2024 SBK Bike Pageant

Our annual event returns Sunday, May 19th, for bike-filled fun and a little friendly competition.

The Somerville Bike Kitchen Bike Pageant is a celebration of unique, fun, creative, colorful and/or otherwise one-of-a-kind bikes. We will have a handful of prize categories, ranging from self-explanatory to entirely unserious.
