The fourth annual Davis Bike Loopalooza on May 5 was again a resounding success thanks to the many volunteers, participants and supporters of this community event sponsored by Davis Bicycles! Kids and adults alike spent hours exploring the Davis Bike Loop, and finding their way around town in this eco-friendly manner. In fact, we topped 200 kids this year, with 125 finishers (kids who completed the entire 12-mile ride). A huge congratulations to these budding cyclists — may the wind be always at your backs!
The Bike Loopalooza is entirely supported by volunteers and our community supporters. This year’s Bike Loopalooza crew included our longtime supporters from Ken’s Bike-Ski-Board at the mechanic station. Rocknasium also made an encore appearance at Holmes Junior High School and was a smashing success, of course!
We had volunteers from many of the Davis elementary schools’ PTAs and PTOs and from Holmes and Emerson/Da Vinci Junior High School student groups. A new addition to our lineup this year was Alpha Phi Omega fraternity, Iota Phi — we couldn’t have done it without your generous and reliable volunteers!
Davis Bicycles! would like to send our sincerest thanks to all of these local businesses and organizations for their support. We also have to thank Clif Bar & Co. for donating hundreds of Z-bars for our participants, the Yolo County Visitors Bureau and Davis Downtown for helping us promote the Bike Loopalooza, and, of course, The Davis Enterprise for its generous coverage of the event.
