The Artica festival site is close to the Mississippi but almost all of it is behind a flood wall. However, there is a long bike trail that runs along the river for a miles north of downtown. People ride on either side of the wall and it;s common for them to stop by the festival. Bike clothing has become elaborate and brightly colored.
Been a long time since I rode a bicycle, although I did it a lot when I was younger. The last time I tried my knee got so inflamed I needed a steroid shot. (Thanks to you, Steve, if you see this.) It's scared me off since.
