Velo Fest: Movement of the People is the kick off the second year for Velo Fest Community Initiative.
The festival which is April 13 and 14, 2012 will showcase a community of bikes parade at 5:30pm starting at the parking garage, riding through the historic district in St Augustine FL, ending at Flagler College with a free educational event. Saturday morning at 7am spectators can watch professional cyclists race through the old streets in the Old City Criterium commentated by international triathlete and resident, Dirk Bockel. Finally, Wrigley Ride, a memorial ride for Bryan Wrigley, will begin and end at the St Augustine Amphitheatre at 2pm while taking riders past his memorial ghost bike. Bryan’s mother Mandy will be on the route to hand out flowers for riders to drop at the site of his death on CR- 214. Everyone is then invited to music, food and fun until 8pm at the St Augustine Amphitheatre. SweetWater Brewery is on tap with the sounds of The Red River Band, Son of a Bad Man, and Flagship Romance. We encourage everyone to watch, ride, or race to any of the events to show their support. More information on where to register and schedule can be found at www.velofest.org.
