Following recent renovations, including the demolition of a wall, Gallery One was opened up for bike storage. Hand-crafted modular aluminum structures, created and donated for the event by Oak City Cycling Project, functioned as temporary bike racks.

Resident artists Autumn Cobeland and Dianne Rodwell opened their studios up to the visitors and introduced them to their work.

Thanks to everyone that came out and made this cruiser ride excellent! Hopefully we’ll put another one together soon!
