Superbomb Star Bomb

STARBOMB is back!

Starbomb is a downhill cruise from Roanoke’s Mill Mountain star to downtown, all on tiny children’s bikes (or whatever human-powered transportation you choose).

The Superbomb Star Bomb will celebrate the beginning of bike month and serve as a send off to Roanoke’s own Sam Hensley, a longtime Bike Shorts Film Festival filmmaker and organizer of tons of bike fun.

Transportation will be provided up Mill Mountain, you’re on your own after that!
