A perfect end to a perfect summer. We finally had the summer we have been waiting for the last few years. We had multiple days over 80 and even a couple in the 90s. We have had lots of bicycle fun from riding at Bicycle Sunday to celebrating the grand opening of the Wallingford Greenways to riding STP. Summer’s end is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate the end of summer with than to watch a bicycle movie in the park?
