Evan Kersnar, above, holds up a sign for friends taking his photo Thursday as he works the bicycle valet parking area at the annual BikeFest at the state Capitol.

The event promotes cycling and other clean-air transportation.

Lorena Medina of Sacramento, left, rode 6 1/2 miles to the rally with her dog Itztli riding in a special basket.

Seth Koen arrived with his children Otto, 2, and Fern, 4, on a long-wheelbase cargo cycle.

"I thought we would come and check out all the cool bikes," Koen said.

BikeFest was hosted by the Sacramento Area Council of Governments, the regional Transportation Management Associations and Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates.
