Recycled bikes, art bikes, vintage bikes, scraper bikes, even trikes, all came out to Jack London Square this past Saturday, July 26, to celebrate all things bicycle.

Pedalfest, now in its fourth year, drew crowds of people to explore booths from local bike shops that displayed bicycle gear and gadgets, as well as activities for all ages. Rock the Bike sponsored a music stage where attendees pedaled to power the sound system. Stuntmen performed bicycle tricks for the crowds and many got the chance to try out bicycle race courses and bicycle-themed games.

Enjoy these photos from Saturday’s festivities of bikes tall and small and the people who ride them.
