DO YOU LIKE TO BIKE?

Felt gloomy about going to Santa Fe's biggest one-day event, because you can't bring your bicycle with you into Fort Marcy Park to watch Zozobra burn?

This year, you CAN ride your bike to Zozobra with no worries!

Thanks to a partnership with the two-wheel wizards at Bike Santa Fe, the Santa Fe Kiwanis will have a Bike Valet onsite so that dedicated riders can pedal down and then walk in to watch Old Man Gloom go down in flames, knowing that trusty two-wheeler is in the care of the bicycle pros!

The Bike Valet will be located on the west side of the Masonic Lodge parking lot, located just to the west of the Scottish Rite Center on Paseo de Peralta at Bishop's Lodge Road. There is no charge for this service, and Bike Santa Fe personnel will be there to accept your bike, store it safely, and help retrieve it once Old Man Gloom is a pile of ashes.

So go ahead, come to Zozobra, watch that old villain disappear, and then zip on home knowing that you helped Mother Earth by using your own two legs to power you into the heart of Santa Fe for the 96th Burning of Zozobra on Friday, September 4, 2020.
