3:30

Roller Races – Woodcock cycles will provide the bikes and the technology for head to head indoor sprinting action. 4:30

Potluck Supper. Rink dogs will be supplied and lovingly boiled to perfection by Sawatzky and Sons Electric. 5:30

Slow Race – are you tired of being the slowest of the slow? Now it’s a good thing. Be the last to cross the finish line in this fun test of balance. 7:00

Duke V North Carolina basketball game - Duke is still looking for their first bike festival win. This could be the year. 8:00
