Arts Market Opening Pictures

Despite the temperatures continuing to be well below average for us here in North Florida. People bundled up and flocked to the opening of the second season of the Riverside Arts Market.

While we at the bike valet didn't take the beating the we took during last year's opening day. We were very happy with the steady flow of people that kept the bikes racks close to full through out the day.

The first bike showed up an hour before the opening of the market. Roxanne (pictured above) and is proudly displaying the first valet ticket of the season. You can read more about Roxanne and her car-free life in her commuter profile she did for Bike Jax a while back.

This mother and daughter traveled from their home 3 miles away. 3 miles is a very short distance on a bicycle and easily ridable for a child as long as you remember that they are a child and let them ride at their pace and not yours.

Our new sponsor Regions Bank was well represented with our new banners. We even had a couple members of the bank ride over on Regions Cruisers. You will have an opportunity to win one of these bikes soon. I'll give you more details on how that will happen shortly.

Speaking of bikes, If you didn't make it out to the market on opening day. Make sure when you do, drop in to check out these beautiful European bikes from Nest Living. They will be on display and available for purchase all season right next to the bike valet.

Bike Jax is very happy and excited to be able to provide the Free Bike Valet for a second season. We are looking forward to keeping your bike safe and secure while you enjoy everything that the Riverside Arts Market has to offer.
