Popular Annual Bicycle Festival and Brewfest Returns To Fairfax Saturday, October 13
Highlights Include a Bike Expo, Cargo Bike Jubilee, Brewfest and Family Parade
Fairfax, CA – A highly-anticipated annual festival, Biketoberfest Marin attracts cyclists and West Coast brewers alike in a combined bicycle expo and stellar brewfest. Held in Fairfax—the birthplace of mountain biking—Biketoberfest is not only Marin County’s premier bicycle event but is also a fundraiser for and presented by the Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC) and Access4Bikes (A4B). Last year the event drew over 5,000 beer and cycling enthusiasts from all over Northern California and raised $25,000 for MCBC and A4B, to continue improving on and off road bicycling conditions and access in Marin. Biketoberfest will be held at Fair-Anselm Plaza in downtown Fairfax, one of the most popular gathering places for both on and off-road cycling in Marin County and the home of MCBC and Iron Springs Pub and Brewery. The event takes place Saturday, October 13 from 11am to 6pm and will feature group road and mountain bike rides, live music, great food, family activities, a Cargo Bike Jubilee, dozens of bicycle, component, nutrition and athletic attire exhibitors, and 16 West Coast brewers serving over 30 beers. It’s a great way to have fun while helping a good cause.
