The 41st Street Parade!

  • This location is shown only to members

Decorate your bike and come out for Sacramento's oldest secret parade. For decades the 41st Street parade has spontaneously just "broken out" around 10:00 on the 4th of July. That's right! You're just standing around drinking Mimosas when all of a sudden a parade breaks out! There's live music, home-made ice cream, champagne (BYOB) and 500 bikes, trikes, wagons and unicycles. I'm posting this now, because a parade bike can take months to prepare. Personally I'm torn between a tandem, a unicycle or the swingbike (a wierd Stingray with rear wheel steering).

We will actually meet on the corner of 41st and M Streets. I'll be the one with the Mimosas...wait, everyone will have Mimosas. I'll have my Meetup pin on and be dressed in red white & blue.

A bicycle is not required to attend this event!

DON'T TELL ME YOU'RE WORKING. It's a holiday!

    41st & M Street. It's best to park your car by my place 36th and M and walk over. About 1 city block is all.

    Do people bring coolers and chairs to sit on the side lines? Or are people mostly walking/riding?
