Biketoberfest in Farifax October 13th was Successful Funfest!

Posted: 2012-10-19

5,000 people, $50,000 raised!

It was an incredible warm October day in Fairfax last Saturday, as thousands of people celebrated the bicycle at Biketoberfest. There were kids on push bikes, families on cargo bikes, hipsters on classic hybrids, and some beautiful handmade bikes built from steel, carbon, and wood.

Over 60 exhibitors - including WalkBikeMarin - a cargo bike relay race, bicycle rides with some of the best frame builders, and great food  filled out the activities. The music line-up received lots of compliments – blues, rock, oompah and soul. Biketoberfest had it all!

5,000 people attended the day-long event and the Marin County Bicycle Coalition raised $50,000 thanks to the winning combination of sponsors, exhibitors, brewers, food vendors, silent auction, music and group rides.

For a family perspective of Biketoberfest, check out MCBC Planning Director Alisha Oloughlin’s short report, and see event photos on our Facebook Page.

See you next year, when Biketoberfest returns on Saturday, October 12, 2013!
