Bicycles and Balloons

Our ever-growing city of Bend is alive and well all year round, but especially in the summer months when various activities are organized every weekend, with thousands of people, locals and visitors flocking to enjoy the festivities. This past weekend two particular events highlighted the city buzz. The Cascade Cycling Classic was the first, held over a week, but culminating with the bicycle criterium around downtown, as races for both men and women were held, for semi-pros and for professionals.
The second event was the Balloons over Bend, which was cancelled on Friday and Saturday because of wind, but was held on Sunday morning as 7 colorful balloons hovered over the city. These photos I took yesterday show highlights from both events. (Click on each photo to enlarge)
