Owosso Bike Fest 2019

For fans of "non-usual bicycles," there were two events in Michigan on the weekend of Aug. 10-11, forcing them to choose attending one or the other.
There was the 35th annual Michigan Human Powered Vehicle Rally, of course, but also the 15th annual Owosso Bike Fest, for those interested in cruisers, stretch cruisers, vintage bikes and that sort of thing.
Michigan HPV Rally co-founder Terry Gerweck chose Owosso. 
The official Bike Fest was on Sunday and included showing and selling bikes.
Prior to that, Terry reports, on Friday evening was a peddlers pub crawl, then on Saturday afternoon, a 22+ mile ride from Owosso to Ovid and back on the Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail.  On Sunday was another ride, to Corunna and back, which included a visit to the bicycle museum iat the park in that community.
Terry took six used bikes from Jack's Bicycles in Monroe to the Bike Fest and sold three of them and one of his own, which he also sold.
Here's his photos.
