Redmond resident Nicole Jackson said this is the fourth year she attended the event. She was ready to cycle through the trail with her 8-year-old daughter Clara and others.

The bash included bike skills clinics presented by local bike shops with topics including basic bike maintenance, e-bike basics, how to fix a flat tire and more. The Redmond Police Department had bike helmets for sale and children rode their bikes at the Kid’s Bike Rodeo and Kids to Parks Day, at Downtown Park.
