Before posting the music that I love from this year, here is a gem from 2009 that I did not discover until summer of 2010. Love.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes - Up From Above
I’ve never participated in any of these things, but I’d really like to try out some of the group rides/events. Who wants to join me? Schedule is on the bike fest website.
Owners Bill and Michelle Larkin, who recently opened the Arsenal Cider House in Lawrenceville. They specialize in small batch, hand crafted hard apple cider, sparkling fruit wines and mead. They serve it in growler jugs in which you can return and have filled for a very reasonable price. Delicious and worth checking out!
