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.

Here’s one from a few years back…notice the sexy bike decorations

Awesome dorky sing-a-longs in Folsom stadium
