Cyclesomatic bicycle festival starts today

I’m wondering if the Lone Star Ride riders from the Dallas Voice team are up for a little more biking. Bike Friendly Oak Cliff is hosting, Cyclesomatic, a weeklong festival of bicycle fun today through Oct. 11. It’s pretty much an Oak Cliff thing with historic rides, competitions, a trek to City Hall (see Angela Hunt in biker shorts!), films, art, and such. That’s a whole lot of two-wheeling fun. Tonight they ride from the J.F.K. Memorial downtown to the Texas Theatre.

If I actually had a bike, I’d consider Sunday’s event which sounds like a blast. hosts the Bicycle Scavenger Hunt at noon on Sunday [UPDATE: This event has been rescheduled for Oct. 25 due to the darn dreary rain.]. Check out the rules after the jump because they are pretty serious. The hunt starts and ends in the Bishop Arts District and when the teams start rolling in, Oktoberfest and the awards ceremony gets underway. Sounds like a whole lot of fun, some good cardio and then some quality carbs thanks to Eno’s Pizza. Who can beat that?
