For those with competitive spirit go head-to-head with other attendees in the bike sprints, tiny bike time trial and the slow/messenger races.

The event will also feature food from Love's Ice Cream, Pizza Parliament and Mosbyspopcorn.

Music will float through the area beginning at 5 p.m. with the sounds of Hannah Laine, Jesse Ray and the Carolina Catfish, The Hoplites, Bike Tuff, Les Creatif, Lady Ace Boogie and Cabildo.

Those 21 and up can also enjoy brews from Brewery Vivant, Crewston Brewery and Vander Mill throughout the day.
