May 31 to June 9 is Halifax Bike Week in the HRM with a huge lineup of bike-related events. Here are a couple of North End haps next weekend that we dig the sounds of.

Saturday, June 1

The Annual HRM Used Bike Auction kicks off at 10AM at the Devonshire Arena. Doors open at 8AM so bidders can check out what's going on the block. Perfect place to score your 2013 summer ride.

The very same night, jump on your new sweet ride and bike over to the AFCOOP parking lot for some bike-in cinema. They're screening bike-themed short flicks complete with popcorn. Starts at 9PM, goes to 11, and best - it's free.

Sunday, June 2

The Bikefest Bash goes down on the Common sponsored by Mountain Equipment Coop. It's a full-on street party and everyone's invited for 'bike clinics, bike swaps and demos, group rides, gear giveaways and more.'

We love our bikes, Halifax. See you on two wheels.
