Not just a parade, a Cuyuna Lakes cycling parade!

We here, at the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Festival, like the idea of a bike parade, however we felt the need to add a Cuyuna Lakes twist to it.

So we did, costumes. That’s right, brothers and sisters of the cycling fraternity, costumes. We also want all cycling enthusiasts of all practices to participate. Mountain bikes, fat bikes, road bikes, hybrid bikes, BMX bikes, tandem bikes, recumbent bikes, trikes, unicyles, and for sure, the pedal-free, stride bikes.

Rumor is, this is also a costume contest! We need you to compete!

Be a kid again, have fun, laugh, ride in costume and visually demonstrate our collective zest for life.

Parade staging begins at 9:30am on Saturday, June 9th at the Crosby Memorial Park. The official parade begins at 10:00am led out by the Man High Moonlander and the Cuyuna Lakes Merry Makers. Join the fun, revel in the moment, be a part of Cuyuna Lakes cycling history.

See you on the 9th of June, and by the way, register for the Kryptonite Hill Climb. Challenge yourself, you know you want to!
