We brought both of our bikes, an Electra cruiser and a Globe Work path-and-pavement, with us this year. With the two bike seats we had enough room for four people to ride to the show every day. No need to rent extra bikes for folks when you've got a couple Companion Bike Seats!
There were five of us staying at the house, so someone always had to walk, but we traded off each day. The bikes (and bike seats) turned what would have been an hour and a half walk into a 30 minute trip.
We went to Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival again this year for weekend 2, and this time we brought two bike seats with us to the show. Traffic getting in and out of the parking lot every night is incredibly difficult, and even with the ease of Uber being readily available, you still end up sitting in a long line of cars. Bikes end up being the perfect way to get to and from the show, that is if you're not camping of course. And there are plenty of places to safely lock your bike against a fence close to the entrance as well. In over three years of riding bikes to Coachella, we've never had a bike stolen.
The weekend was a complete success ... three full days of great music, great weather, great people, and great fun. It even rained a tiny bit on Friday, keeping everything cool, the perfect start to the weekend. Complete sensory overload, with massive art structures all around the grounds, and over 6 stages music playing for at least 12 hours every day (if you get there early enough in the day). There was even a giant spaceman cruising around!
