Spokes & Ink is a festival in Rochester, NY that brings bicyclists and artists together. This event on Monroe Avenue showcases the diversity of both groups – avid cyclists, recreational riders, the environmentally aware, letterpress printers, graphic designers, and talented artists of all sorts! Individuals and families alike will all be entertained.

Your business or organization could benefit from the exposure that is possible at Spokes & Ink. Previously we’ve had Rochester Area Sports Park give a trick biking demo, entertaining the crowd with skill and athleticism. Rochester Cycling Alliance sponsored a bike safety clinic and shared information on bike donations to help people who need bikes for work. These activities are in addition to many hands-on art opportunities for all ages.

As a bonus, Monroe Ave event “Show on Monroe” will bring additional attendees through the festival with its day full of scavenger hunts, street performers, and special deals at area businesses.
