Riverwest

This diverse, offbeat neighborhood has a DIY sensibility that runs deep. You’ll find a little bit of everything here, from funky music venues to intimate restaurants, brewpubs to tiki bars. Riverwest is an eclectic neighborhood with strong communal spirit, home to a community-run bar, a community radio station, and a thriving co-op. There’s no time that spirit is stronger than during the Riverwest 24, an annual 24-hour bike race that’s part street race and part all-night block party.

The Riverwest 24

It's way more than a bike race. It's a gathering of the community where the time spent on a bike is just as important as the stops along the way.
