    Beach Park Loop, Bakersfield, CA, United States

    Beach Park Loop, Bakersfield, CA, United States

    Date: Saturday, July 8th, 8:00 PM

    Location: Beach Park

    About: Join us for a family-friendly, all-ages cruise starting at Beach Park and following the bike path to the Marketplace. The ride is finished once the group reaches the Marketplace, so make sure you have a plan to get back to where you started! Some like to park at the Marketplace and ride to Beach Park prior to the start of the ride so they may enjoy the rest of the evening without having to ride back.

    FYI: California Vehicle Code requires bicyclists under age 18 to wear a helmet. The vehicle code also requires bicycles to have a front facing headlamp and at least a red rear facing reflector when being ridden at night. Its not only the law, but a great way to keep yourself safe!

    Joe Fike: Photographer/Artist/Cyclist On the Move

    Joe Fike is an artist who has combined his love of cycling with his passion for photography. Many of his photos are taken while riding his bike using a specialized selfie stick with a remote-control connection on his handle bars; his viewpoints and results are stunning! The physical aspects of taking these photos while negotiating the pavement on a moving bike is risky. Building his upper body strength has been part of the process to help him better control the handlebars with one arm, especially in precarious situations. After rides, his pictures are downloaded into his computer and a new form of artistry takes place, his manipulation of color. He uses color to set the mood and give life to his unique story; His viewers will be engaged and possibly mesmerized. Joe will give a short presentation, including a question and answer period. Art Sherwyn, long time artist and teacher will provide a short presentation on his insights on the “Art of Selection” factors which make for an artistic photo. The event is free and open to the public; we hope many of you take part in the experience.
