A diverse crowd of people gathered in Old Sacramento to celebrate Earth Day and the Grand Opening of Practical Cycle. Riders of all ages and from all walks of life were drawn together to be a part of the first annual Ride for Earth.
With a diverse crowd of people came a diverse crowd of bikes! Many riders brought their own bikes, and Practical Cycle let out its entire rental fleet of Made in USA and Electric bicycles and tricycles for free. There was even a Velocab and a high-wheeler replica!
The ride followed the Sacramento River to its confluence with the American River in Discovery Park. Afterwards, fresh-squeezed organic lemonade that was delivered by an old Worksman tricycle was served at Practical Cycle, and the Rubber Band played some good old-fashioned rock-n-roll.
What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to spend some quality time with Mother Nature and good people on bikes!
