In the wake of the fatal melee that marred the Street Vibrations rally in Sparks, Nevada, over the weekend, the organizers of Las Vegas BikeFest have issued this response:
“While we are disappointed to hear of the incident that occurred earlier this week in Sparks, Las Vegas BikeFest will not let it dampen the festivities and activities that will be occurring several hundred miles away in Las Vegas beginning this Thursday. Las Vegas BikeFest has never had an incident in its 10 years, and we work very closely with law enforcement and our own private security detail to provide a safe event for all attendees. We look forward to a great time and seeing everyone in a few days.”
BikeFest kicks off on Thursday, September 29, and I’ll be there along with SoCal correspondant P.J. Hyland reporting on the doings. Stay tuned.
