At left, Grady Snell Jr. flies the standard of the Buffalo Soldiers up and down the Bikes on Broadway event area. His bicycle honors one of the first long-distance bike rides, 1,900 miles from Missoula, Mont., to St. Louis in 41 days during 1897. The epic ride was undertaken by members of the 25th Infantry Bicycle Corps, a black regiment of "buffalo soldiers."

Bikes on Broadway moved to Bay Avenue this year, giving it room for more bikes, vendors, lots of live music and guests. The two-day event, sponsored by the Southern Cruisers Riding Club, is a fundraiser for Our House, which provides residential care for children 7 to 17 who have been abused, neglected or abandoned.
