In addition to Shriners in midget cars and on fez-wearing mules, the FIBArk Parade had plenty of bikes of various types, including this foil festooned wheelie-popping cargo bike guy. I dig the sports coat.
Pony up, there, pardner, and sing me a lively one.
This cowboy has got on his go-to-town duds. "Hello, ladies..."
"Yeah, it looks like I'm going to need to trade the sidecar for that 2-seat trailer...."

The vast majority of Salida bikes are simple cruisers and a busy night will see downtown bike racks full and bikes piled against any available wall and sign post.
