These were taken yesterday during the 5:30-6:30 hour. 1,000 to 1,500 people there maximum. ALL cars in the civic center parking lot had Maryland plates.
When will you people finally get it. Your local media are nothing but LIARS. Do you people not recall the days when they'd say, news you can trust. News you can depend on. Fair and balanced. Do you recall the shame when one of them was caught with fake news, lies?
My pictures are not lies. They come from the very people/taxpayers, (one after the other) who will spend years paying off the massive financial losses from this event. Yeah, people are pissed off and they should be.
I'm sure tomorrow we'll start hearing how successful this event was. They won't be able to pay the ELECTRIC BILL for this event, let alone all the other massive expenses. Vendors won't be back next year. Finally, I'll bet next week for Bike Week your media won't be covering up the next storm to follow the one from this weekend.
And no, we won't lie at the last minute and call Bike Week a rain event. We're prepared for the worst and guess what, we might even lost money but that's the risk an INDEPENDENT business takes, time will tell.
Good luck collecting money from the city for all the food served to volunteers at the La Quinta Hotel. Oh yeah, they're already talking to SBYNews.
