On October 16th, the 2010 Marin County Biketoberfest took place from 11 am to 6 pm. The small town of fairfax not only brought out locals but people throughout California—and in some cases other states.

In true Oktoberfest form, Biketoberfest had live bands, unlimited beer for $25 and all types of foods (not included in the $25 beer fee) that could easily make anyone salivate.

Some of the companies in attendance were CamelBak, Chrome, and Pivot/BH. One of the more impressive booths was a boot full of vintage cruisers that brought many cyclists back to their childhoods.

With the weather near perfect, the 2010 Biketoberfest was a fun-filled event to enjoy with family and friends.
