Only 4 events in California? Wow!
By the way, Loveland is in Colorado, not California.
Would love to see this expanded and made more comprehensive & searchable.
Thanks,

The first annual Bike Week in Tennessee will be held at Nashville from Sept 14 thru 24,2017.

Matthew Forero said...

Yeah, Colorado is not indented properly and makes it look like we have more events in California than we actually do

You missed what might be worth seeing. Nashville 1st inaugural bike week 9/14-24 2017

Trader Online said...

Thanks for the feedback, all! We have fixed the indentation issue so that the Loveland event is properly annotated. We've also went ahead and added the 1st annual Tennessee Bike Week to the list as well!

Additionally, there are certainly hundreds more events occurring this year across the country- we are working toward providing a resource that is more comprehensive and that you are able to sort through. This list was more of a sampling of these events, so if you have any recommendations, we'd love to hear them! We tried to keep the listings between 4 and 6 events per state, and tried to include both the bigger events and newer startup gatherings, as well as events that our readers asked to hear more about. Perhaps you all would be interested in a full list for each state? Let us know- we greatly appreciate your feedback and can't wait to provide you with these great new resources.
