Patrons are more than welcome to bring along deckchairs, blankets and picnics. However we do ask that patrons with high deckchairs position themselves towards the back of the park, to ensure they don’t block the view of patrons without them.
There will be a selection of mobile food vendors on site offering dinner and dessert options.

On June 7, 2014, forty-five cyclists, both professional and non-professional riders, from around the world set out on the inaugural Trans Am Bike Race, following the famed TransAmerica Trail. Their mission; cover 4,233 miles in one enormous stage race, traversing through ten states in a transcontinental adventure of epic proportions. INSPIRED TO RIDE follows the journey of a handful of these cyclists. They will endure agonizing climbs in the Rockies, driving winds in the Great Plains and sawtooth switchbacks in the Appalachians all for a pat on the back, bragging rights and a cold beer when its all over. Ultimately, this is a story of the human spirit of these men and women making history and inspired to ride in the ride of a lifetime. The audience experience their journey amidst the jaw-dropping beauty along the TransAmerica Trail with its varied landscapes, intriguing locals and found stories, which dot this path of discovery.
