    HEY! Bicycle Blast is back for its second year on Saturday, June 12th, 9am to 4pm, in Downtown Chesterton, Indiana (Cross streets Broadyway & Calumet).

    The event will feature a Professional BMX Stunt Show, Bike Trials demonstrated by the Midwest Bike Trials club, exhibits by the Outback Trail Commission, and booths from local and regional Biking clubs. There will also be a Bicycle Safety Course for young kids, run by the Kiwanis Club, and the first 75 kids to complete the course will receive free helmets provided by Porter Hospital.

    For more information & pictures from last year, go to: http://www.DuneBig.com

    We're hoping local Rat Rodders will bring their bikes out to show off them off! If you can get together a group of 5 or more, we will gladly set aside a section just for you to display your bikes and tell visitors all about them! Go to the DuneBig website & use the Contact Us page to let us know if you'd like to do this.
