Derby Days

Another Redmond classic.  Each year, about a week after Fourth of July, the city of Redmond holds a festival featuring a parade, local businesses, live music, kids’ activities, fireworks, and the Derby Days Criterium, one of the longest-running bicycle races in the nation.

Kids' activities

As with the Saturday Market, (in my opinion) it is much easier to reach the festivities via bicycle.  Bike racks are plentiful in Redmond…parking is not, especially during Derby Days when a number of streets and parking lots are blocked off for the Criterium and for vendor booths.

And one last thing, albeit of lesser relevance to the topic–some quasi-scenic images from an offshoot of trail on which I bike.

An offshoot of the trail.  It's a lot more scenic in real life, I promise.

Some grass, I thought it was rather pretty.

Postscript: I’m still trying to work out the picture upload process–hence this post.
