Rock & Roll to Roots 2013 Final Info


Saturday is shaping up to be a great ride. Before we get into the details, please remember THIS IS NOT A RACE. Pace yourself, be safe, and have fun. Helmets are required for all MiCo Velo rides, if you don’t have it you don’t ride, no exceptions. If you are riding with children, take a minute and make sure they know the rules and are safe and enjoy themselves as well.


We really think our Roots Festival is worth an entire day. Bands usually get better as the day goes, but there is great music and a relaxing and fun atmosphere all day. There is also a full day of music Friday as well. Please stick around, wear your shirt, use your cup and enjoy the day…We Do!

Now for the updates, it’s a lot so hopefully we answered all your questions…
