Bike Rides at the Red Wing Roots Music Festival!
Harrisonburg’s favorite band The Steel Wheels is hosting is first-ever music festival on July 12, 13, and 14 at Natural Chimneys park near Stokesville. The Steel Wheels love bicycles and have toured multiple times via bicycle pulling their instruments along for the ride. Tickets are available now, and selling out fast!, so we suggest you go ahead and make a purchase to reserve your spot at the first year of what promises to be a classic Valley summer tradition.
In keeping with The Steel Wheels’ passion for bicycles, the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition will be organizing and leading group bicycle rides throughout the weekend. If you’d like to volunteer to lead a ride, please contact Kyle at Lawrence.email@example.com.
