When we were visiting the Oak Cliff Bicycle Company yesterday, I noticed a few posters that were promoting Cyclesomatic – a week long bicycle festival in North Oak Cliff. Of course, I had to look deeper into this to find out what it’s all about.

The festival will last from October 2nd to the 11th. The weather should be just about tolerable in north Texas by then.

Here is some info from their site:

Events will include a history-themed group ride, bicycle competitions, Biketoberfest! in Bishop, an Urban Bazaar/Bikefaire, a “Kiddical Mass” Ride, Bike to School Day, BBQ, Bands, Bicycle Films at the Texas Theatre, Art Bike Shows, and guest speaker councilwoman Angela Hunt. New Belgium brewery is sponsoring part of the week, and we’re coordinating efforts with DART, BikeDenton, the Oak Cliff Bicycle Company, the Cube Creative, Eno’s Tavern, and more.

The event will be put on by the Bike Friendly Oak Cliff Group, advocates promoting the creation of better cycling facilities and improved infrastructure in Oak Cliff. Oak Cliff is one of Dallas’ oldest and more eclectic neighborhoods that has done well through the years to remain a friendly and creative destination for folks in the DFW Metroplex.

I will be checking out some of the events during the festival and I’ll report back here. Looks like it’ll be a week of complete bike love, all within one of the coolest parts of Dallas. Please check the Cyclesomatic site for complete details, area info and an event calendar.
