A Biking Claremont 4th of July

Were there more bikes that people? Was Indian Hill flowing curb to curb with patriotic bedecked two and three-wheelers? Should Cycle Claremont be revived? Is there not a defunct local golf course that could be made over into a bike park? Is anyone out here not wearing red, white and/or blue? Has the city's finest bike patrol been reduced to a single rider? Why do the campus police (Claremont Colleges) not ride bikes, rather than those little electric carts?

I have missed the last couple Independence Day celebrations in town, and forgot how much fun they are - from the pancake breakfast in the morning, to the festival, through the parade, and into the evening get-togethers and fireworks, it can be a full day.
