Mountain Equipment Co-op will be holding its annual Bikefest on June 26, 2011, from 9:00 am to 2 pm. This year it will be taking place at the Brittania Park (Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre) .
Mountain Equipment Co-op describes the event as a daylong community celebration of all things bicycle related. It states that the goal of Bikefest is to bring together Ottawa’s bicycle community and those new to bikes, to celebrate the wonders of cycling.
Bikefest is free and is supposed to have something for everyone. It will feature lots of clinics and seminars, the opportunity to learn how to repair your bike, free bike tune-ups, free safety and helmet safety checks, a kid’s corner (crafts, cycling safety, etc), groups rides, and live entertainment. There will also be a bike swap where people will be able to buy or seel used equipment. In addition there will be food vendors onsite as well as businesses selling bicycle related merchandise.
