Rochester cyclists can celebrate the beautiful spring weather with Rochester Bike Week, Rochester's spin on National Bike Month, bike to work week, and bike to school week. The week is packed with community rides, bike-related film screenings, and clinics throughout the city. The official week is Sunday, May 10, through Monday, May 18, but bike related events continue throughout the month of May. Highlights include Radical Roots, a sociopolitical bike tour of local historic points (Sunday, May 10); a screening of "Breaking Away" at the Cinema Theatre as part of the Rochester Bicycle Film Festival (Tuesday, May 12); a screening of "The Triplets of Belleville" at The Little Theatre (Wednesday, May 13); and Bike To Work Day all across the city (Friday, May 15). The weekend will be especially busy, with a 100-mile Ride for Children fundraiser, a post-sunset night ride, a field repair clinic at Full Moon Vista, and the 5th Annual Seersucker Social Ride.
Rochester Bike Week begins on Sunday, May 10, and runs through Monday, May 18, at locations throughout the city. For event specifics and a comprehensive calendar, see rochesterbikeweek.blogspot.com.
