Folding Bike Race
Join in the fun at Pedalfest at the folding bike race. Race against the clock, your friends, or Clay, owner of Bay Area Bikes. The course will start with gong of the bike bell—contestants will race to their bike, unfold it, ride a lap around the short course toward a City Car Share car, fold their bike and pop it in the trunk. The fastest time of the day wins a great prize, with prizes for runners-up as well. Bring your own bike (folders only), or use one of Bay Area Bikes’ demos.
