Leesburg Bikefest - First Day

Saturday, April 23, 2016

When we realized we would be staying in Florida until early June, we were happy for one main reason. Leesburg Bikefest! We attended in 2011 and really enjoyed it.

Our campground has seen several toy haulers come in for the weekend as well as several more hardy tent campers.

This year we knew we wouldn't attend more than one day and we opted for the first day when the crowds would be smaller. We were glad we did - the event has probably doubled in five years. Wonderful for the town!

We walked both sides of main street, stopped for lunch, enjoyed some of the custom bikes (especially two firefighter bikes from NJ in the TRIKES ONLY parking area that we didn't know about), as well as a few sweet cars.

The afternoon was capped off with a Blues Brothers performance.

We took the long, scenic way home, passing Gator Harley (can you say PACKED?) and ending with a movie. Life is good!

While we enjoyed ourselves, we realized something. Now that we aren't in buying mode, we spend a lot less time browsing the goods (and buying). In fact besides lunch and a bottle of water, the only thing we bought was a t-shirt for Stu (he says he's low on light-colored short-sleeve shirts). So while we enjoyed it, I'm not sure we would go again. And always, you can see our full album HERE. Oh, and this is the first time I've used my iPhone SE exclusively for photos - no camera!

Ciao for now!
