SALT LAKE CITY – It’s a lot like prom, just with bicycles, adults and alcohol.

Bicycle lovers gathered Saturday for the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective’s annual Bike Prom, and participants in formal attire started at Liberty Park and then cycled to Pierpoint Place for a party.

The venue included hanging bikes, a DJ, adult beverages and a photographer.

Doug Tall is a volunteer with the Bicycle Collective, and he said it was a fun event to attend.

“I heard this was a real good event, so I brought my wife to the prom here,” Tall said.

All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective.

According to their website: “The mission of the Bicycle Collective is to promote cycling as an effective and sustainable form of transportation and as a cornerstone of a cleaner, healthier, and safer society. The Collective provides refurbished bicycles and educational programs to the community, focusing on children and lower income households.”
