With Yoga on the Downtown Common in the morning from 10-11 a.m., BrewCycle in the afternoon from 12-4 p.m. and the Masashi Nakamura dinner concert at Terra Brasilis from 5-7 p.m., DFI has organized an event for every member of the family this Saturday all within Framingham's vibrant urban core.
BrewCycle, an event hosted by DFI in collaboration with Exhibit 'A' Brewing Company and the 1854 Cycling Company, will bring bikes, brews, and live music to Exhibit 'A''s brewing facility on Morton Street. This is the second annual BrewCycle event to be hosted at Exhibit 'A' and after last year's successful Saturday afternoon event, this year is shaping up to be even bigger.
n+1 Cyclery, another downtown Framingham bike shop, will be hosting fix-a-flat workshops. The 1854 Cycling Company will be holding E-Bike demonstrations and revealing its new line of apparel. Children and families are welcome to attend. Kids can practice their cycling skills on a safety rodeo course and parents can enjoy freshly poured beer from Exhibit 'A'. Food will be available on-site from the Sabor Latino, which specializes in Cuban cuisine.
In an effort to truly promote cycling and sustainability, Papa Wheelies in Natick has organized an 18-mile social group ride beginning and ending at Exhibit 'A'. Anyone who is interested in participating in the group ride can sign up here.
The ride begins at 10:15 a.m.
Also on Saturday, DFI will be hosting the first session of its Summer Yoga series on the Downtown Common.
Each yoga class during this series costs $5. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite. For those who wish to attend many classes throughout the series, a $60 pass can be purchased that offers unlimited access to the classes during the 15-week series.

After a full day of outdoor activities, DFI is sponsoring a concert at Terra Brasilis on Waverly Street. The dinner concert will feature the guitar and bongo music of Masashi Nakamura.
