2009 Racine Bike Jam
We're a few days late with these, but here are some photos from the 2009 Bike Jam on Saturday at the Pershing Park Skate Park in Racine. The 12th annual event was organized by Kuko Padilla, the Racine native who has been maintaining the park (often spending his own money to do so) since it opened in 1998. To get an idea of Padilla's relationship to the park, the 35-year-old and his wife Becky were married on top of one of the skate ramps. Becky and Kuko were at the Bike Jam on Saturday grilling food and running the small concession stand. It was a great day ... congratulations to Padilla on another successful jam!
Here are some photos from Saturday afternoon:
