Tom Parsons is the president of Cambria’s bike group, the Slabtown Rollers. This year, instead of a float for the Pinedorado Parade, the Rollers are putting together a plan that will hopefully bring upwards of 100 cyclists to the parade.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 2, on Main Street.
The Rollers would like to see a “wide diversity” of bikes, including unicyclists, riders on “tall bikes,” and young people on unique bikes. The only rule that will be imposed is that every rider must wear a helmet. Even if it takes up to five minutes or more for all the one hundred cyclists to pass by, the Rollers believe their entry will make a point about safe cycling.
“We want riders from 2 years old to 100 years old,” Parsons explained.
