Bike Rides at the Red Wing Roots Music Festival!

Harrisonburg’s favorite band The Steel Wheels is hosting the 2nd Red Wing Roots Music Festival on July 11, 12, and 13 at Natural Chimneys Park near Stokesville. The Steel Wheels love bicycles and have toured multiple times via bicycle pulling their instruments along for the ride. Tickets are available now, and selling quickly, so we suggest you go ahead and make a purchase to reserve your spot at what promises to become a classic Valley summer tradition.

In keeping with The Steel Wheels’ passion for bicycles, the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition will be organizing and leading group bicycle rides throughout the weekend.  If you’d like to volunteer to lead a ride, please contact Kyle at [email protected].
