Pedal Power

The Thriller BMX bike show was a crowd favorite.
Urban cyclists now have their own Cleveland festival. The first NEOCycle, held Sept. 26-28 at Edgewater Park and University Circle, celebrated the region's two-wheeled movement with races, unique rides, BMX shows and food trucks. More serious cyclists competed in races at the Velodrome while those looking for fun donned glow sticks and costumes for the Night Ride. Live music from local heavyweights such as Jessica Lea Mayfield and the Cloud Nothings added another draw. The Hub, a festival village, offered pre-ride SpyngaFlow yoga sessions, bike polo, Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park build-out and pedal-themed vendors. If you didn’t have time to give this year’s fest a spin, NEOCycle returns for another installment next fall, hoping to carve out a niche as a premier Midwest urban cycling fest.

New Moon Rising keeps the feel upbeat on Sept. 28.

Young pedalers conquered the kids' obstacle course.
