Weekend Review: LBC Bike Fest

Today I wanted to a weekend review of what I did more so than what I wore. Don't worry its still fashion related. This weekend there was a bike fest in Long Beach, CA.  Long Beach is a very bike friendly city. All over town you see people riding their bikes. Not sure if is because we are a beach city, or people just really like to ride bikes. This was the 1st annual bike fest and there were several events all weekend long. Sunday I attended a street fair on 4th street retro row. The retro row is a few blocks of thrift/vintage shops, coffee shops, restaurants, movie theater and bike shop.  It's a very cool little neighborhood with a great mix of people. The street fair was celebration of all things in motion and alternatives to driving your car. The street fair  included a bike-themed film festival at The Art, music, food & retail merchants, wine & beer gardens, safe cycling workshops, do-it-yourself bike repair, and more!  Their were people of all ages, sizes and styles. I saw many curvy gals with great style, and snapped some shots of them.  There were other people with interesting style that stood out and caught my eye. I took advantage of the event to break out my DSLR, which I haven't used in a while.  I don't claim to be a photographer but I do enjoy the art of photography so I put together a little slide show of some of my favorite pictures from the bike fest.

Enjoy!

As you can see in the photos people in Long Beach are very casual and relaxed, but still have a lot of character and style. My outfit was nothing special there for no full outfit shots, but I did get to wear my Asos Paris you & me tee. Also the girl in the picture with me is a friend of Jen Fashion Plus, who I have been tweeting with for a while now.  Small world how we all knew  each other in some way on the from the web.  Her name is Julie, she & her husband run the website 562citylife. Check them out on twitter and the website for all the info around the LBC.  Love meeting new people in my town, Julie, Jen & I plan to hang out and have a girls night. You know there will a post about that as well.
