Bike Columbus Festival

The Bike Columbus Festival was in full swing this past weekend.  Hot!  If you weren’t there you missed an awesome The Water Cycle Project booth, and men with mustaches on crazy bicycles.

Thanks to two of our volunteers, Adam and Melody, for manning our booth at the Kids In Motion portion of the festival over at COSI.  You guys did a fantastic job and the booth looks great!
