LOL, apparently Erie didn't expect this big of an event either.
It will be interesting to see what they do next year. My guess is have the main parade on Saturday, or some other time when traffic will be less affected. If they had it any earlier in the day, there obviously wouldn't be all those people lining the roads watching. I don't think they expected 15,000 bikes on a Thursday afternoon.
I'm interested in what the turnout for the other two rides will be..... the one around the peninsula today, and the one from Erie out to wine country tomorrow, my neck of the woods
The fee for the rides is $5 and the money goes to the Shriners hospital, so it's all good.
