Each year we have a featured style of bike or brand which appears on the show T-shirts, although the show is open to all bikes of all years. Just ride them in and have fun! This year we are featuring vintage steel frame road bikes. The show also attracts many used bicycle parts vendors. You may have a vintage bike project which is just missing that one hard to find part. This will be your opportunity to find that rare part and get your bike ready for the summer. We will also be raffling off a New Belgium Brewery bike. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit The Open Roads Bicycle Program. Don’t miss this awesome annual Kalamazoo Bike Week event.

Food Drive -- Ride a Bike to Your Post Office -- Help Stamp Out Hunger®!

Bicyclists are welcome to bring non-perishable food donations to local post offices. What a great way to experience how good you’ll feel riding your bike to run errands such as going to your post office while doing good for the community at the same time!

Times and locations vary.

Comments: Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect the goodness and compassion of their postal customers, who participate in the NALC Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive — the largest one-day food drive in the nation.

Led by letter carriers represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO), with help from rural letter carriers, other postal employees and other volunteers, the drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 25 years.

Carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters. Nearly 1,500 NALC branches in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands are involved.

The United States Postal Service, National Association of Letter Carriers, National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association, AFL-CIO, United Way, Valassis and Valpak Direct Marketing Systems are all supporting this year’s Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
