The VELOVE Winter Bicycle Festival is about to transform downtown Santa Rosa into a bicycle wonderland during Valentines Day weekend, February 14-15.

VELOVE is packed with events for everyone, including bike competitions, race viewing parties, non-profit fundraising events, a pro race team signing and plenty more.

It is a joint production between Bike Monkey, the City of Santa Rosa, Mainstreet and West Coast GoldSprints.

The festival is a culmination of a whole range of cycling events (view the schedule), from bike races on road tracks, mountain biking, cycle care classes, free bike repair kits, and all sorts of other goodies.

There is also a massive road bike sale, and a local trader will be bringing custom made bike kits. Don’t miss out – be there!
