Picture this… I’m casually hopping on my fabulously funky cruiser bike, the wind is blowing through my hair, amazing fall colored views are rushing by, I’m waving at friends on the sidewalk. I’m balancing one footed on the seat! Facing backwards! All while displaying my preferred hairstyle (a hot pink ‘fro!) I’m taking part in a “fairytale bike Parade” through downtown Steamboat, enjoying relaxed beer tastings and listening to free music – and of course winning the Best Cruiser Bike contest! All of my dreams have come true.

But seriously…OktoberWest this weekend! I’m really excited to let all of you know that my little daydream is becoming an ‘unexpected’ reality! If you’re a cruiser bike fan, which lets be honest who isn’t in this town? Come take part in the Pedaling Posse Parade on Friday evening starting at Howelsen Hill at 5pm and end it off with some relaxing beer tastings at a bunch of restaurants downtown. Saturday at Gondola Transit Center will feature a cruiser bike photo booth with posing opportunities which I hope will be ‘used and abused’ by all who are looking for some crazy, fun, free photos this weekend! And don’t forget to enter yourself and the kids into the cruiser bike contest on Saturday afternoon while enjoying the beautiful weather and free music!

Should be a fun OktoberWest weekend!
