Red White & Bicycle!

Via on Jul 3, 2010


When I think of the 4th, I think of eating excessive amounts of watermelon, fireworks bought on the edge of town, goofy sing-a-longs in Folsom stadium (Deep and Wide, Old Mr. Ford) and of course…bike parades!


Dressing up a bike with red white and blue streamers and cruising around town is as American as apple pie.  It just so happens that we here in Boulder have a whole lot of cruisers and a whole lot of Spirit.

Ever seen five hundred people take to the streets chanting USA USA USA? It’s fun, catchy, and you can’t forget the words to this one.
