Berkshire Bike N Fly, by the Great Barrington Rotary Club
The unique 4th annual Southern Berkshire Bike N Fly event is really growing in popularity.
This year 115 cyclists participated in the 20 mile fun children’s ride, the 35, and 50 mile and through the very scenic route on back roads of the Berkshires hills starting and finishing at the Great Barrington Airport.
The bike fly event featured live bands, remote control and private airplanes that put on shows. There were helicopter rides, hang gliders and hay rides, car show along with some awesome local craft vendor’s sharing their wares.
With the right saddle, lots of bumps or long days in the saddle can lead to perineum compression. So, finding the most comfortable bike seat for the event may require you to adjust your riding style.
The best part of the whole event is The Great Barrington Rotary Club uses all the proceeds to support local high school students fund their higher education. Great Barrington Rotary has awarded over 700 thousand dollars in scholarships in the past 30 years. You also have the option to pay your fees in Berkshares. Probably the best electric bike for touring is the 806 folding ebike by Wisper
This event is one to mark your calendar for a year in advance for sure. Abbott’ limo is proud to be a sponsor of this great event! See you there next year.
