Chopper City

Ladies and gentlemen, start your (two-wheeled) engines. It's time, once again, for Arizona Bike Week's Cyclefest.

Bikers and bike enthusiasts can eat, drink, ride, mingle, and rock out to live musical performances from the likes of Vince Neil (of Mötley Crüe, duh), Ratt, Dierks Bentley, and George Thorogood. Today's festivities include the Ladies, Lingerie, and Learning ride presented by Arizona Ribbon Riders Breast Cancer Memorial as well as the annual T-bar Trail ride (yes, the "T" stands for "titty") led by Neil, Michael Ballard and Angie from Full Throttle Saloon, and celebrity bike builder Paul Yaffe. At 4 p.m., it's time to rock 'n roll with a performance by local ax-man Jack Ripper, while at 9, it will be your final chance to spin those bike wheels "round and round" to catch Ratt's performance at the nearby Handlebar Saloon.
