Bikes on the Bricks in progress in Flint

FLINT, Mich. (WNEM) – Bikes on the Bricks is underway in what’s the last hurrah for downtown Flint’s festival season.

All types of motorbikes lined the bricks of Saginaw Street on Friday with thousands more expected over the weekend.

“The police will start the route around 9am. We have the ride escorted by Ed Henderson’s police. It starts at 11 a.m. from Vehicle City Harley-Davidson. It takes about 40 minutes to drive through the county and then back. All money raised goes to local charities,” said Chris Everson, President of Bikes on the Bricks.

Saturday motorcycle enthusiasts can also expect to see Urias Globe of Death, a family of daredevil motorcyclists.

There will also be music from the John Vance Band in the beer tent.

Everson said new attendees are often surprised by the event in a good way.

“They didn’t expect it in Flint,” Everson said. “If they’ve never been here, they get a sense of what Flint is, and they come down and have a good time. Everyone is welcome… Honda, Harley-Davidson. No matter what you look like, get down. We are there for everyone. We just want to have fun with motorcycles.

There is also a full schedule of events for Sunday which you can find here.
