Patriotic Bicycle Parade – Residents Celebrate July 4th

Sharon Groth

The fourth annual Fourth of July bicycle parade at SaddleBrooke Ranch started celebrating early. Decorated bicyclists, bicycles and even a few golf carts gathered in front of hosts Sharon and Steve Groth’s home at 8:00 a.m. for refreshments and camaraderie before touring the Ranch with red, white and blue and smiling faces.

Bob and Barbara Drury of Egret Trail led the parade cheering faction by again hosting the Egret Trail viewing party in their driveway. All parade participants loved bicycling by that wonderful happy group and certainly appreciated everyone else who also came out to wave us on.

Our thanks go to all who joined in the fun to start the Fourth of July with a celebration of this special day. Hope to see you all in the parade next year. Pictures were provided by Steve Weiss and Florence Messer.
